New Delhi, 7 May: Neighboring China (China), which is trying to regain its kingship on the ground as well as in space, has suffered a huge setback. On April 29, China launched a 21-tonne giant rocket named Long March 5B, but it went out of control after going into space. According to scientists, the debris of this uncontrolled rocket may hit the Earth in the early morning on May 8.
On this uncontrolled rocket of China, the US Ministry of Defense said that we have tracked it. According to satellite trackers, it is 100 feet long and 16 feet wide. Howard-based astronomer Jonathan McDowell has told Reuters that the satellite currently has its route through New York, Madrid, Beijing to the north and south to Chile and New Zealand. This uncontrolled rocket can fall anywhere in this range.

Apart from this, Jonathan McDowell has also told that the majority of this Chinese rocket will be destroyed before it gets closer to the earth, but if some part falls in the populated area then it can cause huge destruction. According to the satellite tracker, currently this rocket is moving towards the earth at a speed of four miles per second.
Currently, this Chinese rocket is circling around the Earth in a low-Earth orbit. The neighboring country left its ambitious rocket on April 29 to build its Tianhe Space Station.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time when the rocket of neighboring country China has gone unchecked in space. Even before this, the main part of the March 5B rocket launched last year was uncontrolled. Its debris was found in the Atlantic Ocean passing over the cities of Los Angeles and New York in the US.
