China’s space program is like a rusty pickup truck owner rattling down the highway while bolts, nuts and muffler debris fall onto the road below at random intervals. We have once again proved that we are on par with each other in the galaxy.
In both cases, those who drive transportation are making progress at the expense of others. The Communist version of NASA has made a habit of disregarding the health and safety of everyone we share the planet we all live on today.
As Scientific American reported, a rocket known as the Chinese Long March 5B (CZ5B) launched on Halloween to take a laboratory to the Chinese space station. The 25-ton rocket that unburdened the lab has (by design) stopped and is now plummeting toward Earth.
Sometime on Friday or Saturday, someone in an as-yet-unknown location, depending on how re-entry happens, will have the wreckage of a Chinese rocket CZ5B landing on, near, or around them. This may come as a big surprise.
If that advance warning sounds vague, it’s because it’s about as specific as the world’s cleverest rocket scientists can be when space junk is flying toward Earth out of control.
“Our latest forecast #CZ5B Rocket body re-entry is 11:20 UTC ± 3 hours on November 4, 2022,” the Aerospace Corporation tweeted. “Reentry will occur along one of the ground tracks shown here. It is still too early to identify meaningful debris footprints.”

As Aerospace Corporation’s models suggest, CZ5B’s potential impact area is immense and includes parts of the United States, Latin America, Africa, India, Australia, and China, as well as numerous marine crash sites.
While Christians no doubt pray that debris that reaches Earth lands in the ocean, scientists are working to remind people that the chances of someone being harmed are extremely small.
First of all, most rockets disintegrate on re-entry, and the wreckage reaches the surface in relatively small pieces.
According to Scientific America’s calculations, the chances of a human being being hit by this debris are at least 1 in 230. The odds of an individual being attacked are, at worst, he is 1 in 6 trillion.
This will offer little consolation to people in Ivory Coast, whose villages have been showered with falling Chinese space junk debris, and in Borneo, larger debris is likely to hit villages after another Chinese rocket re-entry. Became.
China has previously spoken out about its swift and lax handling of how to protect Earth from the aftermath of a launch, and the communist country’s nasty habit of not letting the rest of the world know that falling space debris is something else. It has been condemned by the international space community. possibility.
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in 2021, after another Chinese rocket crash, that “all space nations should follow established best practices and share this kind of information proactively to ensure potential “This is essential for the responsible use of space and the safety of people on Earth.”
China has routinely shied away from responsibility, saying that falling space debris is common among countries involved in space exploration.
This claim is as misleading as CZ5B is misunderstood. Some countries face the challenge of falling rockets and space debris, but are taking steps to mitigate the damage. These steps range from directing the rocket so that it falls predictably into place in the ocean, to equipping the rocket with enough power to affect its controlled re-entry. .
