US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The head of NASA Jim Bridenstine chided the Chinese authorities in an uncontrolled fall stage Long March-5B missile fragments which fell on the African village a few days ago.
“The empty Long March-5B central tank weighing about 20 tons was in an uncontrolled fall along the entire trajectory that passed over Los Angeles and other densely populated areas. In fact, this step, the largest object in almost 30 uncontrollably falling from orbit, falling a little earlier, could hit New York.In two villages in Côte d’Ivoire reported the discovery of alleged fragments of a fallen missile stage.
There is no better explanation for why we need an agreement on Artemis (agreement on the rules for the exploration of the moon). It is vital for the United States to develop and establish standards of conduct against such irresponsible actions. Space exploration should inspire hope and curiosity, not fear,” he said.
Previously, information appeared that the wreckage of the central rocket tank fell in the village of Mahonou, near the city of Bocanada in the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire. At the same time, the area is located along the path of a possible flight of debris.
