Kathmandu:

A Chinese rocket that was used to send spy satellites into space on Saturday burned up in the skies of Nepal, the United States Naval Institute (USNI) reported, according to Epardafas.

A similar incident happened in Texas last week.

The Chang Zheng 2D “Long March” rocket re-entered the atmosphere on Saturday after more than 200 days in space and burned up in the skies of Nepal, according to astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell.

According to Epardafas, the four-ton piece of space debris was part of the China National Space Administration’s Y-65 mission. On July 29, it delivered three military electronic surveillance satellites from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in central China.

According to Mr McDowell, the Chinese rocket crashed into the sky over western Nepal.

“When they launched it, the plan was to have it go somewhere random in the world at some unpredictable time this year. It might not be a good plan or a very specific plan, but it is kind of a plan,” Jonathan McDowell told USNI News, according to Epardafas.

Similarly, a rocket launched from the same facility with a similar payload crashed over Texas on March 8 after dropping a trio of spy satellites meant to monitor the South China Sea.
