Where will it fall? Russian A5 “Angara” missile lost control and is heading for Earth

Published

The Russian space program relies heavily on the Angara family of rockets, which have been in development for over 20 years. A new test took place on December 27 with a flight to the Angara. It is this rocket that is now proving to be a problem.

Angara 5 failed, got out of control and headed for Earth. The worst part is that it is not possible to calculate when and where this rocket will land. Some possibilities have already been put forward, but there is still no certainty.


On December 27, the last test of the Angara rocket took place. This was intended to assess the development stage of this project, which was assigned a real burden, in order to simulate the end conditions.

Taking off from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in northwestern Russia, on December 27 it was supposed to test a new module in the design, known as the Perseus engine. According to Russian authorities launch was successfuleven with some mixing problems.

The fact is that the first stage worked only two seconds, already close to the final destination, before completely shutting down. This led to the fact that "Angara-5" was left without an engine, as a result of which it remained in low orbit. This will result in a loss of speed resulting in a fall.

Initial projections indicated that the re-entry would take place at 17:44, but this was later changed. The most recent forecast pointed to 20:17 (Lisbon time), which should happen over the Caspian Sea, between Europe and Asia.

The good news is that this reentry should destroy most of the Angara 5 rocket. Due to the weight of the rocket, which will be about four tons, some of them could reach Earth. As a rule, reinforced parts such as fuel tanks resist.

This is not a new situation, and already recently, the Chinese Long March 5B missile has caused some tension and a lot of speculation. In this case, he fell into the Indian Ocean without any problem.
