The uncontrolled Chinese rocket part will land on Saturday


A large part of the rocket launched from China's first permanent space station could hit Earth on Saturday morning.

It is feared that it could hit anywhere in the world. This is the first time China has indirectly opened its mouth on the issue.

According to the report, Western countries are spreading rumors that the rocket is "uncontrolled" and could cause damage, "unwarranted propaganda." A very small part can fall on land, in an area far away from human activity or in the sea.

McDowell, a member of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said the 21-tonne part of the rocket could shatter into pieces after re-entering the Earth, as seen in the case of a small plane crash.

The 21-ton rocket, called the Long March Five B, went out of control after being recently launched from China. Commonly abandoned rockets are destroyed in a controlled manner by friction in the Earth's atmosphere. But the Chinese rocket part did not do much.

That's why the 100-foot-long core is rushing toward Earth. The U.S. Defense Department said Tuesday that part of the rocket will land on Saturday.

It cannot be said before it enters the earth, where it will hit. The Aerospace Corporation says the wreckage of the rocket could hit the Pacific Ocean near the equator, crossing western cities in the United States.
