Last week the Tianhe modules exploded in space. China used a massive core of a Chinese rocket to launch the first leg of its space station. It is reported that the core of Long March 5B will make the re-entry to the earth.
It is projected that sometime in the next week, the earth will experience this re-entry. And it is estimated that this uncontrolled re-entry will target the inhabited area. It is estimated that a roughly 100-foot object is orbiting the earth every 90 minutes. And it zips past north of New York, Beijing and as far south as New Zealand.
It is the threat that it will land on the inhabited area. But there are also chances that it will splash in one of the world’s oceans or an isolated area.
A space flight observer, Jonathan McDowell, said that since 1990 there had been no cases of any spacecraft over ten tons that have been purposely left in orbit to re-enter in an uncontrolled way.
It is also reported that the empty rocket core stage is about 21 metric tons in mass. McDowell said that it was not theoretically sound when the last time launched a Long March 5 B rocket, they have done with a big long rod of metal flying through the sky, which damaged several buildings in the Ivory Coast.
On the southern island province of Hainan, from the Wenchang launch center the Tianhe or Heavenly Harmony module exploded in the Long March 5B rocket. The payload is the primary component of its lasting space station.
The Chinese space program become a great source of national pride. The top citizen and premier Li Keqiang military leaders viewed the launch of Long March 5B live from the control center in Beijing.
