SpaceX Glitch Prevented Communication to Avoid Satellite Collision

SpaceX said a bug in its “on-call paging system” prevented it from better communication and subsequent coordination with the European Space Agency (ESA) to avoid a possible collision between two satellites orbiting Earth, according to a Tuesday-published report at the Verge. The ESA moved its satellite to avoid being hit by the SpaceX “Starlink” satellite.
