As previously reported, a researcher predicted that leftover debris from an old SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was circling the Earth in a very wide orbit and would crash into the moon on March 4. The same researcher has since claimed that the moon-bound rocket is in fact Chinese. According to the researcher and many others who confirmed the claim, it was from the Change 5-T1 lunar mission. So, what’s all the commotion about? To learn more, continue reading.
According to one astronomer in charge of Project Pluto, leftover pieces of a Chinese rocket will soon crash land on the moon. It is worth noting that an astronomer named Bill Gary previously stated that a SpaceX rocket would hit the moon, which he later canceled.
Following further investigation, Gary was able to confirm that the rocket responsible for the crash is, in fact, a Chinese rocket from the Chinese-led Chang’e 5-T1 lunar mission. Many other scientists have also gone on to confirm Gary’s claim.According to reports, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has rejected the claims. According to China’s monitoring, the upper stage of the rocket associated with the Chang’e-5 mission entered the Earth’s atmosphere and completely burned up, according to Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin. Readers should be aware that the Chang’e 5 mission is distinct from the Chang’e 5-T1 mission, which astronomers predict will crash land on the moon. Chang’e-5 T1 was a predecessor mission to Chang’e-5 that launched in 2020.
