Associated Press: A piece of Long March 5B missile will fall to the ground. It is not known when and where

The Long March 5B missile, which recently launched a unit from a planned Chinese space station, may soon enter orbit uncontrollably, and part of it may fall to the ground. It is not known exactly when and where it will happen – the media wrote Wednesday. The Guardian quoted Harvard astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell as saying: “Maybe not good.”

Items, according to the Associated Press Rockets Once this is done, spacecraft are usually steered for controlled destruction by friction in the atmosphere. However, this did not happen with the Chinese missile clip, the Associated Press writes.

In March, parts of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 missile fell to the ground in Washington state and in the ocean off the coast of Oregon, the agency said.

Part of the Long March 5B missile will fall to the ground. It is not known where and when

A Long March 5B rocket was launched into orbit last Thursday, one of the main units of the planned Chinese space station, Tiangong (“Heavenly Palace”). It then went into temporary orbit on its own and now orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, flying so fast that space agencies cannot predict where it will enter the atmosphere.

And the US Department of Defense expects that to happen on Saturday. However, where to return to the atmosphere will only be possible a few hours before this event – the statement was written Pentagon. Some experts fear that the missile shrapnel could land in areas inhabited by residents. “It may not be good,” Harvard University astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell was quoted by The Guardian newspaper as saying.

According to The Guardian, since 1990, no object weighing more than 10 tons has been intentionally left in orbit to re-enter the atmosphere in a controlled manner. The main part of the Long March 5B missile weighs more than 20 tons, according to available information.

However, in an interview with CNN, McDowell estimated that the risk to humans is small, and that the Pacific Ocean is the most likely site for a potential collapse, as it covers the largest area.
