China space launch debris wrecks villagers' homes: Report
BEIJING (AFP) - Debris from the rocket carrying China's first moon rover plummeted to earth in a village more than 1,000km from the launch site, crashing into two homes, a report said on Tuesday.
The incident about nine minutes after the launch of the Chang'e-3 mission early Monday happened in Suining county in the central province of Hunan, which has been hit by space wreckage nearly 20 times, the Xiaoxiang Morning Post said.
"Three of the roof beams have crashed down on our house, and a big hole has been punched into our barn," one local resident told the paper.
"The huge sound scared the living daylights out of me," said another.
