SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavor rocket had a narrow escape with a unidentified item before effectively arriving at the International Space Station, a report said.
US Space Command cautioned the team on board the shuttle of a potential crash with an obscure article subsequent to dispatching into space on Friday, Futurism announced.
“The possibility of the conjunction came so close to the closest approach time that there wasn’t time to compute and execute a debris avoidance maneuver with confidence, so the SpaceX team elected to have the crew don their pressure suits out of an abundance of caution,” NASA representative Kelly Humphries told Futurism.
At its nearest point, the item passed around 28 miles from the shuttle, the report said.
At last, “there was no real danger to the crew or the spacecraft,” Humphries told the power source.
Team Dragon Endeavor made it to the International Space Station on Saturday
