An Out-of-Control Chinese Rocket Is Going to Crash Into Earth Tomorrow

• by Becky Ferreira

Fragments of a gigantic Chinese rocket are expected to fall to Earth this weekend during an uncontrolled reentry from space, potentially exposing people to dangerous falling debris, though the risk of anybody getting hurt is low.

The rocket parts will impact Earth at a location with a latitude between New York City in the north end and New Zealand in the south, on Saturday, July 30, at 7:24 p.m. UTC time (3:24 p.m. EST) according to the Aerospace Corporation, which has been tracking the debris. The measurement has an error margin of plus or minus seven hours.
