Another ‘out-of-control’ Chinese rocket falling to Earth

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • Another out-of-control Chinese rocket is plummeting toward Earth.
  • Debris from the 21-ton Long March 5B rocket could fail to burn up in the atmosphere, leading to concerns that it could smash into a populated area.
  • Last year, one of China’s rockets broke up on re-entry above the Indian Ocean.

Another out-of-control Chinese rocket, which was launched to space on Sunday, is plummeting toward Earth sparking concerns.

Experts fear that the debris of a 21-ton Long March 5B rocket may fail to burn up as it makes its re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere. It could plummet to an uncertain location and at a great speed.

The Long March 5B was carrying a solar-powered new lab as an addition to China’s Tiangong Space Station.

The chances of rocket debris hitting a populated area are very low, but experts still believe that China is taking an unnecessary risk — a risk that’s increased in recent years.

Last year, China’s spacecraft showered debris over the Indian Ocean near the Maldives.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, at the time, accused China of ‘failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris,’ including lowering risks during re-entry and being transparent about operations.

Nelson released a statement saying: “Spacefaring nations must minimize the risks to people and property on Earth of re-entries of space objects and maximize transparency regarding those operations. It is clear that China is failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris.”

According to scientists, the problem with China’s rockets can be rooted in the country’s risky design of its launch process.

Discarded rocket stages typically re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere soon after launch, normally over water, and don’t soar into orbit. The Long March 5B rocket, however, goes into orbit. 

China has denied any irresponsibility, with its Foreign Ministry saying the possibility of damage to anything or anyone on the land is ‘extremely low’.

In 2020, debris from the first Long March 5B fell on Ivory Coast, causing damage to several buildings. No one was reportedly injured.

  1. If the answers you recieved for the question on which ship sank on April 15th 1912 are truly correct, This country is in a very sorry and sad state and it’s too late to save it. Our school system has failed along with our government. I just thank God our founding fathers are not here to witness the insanity we have unleashed. So in parting all that needs to be said is ” Say Goodnight Gracy”! And if you cant remember where that phrase started, you too are lost.

    1. That comes from George Burns, we are not all products of the current failed school/indoctrination system, and I agree, it definitely is “Goodnight Gracie” time !!!

  2. unfortunately there’s not a set of intact testicles in this whole country. The Chinese and north Koreans were quick to negotiate when Ike came to office in 1952. Like McArthur, he would have nuked the illegitimi to end the crap they were pulling including Russian pilots manning their mig 15’s.

  3. As Gen McArthur had said
    “Old Soldiers Never Die
    But They Fades Away”

    The new soldiers of today where were they?

  4. I am an 88 year old retired Air Force pilot who fought against the Chinese in North Korea in 1952, and also in Vietnam/Laos in 1966-68. Their military might was not nearly as powerful and as well equipped as they are today. The Chinese political machine took over China in 1949, and has since made highly significant steps to becoming a world power. Their communist government has not enabled, but directed, massive military strength, highly modern study of medical science, while stringently controlling what their citizens can and cannot do. They are bound currently on becoming a world power, even greater than the USA and Russia. I view the Chinese goals in the very near future to be the development of an extremely deadly disease for which there is no known cure. Then, using missiles/rockets which could be loaded with containers holding sufficient quantities of the bacteria of the new disease and set to become “uncontrollable” over selected geographical locations and dispersing the deadly bacteria on a country, say, like the USA, could inflict a deadly disease over such wide areas that perhaps millions could die almost instantly. By the time medical experts in the USA could forget their political oppositions against each other, this deadly bacteria could easily kill millions of citizens. Our political “experts” from both major parties would probably be so disorganized that little or no help could be resultant from our vast sources of medical and/or scientific research. No matter how it is observed, our Nation no longer recognized as a major power and leading financial giant. We are indeed penetrable, with Biden and his minions making further concessions daily to Russia and China. The Biden administration has thus far damned near totally destroyed our Government, and they will continue to do so, for that is how the Democratic Party has set its goals – from a Democracy to a Socialistic State and the on to a Communist State. Who is really at fault for this catastrophe we are seeing today? Is it you? Did you vote for Democratic candidates for office? If so, thank yourself for what the United States has now become. The longer Democrats control our Government, the longer it will be before the Republicans can stop this downslide and regain what the Democrats have destroyed or tried to destroy. The life of the USA is in your hands.

    1. Sad but true. Lack of education has led to this debacle. Dictatorship is the only answer to a society that has no concept of how hard it is to develop an understanding of how rare and precious freedom is.
      Instead we ignore the threat and watch the next episode of dancing with the stars

  5. to Mr Robert Altee, Amen, brother!!! Thank you for your service. If the chinks, russians, koreans and democrats don’t get me i’m planning on GOD’s rapture.

  6. Thank you Mr. Altee, Not only for your service to our country, but for telling it like it is! We need more people to speak out against this rogue government and tell people what they need to hear. The demonrat propaganda machine is working over time to destroy our country and our way of life. God bless you sir, keep up your good work!
