Chinese rocket debris to hit the earth surface on weekend

• Out of Control debris from a large Chinese rocket will enter the earth’s atmosphere this weekend but since space debris has hit the Earth’s surface on previous occasions too without posing a threat to life or security, there is no reason to panic.

• Most of the debris burns in the Earth’s atmosphere before having the chance to crash into its surface but at time the pieces of a large object end up hitting the earth.

• The US Space Command is said to be tracking the rocket’s trajectory. “The exact location where the debris is going to land is difficult to determine until it is a few hours away due to the speed in which it is travelling”, said Mike Howard from Defense Department

• According to an astrophysicist the risk that there will be some damage or that it would hit someone is small but not negligible, it could happen.
