Space clashes: ESA risks an accident with Space X
A smart maneuver avoids the impact
Today, on September 3, the European Space Agency (ESA) was forced to make a maneuver to avoid clashing with a spaceship of the "Starlink" project, a satellite internet connection plan developed by the American aerospace manufacturer SpaceX based on the deployment of a constellation of several thousand telecommunications satellites.
As a result of this potentially catastrophic lack of collision in orbit, ESA came to the conclusion that in the future, with the advent of the so-called mega-constellations, the maneuvers needed to avoid impacts must be anticipated.
Elon Musk's company has stated that it will not move the spacecraft from its orbit.
