There has been an alert on board the International Space Station. The three astronauts on board were forced to evacuate to a Russian escape module because of a threat of a collision with some space debris. However, NASA says the crew has now returned to the station after the danger passed.

The space debris has been described as an old motor from a satellite. NASA says the evacuation to the escape module was a precautionary measure, as the Russian craft is able to leave the station quickly in case of emergencies.
