Part of rocket makes uncontrolled re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere


ISRO mentioned that the cryogenic higher stage of the LVM3 M4 launch automobile makes an uncontrollable entry into Earth’s orbit.

The cryogenic higher stage of the LVM3 M4 launch automobile, which efficiently injected the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft into the supposed orbit on July 14 this yr, made an uncontrolled re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere, the ISRO mentioned.

This rocket physique was half of the LVM-3 M4 launch automobile, it mentioned.

It re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere round 14:42 IST on Wednesday.

“The probable impact point was predicted over the North Pacific Ocean. The final ground track did not pass over India,” the Indian Space Research Organisation mentioned in an announcement.

The re-entry of the rocket physique befell inside 124 days of its launch. The post-mission orbital lifetime of the LVM3 M4 cryogenic higher stage is, thus, absolutely compliant with the “25-year rule” for low-Earth orbit objects as really useful by the Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IADC), ISRO mentioned.

Post Chandrayaan-3 injection, the higher stage had additionally undergone “passivation” to take away all residual propellant and power sources to minimise the dangers of unintended explosions as per the house particles mitigation pointers prescribed by the United Nations and IADC, it was said.

“Passivation and post-mission disposal of this rocket body in adherence to the internationally accepted guidelines once again reaffirms India’s commitment to preserve the long-term sustainability of outer space activities,” the ISRO added.
