Bandung, West Java ● Sat, August 13 2022
The Indonesian, Malaysian, and Philippine publics were surprised by the news that the Long March 5B rocket booster fell into the Sulu Sea on July 31. This rocket booster was part of a Chinese Space Station module with a weight of 20 tonnes and a diameter of 30 meters.
According to observations, this booster crossed Sumatra, and some fragments of it crashed in an area stretching from Sanggau in West Kalimantan, before slamming into the Sulu Sea. This was confirmed by an eyewitness who saw the fragmentation of the rocket booster in Sarawak, Malaysia.
The space debris problem has become a very serious issue that needs to be solved for the safety of humans and space transportation. These problems align with the increasing number of space launch activities yearly. In 2020 alone, there were 114 launches carrying 1,300 satellites. With high demand for space missions in the future, we will likely see this phenomenon more frequently.
