Long March-5B rocket
China’s most powerful Long March-5B rocket falls
to earth on Saturday over the Indian Ocean.
NASA said that
Beijing didn’t share the specific orbital data required to understand where debris may fall.
The 5B rocket was more than 1.8-million-pound heavy, launched on 24 July from Wenchang territory to deliver China's first permanent space station, Tiangong.
China's manned space agency said on Saturday that much of the final phase of the Long March-5B rocket was used up after going into the atmosphere.

The US Space Force announced that a Long March-5B rocket appeared over the Indian Ocean at around 12:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Saturday.
The Chinese embassy located in Washington couldn’t instantly be reached for opinion. At the start of this week, China said it would monitor the debris carefully.

The Tiangong 1, China's 1st space station, fell in 2016 at the Pacific Ocean after Beijing was confirmed to be spiraling out of control.
In 2007, China got condemnation after using a missile to demolish outdated weather satellite, generating a debris area according to governments that could endanger other satellites.
Last year, NASA blamed China for being unclear after China remained silent on the projected debris trajectory and re-entry window for its Long March rocket's final flight.
