Once again, China has scared the world and the Arabs are all in on this one. You see, China launched a rocket into space and has officially gone rogue. The rocket carried the core module out of China’s space station into low Earth orbit last week. However, after the mission was completed, it seems that the rocket fell into another orbit that could lead it plunging towards the Earth, falling in an unpredictable and random trajectory. This incident of the Chinese rocket has set the stage as one of the largest and uncontrolled re-entries. As it falls and reenters the atmosphere, parts of it might burn up and melt, but that doesn’t stop some parts of it from hitting the Earth. Meanwhile, the memes about this ongoing incident have gone viral all over the internet, so check them out below!
Long March 5B Rocket
The rocket’s current speed has been recorded moving at 27,000 km/h, a speed so extreme to the point that any slight change in its movement could change its path. Weighing at 21 tons, and traveling at a remarkable speed, the rocket has been completing a trip around the world every 90 minutes. Regardless of how dangerous the situation seems, the chance of it hitting a populated area is not high at the moment. As 75% of the Earth is water, leaving a huge percent of the planet uninhabited, the aftermath would be similar to that of a small plane crash. Statistically speaking, we might be safe in the time being.
