Mystery Deepens as China Denies Owning Space Junk Set to Collide With the Moon
By: April Carson
On Monday, China denied responsibility for a rocket set to strike the Moon, following claims that it was from Beijing's lunar exploration program and most likely came from space.
Early this morning, reports indicated that the junk was set to collide with the Moon within hours. However, China has since denied these claims saying it had nothing to do with it and is in no way responsible for the impending crash.
The oddity that keeps flying over Los Angeles is believed to be a piece of a SpaceX rocket that launched seven years ago and was left in space after completing its purpose.
But a lack of clear ownership is making it difficult for space agencies to track the junk and monitor its progress.
It is speculated to be the booster for the Chang'e 5-T1, which was launched in 2014 as part of China's lunar exploration initiative.
On March 4, the rocket is expected to hit the moon's far side. China's foreign ministry rejected this claim Monday, saying that the booster in question had "safely entered the Earth's atmosphere and was completely burned up."
"Beijing" "carefully maintains long-term space activity sustainability," a regular news conference spokesperson said.
China has ambitious plans to establish itself as a space superpower, and it took a significant step last year with the dispatch of the world's first space station with crewed missions.
The People's Republic of China has invested billions of dollars into its military-led space program and aims to eventually send humans to the Moon.
"Beijing" "says the world's second-largest economy spends about $2 billion a year on its civil space program, although outside observers say it may be closer to $5 billion annually.
In a statement , China's Manned Space Engineering Office said they "carefully maintain long-term space activity sustainability," and only five objects from the launch remain in orbit.
However, they have not clarified whether the junk will hit Earth or how much is left.
Manned missions to the Moon are mostly likely many years away, but China's ambitious plans could change that.
"China has the single most ambitious space program on the planet at the moment," said Dr. Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.
