Debris of ‘Long March-5B Y2 rocket’ fell in the Indian Ocean

Debris of ‘Long March-5B Y2 rocket’ fell in the Indian Ocean

    • The debris of the last phase of China’s ‘Long March-5B Y2 rocket’ has dropped near the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. Recently, China sent some components of its under-construction ‘space station’ from this rocket into space.
    • Among these components, China had sent the first component ‘Tianhe module’ i.e. ‘Heavenly Harmony’ for the construction of its space station. Tianhe module will act as the management and control center of China’s space station.
    • The construction of China’s space station will be completed by the end of next year. China’s space station is named ‘Tiangong’.
    • Tiangong will be the second space station after the International Space Station (ISS). Its life span will be 10 to 15 years, that is, it can work till the year

Related Concerns and Issues:

  • The debris fall of the Long March-5BY2 rocket is a worrisome situation, according to astronomers that re-entry of debris into the Earth’s atmosphere has been uncontrolled 4 times before.
  • Had this rocket fallen on the site of the earth, it would have caused great damage, now serious concerns have arisen about this matter.
  • Seeing the incident, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) criticized China and described it as a “failed to meet the responsible standards”.
  • Some astronomers have expressed the possibility that some part of this debris, which is burnt in the atmosphere, is likely to harm humans.

Way ahead

  • Spacefaring nations must meet all responsible flight standards. For this, the risk of harm to Earth inhabitants should also be minimized when the space objects re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere. Also, maximum transparency should be brought about the actions taken by us in this area.
