ESA forced to redirect satellite after SpaceX ignores collision risk

As per reports, a European satellite changed its position in orbit on Monday to avoid a potential collision with one of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites. The European Space Agency (ESA) performed the maneuver after calculating a higher than usual probability that the two satellites might run into each other. SpaceX did not move its satellite, blaming a computer bug that prevented proper communication.
