The state corporation “Roscosmos” has informed on the social network Twitter about options to avoid a possible collision of a satellite with the International Space Station. We are talking about the need to evade the ISS, and the proposed maneuver must be performed on September 14 from 00:00 to 01:00 Moscow time. At the same time, experts assess the likelihood of an extremely dangerous approach of BRICSat-2 with the station in hundredths of a percent.
Along with this, Roskosmos notes that an American satellite assigned to the US Navy was launched into near-earth space last year. The launch took place using the Falcon Heavy launch vehicle, owned by the American company SpaceX Elon Musk.
