A rocket that was launched out of the ground by Musk SpaceX 7 years ago was about to hit the moon and self-destruct.

It is understood that in February 2015, SpaceX used a Falcon 9 rocket in Florida, the United States, to send meteorological satellites into space. By design, the remnants of the rocket should have fallen into the Earth's atmosphere, but the plan was lost due to insufficient fuel.

Expert Eric Berger said that the second stage of the rocket could not get rid of the Earth-Moon gravitational system, so it stayed in a chaotic orbit.

Space observers calculated thatThe second stage of the 4-ton Falcon 9 rocket will hit the moon in a few weeks at a speed of 2.58 km/s (about 9,288 km/h), expected on March 4 near the equator.

While it sounds a bit tragic, things don't seem to be very serious, in fact, the United States tried as early as 2009 to deliberately hit the moon with space junk, studying what might happen. Regarding the impact of spaceX rocket debris on the moon, NASA and Indian probes orbiting the moon may give the answer.
