After China’s space launch, the Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA) said debris from the Long March 3B rocket is likely to fall due to imbalance. The agency has also given the approximate locations where the rocket debris could fall.
The good thing is that there is no possibility of rocket debris falling on the ground area or urban area. However, due to this, ships, planes, fishing boats, etc. they may be at risk. Although the exact information about where the debris will fall is not yet known. The agency has said it will largely depend on weather and Earth’s rotation. The Philippine Space Agency has said that if rocket debris is visible, local authorities should be informed immediately.
The agency has asked the general public to stay away from the rocket wreckage, which may contain toxic residue. Significantly, yesterday’s launch was China’s second space launch in a week. This is not the first time that Chinese rocket remnants have “disturbed” the Philippines and other neighboring countries. The US space agency NASA has been saying that China does not launch its space rockets to Earth in a controlled manner.
