Pentagon: We are tracking the trajectory of the Chinese missile out of control

The US Department of Defense (Pentagon) said, Wednesday, that it is following the uncontrolled landing path of the out-of-control "Long March-5BY2" missile carrying the Chinese space station unit into orbit last week.

Defense Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters that the missile debris is expected to return to Earth "somewhere" on Saturday, and that the US Space Command said "almost the entire body of the missile" remains intact.

He added, "It is too early to know where he will fall."

According to the American "Axios" website, this is not the first time that a rocket or spacecraft launched by the Chinese Space Agency has descended to Earth in an uncontrolled way.
