China 'wins gamble' after space rocket debris crash lands in Indian OceanRemnants of a Chinese rocket crashed into the Indian Ocean on Sunday in one of the largest uncontrolled re-entries of a spacecraft in history. No one is believed to have been injured, but the incident prompted NASA to criticise China for “failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris” and a lack of transparency. People in Jordan, Oman and Saudi Arabia reported spotting the debris in the dawn skies, which crashed into the ocean at 0224 GMT near the Maldives, according to coordinates reported by Chinese state media. China’s space agency said that most of the core section of its Long March 5B rocket burned up on re-entry into Earth's atmosphere. The news ended days of speculation about where debris from the rocket's core section, which was 30 metres long and 21 tonnes heavy, would land. Chinese state media had dismissed worries that the rocket was out of control and could cause damage as “Western hype”.
