China Still Drops Space Junk On People

Metal From "Outer Space" Falls Down on Chinese Villages, Gizmodo

"The Chang'e II is the country's second-ever lunar orbiter--something that cost the country the equivalent of $134 million. It's taking five days to travel to the moon and will spend around six months observing it with its hi-res cameras, mapping it from a distance of around 15km so they can accurately land spacecraft in the future. Let's hope they're more accurate with shedding boosters in the future too, to keep the fatality rate at zero for rocket-based deaths."
