SpaceX and NASA sign landmark deal to avoid crashing into each in space – 'It's critical'

The agreement to maintain good, quality communication between the space agencies is “critical”, according to NASA’s acting Administrator, Steve Jurczyk.

Everyday life on Earth relies on data from satellites, so it’s crucial that NASA and SpaceX work in tandem.

He said: “Society depends on space-based capabilities for global communications, navigation, weather forecasting, and much more.

“With commercial companies launching more and more satellites, it’s critical we increase communications, exchange data, and establish best practices to ensure we all maintain a safe space environment.”
