This Saturday, the head of the Russian space agency Roskamos, Dmitry Rogozin, published the approximate coordinates of where the Chinese Long March-5B Y2 rocket would land: somewhere in the Pacific Ocean east of New Zealand.

On her Twitter account, Rozzin said, “Entry into existence in today’s environment: from 23:34 GMT on May 9 to 05:28 GMT on May 9,” Rogian wrote on his Twitter account. The call – a mean at the probability range – a point east of New Zealand’s Pacific Ocean, on May 9 at 02:54 GMT. “So everything points to the fact that it happens during this Sunday day.

Prior to Roscosmos he indicated that “some structures of the rocket’s central phase will not exist in condensed layers of the atmosphere, but non-combustible individual structural elements may reach the Earth’s surface.”

For its part, the Chinese Foreign Ministry described as “very unlikely” that the debris of the Long March-5B Y2 would cause any damage.

Successful launch turned into failures

The Long March-5B Y2, which drove the main module to build the future Chinese space station, was successfully launched into space last Thursday. However, difficulties arose shortly after launching the rocket’s main stage and inadvertently entered low Earth orbit.
