Beijing is complaining that satellites affected by the Elon Musk Spacex are about to hit the station, and the United States is asking the United States to protect one Chinese space station and three crew members.

The government has filed a complaint with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on December 6, alleging that Tiangong had set up “evacuation routes” to prevent a possible collision with the Starlinink satellites, which have been hijacked by space exploration corporations.

“The United States must take immediate action to prevent such incidents from happening again,” said spokeswoman Jao Ligian.

Jao accused Washington of failing to fulfill its obligations to “safeguard astronauts” under the 1967 Space Accords.

The US Embassy in Beijing did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Musk is the chairman of Tesla Inc., an electric vehicle manufacturer.

However, Beijing is unlikely to tolerate any unrest in China, as Tiangong is a project of honor for the ruling Communist Party.

Tiangong’s main module was launched in April. Following a 90-day mission, the first crew returned to Earth in September. The second crew of two men and one woman arrived on a mission on October 16 for six months.

Space X plans to launch 2,000 Starlink satellites. Spexx launched 52 satellites on the Rocket on December 18 on the 34th and most recent spacecraft.
