The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that the rocket that carried the core module of the Chinese Space Station into space and then got out of control would burst as soon as it enters the earth’s atmosphere, and it is unlikely to cause any damage.
“As far as we can understand from the design of the technologies the rocket has, most of the parts will burn and break down when they enter the atmosphere. Aviation activities and the probability of causing any damage to the ground are also very low.” Using the statement, Vang stated that the relevant department will make a statement about the situation later.
On the other hand, the BBC’s report noted that after the rocket is out of control, parts of the rocket that are resistant to high temperatures caused by friction in the atmosphere may fall to the world.
Long March 5B was launched into space on April 29
The Long March-5B rocket was launched into space on April 29 to carry the first piece of the Chinese Space Station and its core module Tienhi (Celestial Harmony) into space.
After the launch, the Tianhi module left the rocket and entered its planned orbit.
The main body of the rocket also had to land at a pre-planned point on Earth.
