The Satellite Collision that Never Happened?

What has been reported by mainstream press to have been a satellite collision
in late January, which allegedly damaged a Russian satellite, never took
place, according to a U.S. defense official.
Major news outlets reported last week that the Russian BLITS satellite
collided with a piece of orbital debris left after China conducted an
antisatellite test using its own Feng Yun 1C satellite as a target in 2007.
They quote experts at the Center for Space Standards & Innovation, who say the
collision occurred Jan. 22.
