It's history, but funny. Usually. Mostly.
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." ]
