Rocket debris after the launch of the Chinese space station falls back to Earth – but where?

A large Chinese rocket should make an uncontrolled entry back into the Earth’s atmosphere, but it is not yet clear exactly where and when the debris will collide with our planet.

China’s Long March 5B rocket “unpredictably” crashes back to Earth after the launch of part of China’s new T-shaped space station on Thursday local time in Wenchang, SpaceNews reported. The Tianhe Space Station module, weighing 22.5 metric tons, is in correct orbit after separating as planned from the rocket’s main stage, which is expected to re-enter the atmosphere in a few days or about a week.
