2021 Indian Challenger Limited review: A super-bagger for the rest of us

  2021 Indian Challenger Limited review: A super-bagger for the rest of us With 122 horsepower, sportbike brakes and a modern suspension, the Challenger looks to leave other American baggers in the stone age.That big, 108-cubic-inch, liquid-cooled engine goes a long way towards endearing this bike to me. Unlike most air-cooled baggers or tourers, which focus on torque at the expense of horsepower, this engine offers both: 122 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. That horsepower number is impressive, too, because the bike only revs to 6,500 rpm and, of course, revs equal power.

Debris from a Chinese rocket that had been hurtling back towards Earth has disintegrated over the Indian Ocean , China says. Ahead of the rocket 's re-entry there were fears that debris could come down in an inhabited area. US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said China had been negligent in letting the rocket fall out of orbit. However, space experts had predicted that the chances of anyone actually being hit by a piece of space junk were very small, not least because so much of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean , and huge land areas are uninhabited.

Remnants of China 's biggest rocket landed in the Indian Ocean on Sunday, with most of its components destroyed upon re-entry into the atmosphere, ending days of speculation over where the debris would hit but drawing U.S. criticism over lack of transparency. The coordinates given by Chinese state media, citing the China Manned Space Engineering Office, put the point of impact in the ocean , west of the Maldives archipelago. Debris from the Long March 5B has had some people looking warily skyward since it blasted off from China 's Hainan island on April 29, but the China Manned Space

The segment of several tons of Chinese rocket with uncontrolled trajectory has finally disintegrated Sunday above the Indian Ocean, ending to many speculations. Washington, however, emphasized the "imprudence" of the Chinese maneuver.

We now know when and where the remains of a Chinese rocket have landed. An important segment of the Chinese rocket has disintegrated over the Indian Ocean Sunday, announced the Chinese space agency, after strong speculation on where this 18-ton object could fall.

  First Ride: 2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 To paraphrase the immortal Marshall McLuhan, the motor is the motorcycle. It always has been. I mean, the name is a dead giveaway, right? Motor. Cycle. A motor in a cycle, or if you prefer a different emphasis, a cycle with a motor. Either way, the motor is the central character in the cycle. Contrast that with the automobile. It used to be called the motorcar back in the day to distinguish it from the horse-drawn carriage. But as soon as the internal combustion engine became commonplace the distinction was dropped.

A large segment of a Chinese rocket re-entered the Earth's atmosphere and disintegrated over the Indian Ocean on Sunday, the Chinese space agency said, following fevered speculation over where the 18-tonne object would come down. Officials in Beijing had said there was little risk from the The segment's descent matched predictions by some experts that any debris would have splashed down into the ocean , given that 70 percent of the planet is covered by water. But the uncontrolled re-entry of such a large object had sparked concerns about possible damage and casualties, despite there

The out-of-control Long March 5B rocket that so fascinated the Western media re-entered Earth’s atmosphere over the Indian Ocean and burned up, the Chinese space engineering agency has said. The much-covered piece of space junk from the Long March-5B Y2 rocket , which delivered part of China ’s space station into orbit on April 29, was expected to come down during the night between Saturday and Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters on Friday that the rocket was made from material designed to burn up on re-entry, and that most of the debris would disintegrate .

"According to monitoring and analysis, at 10:24 (02:24 GMT) on May 9, 2021, the first stage of the long-walking carrier rocket 5B entered the atmosphere," said Chinese space of inhabited space engineering In a statement, providing the coordinates of a point in the Indian Ocean near the Maldives. He said the majority of this segment has disintegrated and has been destroyed by entering the atmosphere.

Everyone can "relax"

the Chinese authorities had asserted that the uncontrolled return of the Long March 5b rocket segment, which had placed on April 29th on orbit the first module of its space station, presented little risk.

Space-Track, which used US military data, also confirmed this entry into the atmosphere. "All those who follow the back to school # Longmarch5b can relax. The rocket fell," he tweeted.

China ’s Long March-5B rocket has plummeted to Earth after an uncontrolled re-entry into the atmosphere. The remnants of China ’s largest rocket have plummeted back to Earth, plunging into the Indian ocean near the Maldives, according to Chinese state media, ending days of speculation over where the debris would hit. Most of the debris burned up in the atmosphere, it reported, citing the Chinese Manned Space Engineering office.

BEIJING: A large segment of a Chinese rocket re-entered the Earth's atmosphere and disintegrated over the Indian Ocean , state television reported Sunday citing the China Manned Space Engineering Office, following fevered speculation over where the 18-tonne object would come down. "After monitoring and analysis, at 10:24 (0224 GMT) on May 9, 2021, the last-stage wreckage of the Long March 5B Yao-2 launch vehicle has reentered the atmosphere, and the landing area is at 72.47° east longitude and 2.65° north latitude," CCTV said, providing coordinates for a point in the Indian Ocean .

"We believe that the rocket crashed into the Indian Ocean, but we are waiting for the official data of the @ 18SPCS," he added to another tweet, with reference to a US squadron responsible for the control of the 'space.

The arrival point of the segment corresponds to the forecasts of certain experts according to which there was a good chance that they are damaged at sea because the planet is covered with 70% water.

But an uncontrolled entry of an object of this size has aroused concerns about damage and possible victims, despite the low statistical probability.

An incorrectly planned launch, according to Washington

"The likelihood of causing damage to air activities or (persons, constructions and activities) on the ground is extremely low," said last week Wang Wenbin, a spokesman for the Chinese ministry Foreign Affairs.

The American Minister of Defense, Lloyd Austin, assured this week that his country had no intention of destroying the rocket. He had suggested that his launch had not been planned with enough care by China.

The remnants of China ’s rogue Long March 5B rocket reportedly landed in the Indian Ocean on Sunday -- late Saturday night Eastern U.S. time -- after its uncontrolled descent was tracked around the world over the past week. The approach of the rocket debris prompted emotions ranging from worry to concern to indifference -- with jokes cracked along the way. "We call it the Chinese rocket because it comes from CHINA ," comedians the Hodge Twins joked late Saturday. Space junk watchers had expected the core to come down sometime Saturday or Sunday, but couldn’t predict early on

Debris from a Chinese rocketfell back to Earth on Sunday, disintegrating over the Arabian Sea, according to Chinese state media. The reports cited the China Manned Space Engineering Office as saying that the point of impact was in the Indian Ocean southwest of India and Sri Lanka. The fragments are from the Long March-5b rocket that was used to launch the first module of China 's new space station last month. At 18 tons it is one of the largest items in decades to have undergone an uncontrolled reentry into the atmosphere. There had been fervent speculation about where it would

The American and European spatial authorities have closely followed the situation, trying to determine when and where it could fall back.

in 2020, debris from another long-walking rocket had crushed on villages in Côte d'Ivoire, causing damage, but without being injured.

"It was still imprudent"

to prevent such scenarios from happening again, experts recommended a new design of the long walk-5b rocket - which does not have the ability to control his orbit descent. .

"An entrance (in the atmosphere) above the ocean has always been statistically most likely," Tweeted Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer based in Harvard.

"It seems that China has won its bet (unless we have new debris from the Maldives). But it was still imprudent," he said.

China has been investing for a few decades billions of euros in its spatial program.

She had sent her first astronaut into space in 2003 and posed early 2019 a gear on the hidden face of the moon - a world first.

last year, moon samples had been reported and Beijing finalized Beidou, its satellite navigation system (competitor of the American GPS).

China plans to land a robot on Mars in the coming weeks. She also announced wanting to build a lunar base with Russia.
