However, due to the majority of water on the earth, the possibility of harm to humans by falling on its ground was lessened. Earlier it was feared to fall in Beijing, Madrid, or New York but due to its high speed, it was difficult to confirm the place of landing.
After being uncontrolled, the rocket started moving towards the earth and there was a possibility of damage when it hit the earth.
