Rocket debris from a space station launch in China falls back to Earth – but where?



A large Chinese rocket is set to make an uncontrolled return to Earth’s atmosphere, but it is not yet clear exactly where and when the wreckage will hit our planet.

China’s Long March 5B rocket “unpredictably” crashed back to Earth after part of the new T-shaped Chinese space station was launched on Thursday local time in Wenchang, according to SpaceNews. The 22.5-metric tonne module of the Tianhe space station is in proper orbit after separating, as planned, from the rocket’s main stage, which is now expected to re-enter in a few days or about a week.
