Chinese rocket in fall, “no alarmism, very small fragments”


May 8, 2021

On the Chinese rocket “we have to go easy on alarmism. Monitoring is always precise and it is difficult for serious damage to occur. This is because we must consider that the return of the rocket into the atmosphere will cause important fragmentation, and in the end very small pieces will arrive on our planet. I repeat, the monitoring by everyone is constant and reassures us considerably “. Thus to AdnKronos ⁠⁠⁠Emanuele Sillato, secretary of the Astris Astrofili Association, referring to the falling fragments of the space rocket expected for tonight. Read also “Of course – he added – the increase in these increasingly frequent launch activities, in agreement with the space agencies, means that an international regulatory system that can regulate them is necessary as soon as possible”.
