China successfully launched satellites to orbit last week but pieces of the country's rocket fell in the rural Sichuan province, crushing buildings in a video shared widely on social media. The government's Long March 3B rocket launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center on Friday evening. Unlike U.S. launch pads, which are typically located along coastlines so rockets fly over water, Xichang is located deep inland, which means the rocket flies directly over villages in rural China.
