NASA made a claim about launching a rocket
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) previously said Beijing had not shared the specific trajectory information needed to know where possible debris might fall. Earlier this week, analysts said the rocket body would disintegrate as it plunged into the atmosphere, but They are so large that numerous portions will survive fires in the rain over an area about 2,000 km (1,240 mi) long and about 70 km (44 mi) wide. The Chinese embassy in Washington had no immediate comment.
