According to the U.S. Special Command, the Pentagon is monitoring an “out-of-control” Chinese rocket that could fall to Earth in the next few days. The rocket is due to return to Earth’s atmosphere this weekend.

Despite the surveillance, the agency detailed that it does not know exactly where the rocket will descend because the images show the location 10 km above the Earth, where the object should pass through.

“Space Control Squadron will be offering daily updates to the rocket body’s location on Space-track.org beginning May 4,” the agency wrote on its official website.

Similarly, the Chinese used the rocket to launch part of their space station last week. While most space debris objects burn up in the atmosphere, the size of the rocket, 22 tons, has raised concerns that some of its larger pieces could re-enter the atmosphere and cause damage if they hit inhabited areas.

“Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, is tasked with providing 24/7 support to the Space Surveillance Network and tracks more than 27,000 man-made objects in space”.

“All debris can be potential threats to spaceflight safety and the space domain, and the 18th SPCS delivers front-line space defense and warnings to the global space community,” he added.

Michigan Tech Professor Claims He Was ‘Systematically Discriminated’ Against For 40 Years for Being White

"These racist sentiments contribute to a hostile work environment at Michigan Tech and are totally unwarranted. Proposal 41-21 implies that whites and the local population are racist. Racism is not limited to any particular group. I find this resolution particularly offensive because I, as a white male, have been systematically discriminated against for 40 years."
