The rocket that will crash on the moon is not from SpaceX, but from China | science and planet

It can be, especially in space. Several weeks after an astronomer announced that a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket crashed onto the lunar surface in early March, Bill Gray changed his mind on Sunday, several media outlets reported. It is now believed to be a tray of a Chinese launch pad.




The media eagerly came to Gray’s announcement that a staircase from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle from SpaceX, Elon Musk’s space company, would land on the Moon on March 4. The stair is said to be a relic of NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory launch in 2015.

However, an engineer at NASA’s famous Jet Propulsion Laboratory sounded the alarm and informed Gray Saturday morning that the Falcon’s trajectory is not too close to the moon. So it would be strange that the staircase was so close to falling onto the orb.

Gray did his homework again and found a new possible “comet”: a staircase from China’s Long March 3C that threw China’s Chang’e-5-T1 toward the moon in October 2014.

The launch time and trajectory correspond exactly to the orbit of the object that will collide with the Earth’s natural satellite.
