US recovers sensors from Chinese balloon | North America

While the Senate is protesting the scant information it has received from the White House about the four objects shot down in the past ten days by the US Air Force, the military has claimed to have recovered “significant debris from the site [onde o primeiro balão foi abatido]including all identified priority sensors and electronic components’.

According to the Pentagon, this first balloon, which was shot down on February 4 over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South Carolina, and which Washington identified as Chinese (which China admitted, saying it was a political aircraft deflected by winds), was 60 meters high and had a base the size of three buses. The FBI is already examining the recovered components and sensors – which Washington says were used to spy on sensitive military installations.
