(RepublicanDaily.org) – Chinese activities are frequently a cause for international concern. The COVID-19 pandemic can provide ample evidence of that. Had the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) not deceived the world about the virus in the months after it first emerged, who knows how many lives could have been saved?
That’s not the only way in which the Chinese regime is posing risks to the rest of the world. On April 28, China fired a rocket into orbit as part of the effort to construct the nation’s first space station. However, the core of this rocket is now out of the control of the Chinese and orbiting earth at thousands of miles per hour.
The core of the rocket is expected to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere next week, though experts are not sure when. They also have no idea where it will land; it’s currently completing a lap of Earth every 90 minutes, reaching as far north as New York and as far south as New Zealand.
Chinese Long March 5B (NORAD-ID 48275) is expected to re-enter this week – NORSS' Monte Carlo results below provide a probabilistic re-entry time of approximately 1628UTC on 08/05/2021. The uncertainty window surrounding this currently spans several days. pic.twitter.com/rZIYHC7JbM

Scientists maintain the rocket will most likely end up in the ocean or on sparsely populated land, but there’s no way to know for sure. It appears all we can do is hope and pray disaster doesn’t strike.
