Where the Chinese Rocket Has Landed
Some have criticized China for not attempting to monitor the descent of the ” out of control rocket “, but the Chinese government has stated that it is “not worth panicking over.” According to China news, the “out of control” Chinese rocket has landed in the Indian Ocean.
According to the coordinates provided by the Chinese state media, citing the China Manned Space Engineering Office, the point of impact was in the ocean west of the Maldives archipelago.
Parts of the rocket re-entered the atmosphere at 10:24 a.m. Beijing time (0224 GMT) and landed at a location with coordinates of longitude 72.47 degrees east and latitude 2.65 degrees north, according to state media.
On April 29, the Long March 5B rocket lifted off from the Wenchang Space Launch Centre, carrying Tianhe – the first module of China’s future space station – into orbit.” It is critical that China and all spacefaring nations and commercial entities act responsibly and transparently in space to ensure the safety, stability, security, and long-term sustainability of outer space activities,” Nelson said.
