    Just curious as to what you fellas think. Not going political or anything like that please. Just find it strange that now there's another chinese rocket falling and again the US is in the debris path so they say. Some different times we're living in....

    I think the whole planet is in the debris path, they have a guess we're it's going to re entry, but they are just guessing no one really knows.
    We ( humans) got so much space junk floating around in orbit it's nuts.

    Chinese officials said there is nothing to worry about. Are you trying to say they would lie?

    Hahaha, the Hawk special! Store them a few years, say you've been a rocket parts dealer since day one, and make thousands if not millions. Screenshot_20210508-212425_Chrome.jpg

    Its just lucky that most of the trash floating around up there burns up coming back in, but big chunks , like Skylab got enough mass to make it all the way to ground level.
    This thing Is big as well.
    Put your hard hat on.

    Nothing strange about it. The orbital path varied from 41.5 degrees north to 41.5 degrees south. That put all of Africa in the debris path as well as almost all of South America and even China itself in the path. Nothing to see here folks. Move along......

    So many hardware and automotive stores are packed-full of Chinese tools, appliances, parts, etc, etc. The sad part is, many of those stores would not survive if they did not stock and sell Made in China "stuff". Slowly but surely, piece by piece, they are wrapping us around their finger!
