Long March 5 missile launch in southern China on July 24, 2022

US and Chinese officials say the debris of a Chinese Long March 5B missile has fallen over the Indo-Pacific.

The China National Space Administration said most of the debris of the Long March 5 rocket was uprooted and destroyed during the fall into the atmosphere, and said the Sulu Sea in the Pacific Ocean is where the debris fell to the Earth’s surface.

Earlier, space experts said that the chances of a rocket landing in a populated area are very low.

The uncontrolled landing of the rocket’s primary stage in the atmosphere raised questions about responsibility for space junk.
