    "The 20-ton Long March 5B rocket blasted off last month, carrying pieces of "Harmony of the Heavens," China’s planned space station. But something went wrong, and China lost control of it."

    "AeroSpace has it at around 10:02 p.m. CT/3:02 a.m. UTC, plus or minus two hours. Space-Track says 9:11 p.m. CT/2:11 a.m. UTC, plus or minus 60 minutes."

    (CNN) — Debris from an out-of-control Chinese rocket likely plunged into the Indian Ocean, just west of the Maldives, on Saturday night ET, China’s space agency said.

    Most of the huge Long March 5B rocket, however, burned up on reentering the atmosphere, the China Manned Space Engineering Office said in a post on WeChat.

    It was unclear if any debris had landed on the atoll nation.

    The US Space Command said the Long March 5B had reentered Earth over the Arabian Peninsula.

    The rocket, which is about 108 feet tall and weighs nearly 40,000 pounds, had launched a piece of a new Chinese space station into orbit on April 29. After its fuel was spent, the rocket had been left to hurtle through space uncontrolled until Earth’s gravity dragged it back to the ground."

    There must always be some heroic human target in order to keep the demos peacefully paying taxes , blind to the earthly chaos around them. ' Mars ' is the current carrot.
