The officials of US and Russia refused to discuss to what the rocket was launched, but several experts outside the government said the rocket was part of an effort to bring some material to the space station. They said the body of the rocket was apparently separated from the part that contains the shipment to the space station and burned when it began to orbit.
Space debris expert who is also a director of the Union of Concerned Scientist, David Wright, told the Associated Press that "it is not something to worry about."
