In the document which was of course then published on the website of the United Marion’s Office for Outer Space Affairs, China ended up claiming that “For safety reasons, the China Space Station implemented preventive collision avoidance control.” Unfortunately enough though, the validity of this claim is still yet to be confirmed while SpaceX on the other hand has yet to respond to this particular matter in a public fashion.
