The ESA fires satellite thrusters to avoid a collision

ESA was forced to reposition an earth observation satellite to avoid a possible collision with a member of SpaceX's Starlink mega-constellation. The evasive maneuver was only half an orbit before it could come to an orbit collision. The near-earth orbit becomes denser, increasing the risk of satellite-satellite collisions. Space agencies around the world are constantly tracking both active and defective …
