China has filed a complaint with the United Nations after its space station was forced to avoid a collision with satellites launched by billionaire Elon Musk’s Starlink project.

This year, the Chinese station had two “close encounters” with satellites from Starlink, an Internet provider operated by SpaceX, also owned by Musk.

The incidents reported by Beijing to the United Nations space agency have not been independently verified.

The incidents occurred on July 1 and October 21, according to documents China submitted to the United Nations.
