The fall of the first stage of the Chinese rocket was captured on video

As you know, side accelerators and the first stages of rockets do not gain the first cosmic velocity and after separation fall to the Earth. Therefore, spaceports usually tend to build on the coast, in the hope that all rocket debris will fall into the ocean. Another solution to the problem: the placement of launch centers in uninhabited (desert) areas.

However, not all spaceports comply with this rule. As an example, China. Three of the four main launch centers of the Middle Kingdom are located in the interior of the country. This is a kind of legacy of the Cold War, when China was afraid of attacks by superpowers and tried to place its strategic objects as far as possible from the borders.

The saddest record of the trio of “internal” Chinese launch centers belongs to the Sichang Cosmodrome.In 1996, the rocket launched from it fell on a neighboring village, killing 6 people according to official data. Fortunately, this tragedy did not happen again. Unfortunately, the first stages and boosters of rockets launched from Sichan continue to fall near settlements.

The Chinese authorities say they are taking all precautionary measures and evacuating residents from potentially dangerous areas. But videos regularly appear on social networks, where you can see debris falling dangerously close to human settlements. At the same time, judging by the records, local residents perceive what is happening as a show, taking wreckage on video and making family selfie with them.
Another similar incident occurred after the launch of the Long March 2C rocket on June 27. She successfully launched into space a pair of satellites designed to develop new technologies for remote sensing of the Earth. The first stage of the rocket fell near the village of Fuquan, Guizhou Province. Judging by the frames published in social networks, there is a sufficient amount of fuel on board (it works on a mixture of diazo tetroxide and asymmetric dimethyl hydrazine) to produce a powerful explosion.Fortunately, this time, too, there were no human victims.
