You are Remnants of a fugitive Chinese missilereleased last week, crashed this afternoon in the Indian Ocean.
The fall comes after days of tension from experts who fear the material could hit some populated places on the ground. The missile was 21 tons.
According to the US Space Command, the remnants of the rocket entered the atmosphere at about 11:45 a.m. (Brasilia time).
An observational exercise conducted by Aerospace Corporation, a US technical analysis organization, indicated the remote possibilities of precipitation material in the area in the Cabo San Lucas Peninsula region of Mexico.
Falling into the sea was a source of relief for the residents of the place and for the experts who followed the case.
A Long March 5B rocket left Beijing’s Wentian station in the early hours of Sunday (24) and moved a solar laboratory to the Tiangong Space Station. It reached the site on time, but some of its units did not have any “control plane” to return to Earth.
At the time, data from the US Space Command showed that parts of the Long March 5B rocket “float on their own.”
Although the risk of “hit” from falling missile units around the world is low, recent studies published in Nature Astronomy have categorized the practice of allowing missile parts to return to Earth uncontrollably as an “unnecessary risk”.
