Massive Chinese Rocket Will Make Uncontrolled Reentry Within Days
China successfully launched a key module of a new space station Thursday using the latest version of the Long March 5B heavy-lift booster. After completing its mission, the core stage of the rocket is still in orbit and could make an uncontrolled re-entry in the near term, according to SpaceNews.
The Long March 5B uses a core stage and four side boosters to launch heavy payloads into low Earth orbit. The rocket carries the payload up to orbit instead of separating at a lower altitude. This means that the Long March 5B booster is now uncontrollably tumbling back to Earth. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/massive-chinese-rocket-will-make-uncontrolled-reentry-within-days
