SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour SpaceX Craft had close contact with an unidentified object. The incident happened before successfully reaching the International Space Station, a report said. US Space Command warned the crew aboard the spacecraft of a possible Collision with an unknown object after launching into orbit on Friday.
“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 spokesperson Kelly Humphries told Futurism.
The confining factor about the mission is that the astronauts have been compelled to take on the spacecraft after completing various dress rehearsals. It is the second mission, while the Crew-3 and Crew-4 are scheduled for launch later this year. SpaceX has been well on track to conduct new missions every quarter to avoid any kind of backlashes in the future. Fortunately, the mission is panning out without any collision or interference or it would have caused a lot of tragic events across the company.
