Astronomers expected “Part of the waste” – On 27 Jan. AFP reported that Mr Bill Gray developer astronomers Project Pluto The software calculates the trajectory of space objects, which is widely used in space observing programs sponsored by United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
Launch of Falcon 9 carrying DSCOVR – The rocket was deployed in 2015 to put into orbit a NASA satellite called the DSCOVR. Since then, the second stage of the rocket, or booster, has been floating in what mathematicians call a chaotic orbit, astronomer Bill Gray told AFP. /Wikipedia/
The booster rocket part of the SpaceX-built Falcon 9 rocket blasted off during a mission to launch NASA’s DeepSpace Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite. Going into orbit to photograph the moon including an image of the back of the moon that cannot be seen from Earth in 2015
It is likely to hit the moon on March 4, 2022 at a speed of over 9,000 kilometers per hour. Gray called on astronomers to take part in an observation of the Falcon 9 rocket booster junk to confirm the calculation of the trajectory.

He is behind Project Pluto, software that allows for calculating the trajectory of asteroids and other objects in space and is used in NASA-financed space observation programs. SpaceX
This image shows the far side of the moon, illuminated by the sun, as it crosses between the DSCOVR spacecraft’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) camera and telescope, and the Earth – one million miles away. A week after the rocket stage whizzed close to the Moon, Gray observed it again and concluded it would crash into the Moon’s dark side on March 4 at more than 5,500 miles per hour (9,000 kilometers per hour).
