Report: Rocket Launched By China May Land In Abuja This Weekend - Experts Warn by Asuneblog(m): 11:32pm On May 08
A rocket launched by China is set to crash back to earth this weekend, a report by NBC news says.

The rocket launched by the Republic of China in April 2021, is expected to re-enter the earth's atmosphere between late Saturday, May 8, to early Sunday, May 9, according to experts and officials.

According to the report, the 98-foot-long 5B piece of rocket is tumbling through space in an uncontrolled orbit at 18,000 miles per hour after blasting off last month carrying part of the country's new space station.

As stated in the report, the rocket's lack of control can only mean experts aren't sure the exact location it will come down.

However, Scientists say the risk of it killing anyone after it re-enters the earth's atmosphere is small but not impossible.

Also, the report stated that there is a tiny chance the debris might hit the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja, New York, Los Angeles, Madrid, Rio de janeiro, or Beijing.
