European Space Agency (ESA) successfully conducted a maneuver to prevent one of its satellites from colliding with the constellation satellite Starlink, a subsidiary of Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

According to the mirror, they form a constellation Starlink launched by SpaceX in May, 60 small communications satellites orbiting the Earth at an altitude of 550 km, which eventually formed part of a giant constellation of nearly 12,000 satellites, providing cheap and reliable internet access worldwide.

Astronomers have previously warned that the constellation Starlink, could increase the risk of space collision, and now, for the first time ever, the ESA has been forced to maneuver one of its satellites away from a constellation Starlink to avoid the collision, it has been reported that the Moon Ecological Space Aeolis Earth. The European Space Agency (ESA) launched its defenses on Monday after experts at the agency’s space debris team calculated the risk of collision between satellites.

According to the report, scientists have decided that the safest option is to increase Aeolus, its altitude passes over the satellite SpaceX, where the maneuver took about half an orbit before the potential collision.

Shortly after the collision was predicted, the ESA called Aeolus: “It is very rare to conduct maneuvers to avoid collisions using active satellites, The vast majority of maneuvers avoid ESA is the result of dead satellites or fragments from previous collisions.”

“These avoidance maneuvers take a lot of time to prepare from determining the future orbital positioning of all operating spacecraft, to calculating the risk of collisions and the possible consequences of different actions”, the agency said.

“ESA is preparing to automate this process using AI, and from the initial assessment of a potential collision to a distant satellite, automated systems have become essential to protect our space infrastructure”, the agency said.
