No one knows exactly when debris from a Chinese rocket will fall to Earth



 The remains of a Chinese rocket could fall to Earth in the next few days, if not in the next few hours. In reality, no one knows exactly when or where.

Since China launched the Wentian module into space on July 24, it has spent less than a week in orbit. But part of the body of the B5 rocket will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, researchers at The Aerospace Corporation reported.

The corporation specified that it is still too early to determine a significant waste footprint. Although most of it is expected to burn, large chunks will survive the fiery passage.

The Center for Orbital Reentry and Debris Studies of The Aerospace Corporation predicts that it could be between 5.5 and 9.9 tons.

China is convinced that they will fall into the ocean, and the margin for error is getting smaller as we get closer to the event.
