Dr. Rasha Ghoneim, during an online press conference of the National Institute for Astronomical Research, revealed the latest developments of the Chinese missile, and said: -
The missile headed unexpectedly to the Earth, currently rotating to 160 km from the earth, which makes it rotate in a complete rotation around the earth, and it will try to enter the Earth again in the coming days, as a result of its interaction with the atmosphere and is expected to fall and crash at an unspecified point between On May 8-10, its fall point cannot be precisely determined, but it has been observed to be swinging normally.
And she continued: As a result of more than 50 space flights, space has become full of debris and thousands of flying objects around the Earth, and it is possible that they will enter the atmosphere again without any previous warnings.
It is possible that there will be more objects from unattended space waste, which also pose a danger, and this week, about 13 thousand to 19 thousand objects of waste were detected, indicating the rate of collision in poorly populated areas, confirming that these accidents are frequent and there is no room for panic .
Dr. Gad Al-Qadi, head of the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research, had revealed the details of the circulation of global and satellite sites, the news of the Chinese Long March 5B (CZ-5B) missile out of control, which caused panic among a number of the world's population and those interested in space science.
He explained that this missile has lost control, and is in an attempt to return to Earth uncontrolled after its launch from the Chinese space station, as it is likely that part of the Chinese Long March 5B missile that was used to launch the first unit of the Chinese space station to the Earth's atmosphere will fall. In the coming days, it is unclear when and where the debris will land, while data available from the monitoring sites of space objects indicate the possibility of entering the Earth's atmosphere on May 9, 2021.
