Move over ESA observation satellite, SpaceX has no plans to move their satellite out of the way

quote [ On Monday, the European Space Agency was forced to move its observation satellite aside to make room for a SpaceX satellite in the Starlink constellation. When the ESA contacted Starlink about the increasingly close approach last Wednesday, the company reportedly said they had no plans to move their satellite out of the way.

Holger Krag, ESA: "What I want is an organised way of doing space traffic. It must be clear when you have such a situation who has to react. It cannot be when we have 10,000 satellites in space that there are operators writing the email what to do. This is not how I imagine modern spaceflight." ]

When reached for comment, Elon Musk accused the ESA of frotteurism.

?But I was really surprised that it didn?t hurt as much as I thought it would.?

So, in the name of science, he put himself through the pain barrier. ]

Don't ask how I found this, just absorb it like I did.

It's great.
