It is speculated that she will be down in more than a week. It was less likely to land in populated areas, but it was not zero. Especially since parts of a Chinese missile landed in a C ഒരുte d’Ivoire village last year.
Many are concerned about the uncontrolled return of the rocket and the lack of communication from the Chinese government and space agency. Newly appointed NASA Administrator Senator Bill Nelson has issued a statement condemning China over the incident. It is also a reminder that any organization that conducts public or private space launches must act responsibly.
“States conducting space experiments will seek to reduce the risk to humans and terrestrial property from re-entry into space, and to increase transparency in these operations. It is clear that China does not meet the standards for space debris,” said Nelson. It’s important to ensure security and long – term sustainability. “
Space debris includes old satellites, space stations, parts of a spacecraft, and even a spatula. Most of them burn completely in the atmosphere. The largest space debris is generally controlled to end up in the ocean rather than populated areas.
The Long March 5B was 30 meters long and weighed 22.5 tons. It is therefore the eighth heaviest object to fall to Earth from orbit, but the fourth largest uncontrolled return.
Fortunately, this time no one was affected, but the uncontrolled return of the Chinese missile raises concerns about future plans. There are plans to launch more missiles at the Tiangong space station.
