They need to stop making rockets but they can if they want just don’t fly it it’s dangerous and also it’s not safe and people could die for that what if it hit were I was or anyone else was that’s in maryland or Texas or Hawaii and they said it landed in the Indian beach what if PEOPLE WERE IN THERE?! And they said shoot it down but that’s more harmful cause all the peace’s they shorted down is going to hit everywhere that’s not safe

It may seem like a big problem for junk to fall, but keeping more than 10000 pieces of junk in geosynchronous orbit is worse. As the moon circles the earth, it pulls the world's oceans and seas to a peak directly beneath it. Now think of the very inviscous, heat bloated atmosphere beneath it. An expanded atmosphere is less able to protect the earth from greater insolation. So now we might recall that every particle projects a gravitational field. I like to simplify the ergs system to pounds. The weight of an object in pounds equals its gravitational weight in pounds. So how much attraction does the space junk exert on the atmosphere? What is the consequence?

Remember the Skylab? Talking about hypocrisy! NASA built the Skylab without planning for its demise at its end-of-life. So much for space debris responsibility! In calibrating the issue, they ran into problems after problems. Finally, they let it fell out of the sky ... "while large chunks did go into the ocean, parts of the space station also littered populated areas of western Australia." And, they actually celebrated that day with parties and numerous commercial products/memorabilia! Now, they have the audacity to accuse China with its rocket debris? What a hypocrite!

Bottom line. That was complete disregard for the safety of humankind. Potentially could have killed innocents at any location on Earth. The whole purpose of the pursuit of scientific discovery is the betterment of humankind. You lose that essential element or put it in jeopardy you should have no place in the scientific arts.

I was 5 years old when NASA's Skylab came crashing down / performed an uncontrolled deorbiting maneuvere directly over my head (my feet stood on Australian soil at the time). My Mom told me all about it, pointed out it was MILES above us, and I ain't been scared of "falling satellites" for over forty years now!

If you don't allow it to land in the Ocean, where else would you let it land? Your dumpster truck?

What the United States should be worried about is that bullets hitting American people, rather than Chinese spacecraft hitting people. Just like the United States accused of Assange, first of all, smeared him for rape and made everyone hate him, and then the United States put forward its own high-sounding excuse. Old tricks!

That's why Indian covid19 surges, their knowledge only entitle them to fear to their US anchester words from generation to generation. It's glad to hear a great deal of indians could sleep well with their covid19 surges from the threads below. When they wake up, back to basic must be an important economy feature of India economy in the post-covid era (Modi visioned them during the climate leader summit lately). Great people with furious words and great visions ability.

Probably carrying more infectious diseases. Does anybody question the fact that China extremely hates India and India has been experiencing border battles with them for quite some time now. I mean these are huge nations we're talking about. If China wanted to really infect their neighbor they could do it without any fingerprint. Because they know for a fact if they were to attack world war III would probably start.. so one way to eliminate your predecessor is by infecting them.

Yeh love china. I too love China for being the worlds biggest air polluter, bringing species to extinction by overfishing, failing to contain the coronavirus and notify the world, taking away human rights and democracy from people in Hong Kong, exterminating Uyghurs and other muslim populations in China, sending prisoners to concentration camps, executing journalists who report on the autrocities commited by the CCP and uses (child) slavery to make cheap products..... Yea sure man, keep loving the fking country that's trying it's hardest to destroy the world.

The rocket delivered successfully a space station module. Part of the booster is scheduled to re-enter atmosphere uncontrolled after finishes its mission. It has hit indian ocean in the evening time. The space X rocket also crashed into one of the amerian inland farms this year in March. Nothing to worry about

Jesus Christ is coming back for his church. Don’t wait until it’s too late. This ship is about to sail folks! Hop on board while there is still time. God is going to judge the people and nations of the earth for their sins. Believe and trust in Jesus Christ because he died on the cross, was buried, and rose again the third day to save you from your sins. You don’t want to stand before God and not have trusted Jesus Christ as payment for your sins.
