Massive Chunks From The Rocket Mission By China Almost Hits New York City
11This was a milestone for China
As we said earlier this was a milestone for China as this was the most powerful rocket they have made to date. They only had two unsuccessful launches after which the third was a success. This goes to show the ambition of the nation and what it can achieve.
12The future is bright
China has revealed its plans to launch at least three more Long March 5B rockets between 2021 and 2022. These rockets will be launched with modules for the country’s planned space station, so more uncontrolled rocket re-entries are expected in the next couple of years. Hopefully, the country can find a way to land the debris better.
13China’s interest in space
China has always tried to catch up with the United States and other nations when it came to space programs. Officials from the Chinese space agency are working to become a space superpower alongside the US and Russia. With the successful launch of the 5B rocket, they have made their mark on space history.
14They have reached other milestones
China was the first nation to send a mission to the far side of the Moon in January 2019. They then began sharing photos from the part of our nearest neighbor we rarely see. This had never been done before by anyone else.
15Possible future moon landings
The final goal for the Chinese is to successfully land a man on the moon. This is why they are building their space station. Once it is up and running they will work on sending astronauts from Earth to their space station and then to the moon. This is one goal in the space race China is yet to conquer.
