The Chinese Rocket re-entered the atmosphere: The Videos and where it Fell

After the minute-by -minute uncertainty of the Chinese Long March 5B rocket, debris from the propellant finally entered the atmosphere this Saturday and impacted this afternoon over the Indian Ocean, according to the United States Space Command.

“The Long March-5B rocket of the People’s Republic of China re-entered the atmosphere over the Indian Ocean on July 30 at 10:45 a.m. (1645 GMT),” confirmed the US Space Force Command in its Twitter account. Twitter.

For details on the dispersion of the debris and the exact location of the impact, the US military center cited the Chinese authorities, which on July 24 launched the second of the three modules of its Tiangong space station, which should be fully operational by end of the year.

Hours earlier, the Chinese Manned Space Agency had said on the Weibo social network that most of the wreckage had burned up on re-entry over the Sulu Sea, a body of water between the island of Borneo and the Philippines.

Long March-5B rocket

The Long March-5B rocket was not designed to control its descent from orbit, something that, like previous launches, has drawn criticism.

Meanwhile, NASA administrator Bill Nelson took aim at China for not sharing specific information about the trajectory of the Long March 5B rocket as it fell to Earth.

Nelson added that all countries should “share this type of information in advance to enable reliable predictions about the impact risk of debris, especially for heavy vehicles, such as the Long March 5B, which carry a significant risk of loss. of lives and property.

There is immense heat and friction when craft enter the atmosphere, so parts can burn and disintegrate, but larger craft, like the Long March-5B, may not be completely destroyed.

A similar situation occurred in May last year when the core stage of this rocket re-entered the atmosphere and fell over the Indian Ocean , while in 2020 debris from the rocket fell into the North Atlantic.

The Long March 5B rocket blasted off from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Hainan on June 24 at 2:22 pm Beijing time. The 22-ton Wentian laboratory, stored on top of the rocket, arrived at the orbiting station 13 hours after launch.
