China’s ‘out-of-control’ Rocket Crashes Into Indian Ocean Near Maldives

China has maintained that its out-of-control rocket posed ‘very little risk for objects on the ground’, as it crashed into the Indian Ocean near Maldives after traveling more than five countries.

The rocket called the Long March 5B, lost control after it was launched on April 29 from Wenchang Space Launch Centre.

Chinese state media reported stated that parts of the rocket re-entered the atmosphere at 10:24 a.m. Beijing time (0224 GMT) and landed at a location with the coordinates of longitude 72.47 degrees east and latitude 2.65 degrees north.

Several countries were expecting massive debris but the China Manned Space Engineering Office said most of the debris was burnt up in the atmosphere.

Also the debris of the first ever Long March 5B fell on Ivory Coast and many buildings were damaged but no casualties or injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, China has maintained that the rocket debris is likely to crash on land since most of the earth surface is covered by water.
