The remnants of the Long March 5B missile are dangerously close to the ground. Collisions can occur along several paths covering large areas of land. This Saturday, the scheduled time to enter the atmosphere has passed at 3:22 AM GMT on May 9, or 5:22 AM in France on Sunday.
This Saturday, an astronomer from the US Astrophysical Center revealed his latest predictions in terms of possible paths of space debris. Free-fall flight hypotheses that take into account the vulnerability of the population on Earth in light of the populated space areas over which the remnants of the Chinese missile must be flying.
These forecasts specifically indicate 30 Rock – and Elon – are outside the target area. I apologize to everyone who was hoping for a more dramatic SNL tonight than usual. https://t.co/QiRkWXXc41

Without falling into the disaster scenario, the Chinese space agency clearly ruled out any danger from the danger, and it should be noted that potential paths cause rocket debris to pass a few kilometers from the Pyrenees Orientales. Two paths intersect in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula. An appreciation that gives more credit to the scene filmed Friday night through Saturday by a resident of Villeneuve-de-la-Raho in Pyrénées-Orientales.
However, the observed event indicates the destruction of the first debris as it passed through the atmosphere. It remains to be seen whether a larger and heavier projectile will pass the barrier …
In a message sent to Twitter on Friday evening, the Aerospace Corporation indicated that the Center for Orbital Debris and Return Studies (CORDS) expects this Long March rocket to return to the atmosphere in the 4 p.m. range around 4:19. Morning GMT Sunday (6:19 am in France). This Saturday, the space agency again revised the schedule to 3:22 GMT (5:22).
A Long March 5B missile blasted off on April 29 from the Chinese island of Hainan. This rocket launcher carried the unmanned Tianhe unit into space that housed what would become the living spaces of a permanent Chinese space station.
