Kelly Humphries, NASA spokesman assured that, “the NASA / SpaceX team was informed of the possible conjunction by the United States Space Command ”. In addition, he added, “The object that is being tracked is classified as ‘unknown’ and the possibility of the conjunction got so close to the closest approach time that there was no time to calculate and execute a debris avoidance maneuver with confidence, so the SpaceX team chose to have the crew don their pressure suits for caution”.
The incident has piqued the curiosity of the Pentagon
The Pentagon reportedly notified and warned NASA about the possibility of an accident after the launch of the spacecraft. Erin Dick, spokeswoman for the United States Space Command confirmed that, “after further analysis, the 18th Space Control Squadron quickly determined that there was no conjunction threat, that everyone on board is safe, and the spacecraft was not at risk.”
On the other hand, according to spokesman Humphries, the closest the UFO from the ships went 45 kilometers away, however, “there was no real danger to the crew or the spacecraft.”
