Sentinel satellite's first day in space was unusually tense

Europe's newest Earth-watching satellite had to dodge an uncontrolled NASA spacecraft just after reaching orbit last week, putting engineers on edge until they could safely maneuver the nearly $400 million Sentinel 1A satellite out of the way.

European Space Agency officials disclosed the close call and the nail-biting response by ground controllers in a blog post this week.
