China’s out-of-control Long March 5B rocket has put the world on high alert.
Mice Howard, a Pentagon spokesperson, said they expected the rocket to land on earth on May 8 and the rocket route was being followed by the US Space Force.
Howard said they don’t know exactly where the rocket remains will land on earth, but that it can be predicted hours before the rocket lands on earth.
China used this rocket to launch parts of its space stations last week.
While it is reported that some of the parts burned in the atmosphere after the rocket got out of control, he is concerned that parts of the 22-ton rocket will fall in residential areas.

THIS WILL BE THE ONLY STATION IN SPACE AFTER 2024
China had fired this rocket as part of the space station project it started building in orbit.
There is already the International Space Station in space, where the United States, Canada, Japan, Russia and European countries work together.
However, the mission of the International Space Station will end in 2024. The Chinese Space Station will be the only space station in orbit after 2024.
The station, which will consist of a central module, two laboratory modules and a space telescope, will be roughly the same size as the Mir space station, which is no longer active in Russia, once completed.
Following the “Tienhi” module, the lab modules named “Vıntien” (Searching for the sky) and “Mıngtien” (Dreaming the sky) will be sent to space in 2022.
Once the main skeleton is formed, the space telescope named “Shuntian” will be added to the station as a separate module in subsequent years.
