Chinese Rocket to make uncontrolled re-entry in next 8 hours

  1. Looks like DFW is one of the many possible impact areas for this 18 ton piece of Chinese junk. Re-entry will happen anytime between now and the next 8 hours so it has about 6-8 possible tracks at the moment that span the northern and Southern hemispheres but DFW is along one of those tracks.

    Current estimate is re-entry at around 10pm our time out in the Pacific west of Peru. They have a 2 hour wiggle time on that, so the next two tracks will take it over (and quite possibly on) Florida, and the next orbit Texas across the Midwest to NY.

  3. Not sure how accurate this video is, but it’s interesting

     
  4. Apparently, it impacted the Indian Ocean near the Maldives. Lucked out.
     
  5. "Nyah! Nyah! Missed me!"
     
  6. This is going to get interesting if the next 5 or six of these planned rocket launches to finish their space station come back to Earth the same way. How long does the rest of the world just look on and lodge worthless verbal complaints?
     
  7. My guess is 5 or 6 times
     
  8. Huh? I thought that was a type of wine bottle opener...?

    show of hands here of anyone who is surprised something made in china is poorly engineered and not near "industry" specs?
     
  10. China gives 0 effs. Burn yak chips to mine Bitcoin, drop a few tons of space trash on the world, they’re winning!
     
  11. I thought this thread was about an amateur pron shoot.
