SEOUL, May 9 (Yonhap) -- Debris from a Chinese space rocket fell into the Indian Ocean on Sunday, the science ministry said.
Remnants of the Long March 5B rocket landed in waters southeast of India around 11:30 a.m., the ministry said, citing data from the U.S.-based Combined Space Operations Center.
The rocket was launched last week carrying a module of China's first permanent space station into orbit. But a large piece of debris plunged back in an uncontrolled reentry.
