A piece of space debris flew dangerously close to Crew Dragon 2

SpaceX said space debris flew near their device. However, it later turned out that its trajectory would not hurt Crew 2.

SpaceX engineers said a piece of space debris flew past their Crew 2 spacecraft. Scientists did not track this object and said that it was suddenly at a “dangerous distance” from the device.

Space debris appeared as the four astronauts were getting ready for bed. They were ordered to return to their suits and buckle up in the event of a collision. However, after a few minutes, SpaceX engineers noted that the threat of a collision had passed.

As the space debris approached, the staff told the astronauts that the debris appeared to be flying past Crew Dragon 2. Its trajectory assumed it would fly at a greater distance than originally anticipated. After some time, it turned out that the debris flew past the device without incident.

After this incident, the SpaceX spacecraft delivered four astronauts to the orbital station. Shane Kimbrough and Megan MacArthur of NASA, ESA astronaut Thomas Peske and Japan’s Akihiko Hoshide will be on the ISS for a time with the crew of Crew Dragon 1.
