Debris from a Chinese rocket has disintegrated over the Indian Ocean in it’s final journey towards earth, China’s space agency has said.

The Long March 5B rocket, termed as ‘out of control’ is said to have likely landed at a location 72.47° East and 2.65° North.

US Space command in its statement said it could  “confirm the Chinese Long March-5b re-entered over the Arabian Peninsula”

There were fears that the debris could come down in an inhabited area but experts predicted that chances of this happening were so small since most of the Earth’s surface is covered by water.
