According to scientists, right now the route of this satellite is passing through Chile, New Zealand, New York, Madrid, Beijing. In such a situation, it is feared that its debris may also fall at one of these places. Although a large part of it is expected to burn with friction while coming to the earth, if it falls in the populated part, it can cause a lot of havoc. Even earlier in May 2020, the main part of the Chinese rocket Long March 5B went out of control and fell into the Atlantic Ocean via Los Angeles and New York in the United States, causing a major accident.

This will be the Chinese space station
It is noteworthy that China wants to build its own space station in space. At present, only Russia and the United States have been able to do such complex work. This proposed space station in China is named Tianhe which means enjoyment of heaven. The size of this station will be like English T and it will be able to park 3 spacecroft at a time. There will be a main module in the middle while there will be labs used as labs on either side. Each of its modules will weigh about 20 tons. This space station will be installed at an altitude of 340 to 450 kilometers in the lower orbit of the Earth.
