Are mercury emissions from satellite electric propulsion an environmental concern?

We published a paper about the environmental impact of using mercury as a propellant in massive satellite constellations.

I feel proud to have authored a paper! Environmental science isn’t my usual thing, and I don’t normally publish professionally, so the experience was awkward and often frustrating. But with some help from distant collaborators and supportive friends, it’s been published finally.
