Beware … The Long March 5 Rocket has departed from the space station in Beijing, China. A fast-moving 1-ton rocket could land anywhere on Saturday or Sunday.
According to the US Department of Defense, experts say that the body of the Chinese rocket could land on Saturday or Sunday. It is difficult to predict where the uncontrollable Chinese rocket will land.
According to the Pentagon, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has said that the rocket is expected to land at sea or some other place. “Hopefully, no one will be harmed where the rocket landed.
We have the potential to do a lot, but we won’t.” Lloyd Austin said there were no plans to shoot down China’s unmanned rocket.
According to media reports, US experts say that the rocket, which is 100 feet long and 16 feet wide, is rapidly moving towards the ground.
The rocket weighs 1 ton (thousand kilograms). China took the first step in building its own space station last month, launching its crew module into space. The rocket went out of control as it returned to Earth.
