Beware the Falling Rocket From Space

Debris from China's Long March 5B rocket, which launched into space last week, is set to come crashing to Earth this weekend. The concern scientists have is that it's believed to be an "uncontrolled" re-entry and there's no indication yet on where on the planet it could strike. This isn't the first time remnants of China's rockets have caused damage during their missions. The U.S. is calling for "responsible space behavior" to mitigate space debris accidents from occurring.
