China's anti-satellite test in January approximately doubled the debris hazard to the international space station for several weeks.

That word Thursday from Michael Griffin, NASA administrator, speaking at a symposium in Colorado Springs.

He said the debris has dispersed to levels considered indistinguishable from the background.

In the test, a Chinese missile destroyed an old Chinese weather satellite.
