The 25-ton stage of China's Long March 5B rocket, which brought into space a laboratory module called Wenian for a Chinese orbital station, burned in dense layers of atmosphere over the Indian Ocean, writes TASS with reference to the statement of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
The Chinese Space Agency's social media account, WeChat, reports that this occurred on Sunday, 00:55 p.m. The Agency specified that some of the steps left by combustion in the atmosphere fell in the Philippines in the area of the Sulu Sea at 119 degrees east longitude and 9.1 degrees north latitude.
According to the Center for Orbital and Reentry Debris Studies experts .
The fear of some foreign media that CZ-5B debris could cause harm to humans and objects was fortunately unfounded.
The CZ-5B rocket was launched on 24 July, bringing into orbit the 20-ton and 18-metre-long Wenyan space station module, which was successfully connected to the already in-orbit main Tianhae module.
