Along with it, Llyod Austin, US Defense Secretary, mentioned that “We are hopeful that it will land in a place where it won’t harm anyone.” He also said that “Hopefully in the ocean, or someplace like that.”

In addition to that, he also indirectly criticized China, stating that “there is a need to ensure that we take into account those kinds of things as we plan and operate.” On Tuesday, its core was revolving Earth around every ninety minutes at about the 27,600 km/h.

Its altitude is more than 300km. In addition to that, the US military gave the name to it that is 2021-035B. Due to its speed, it is quite difficult to predict the landing location when the atmosphere of the earth will drag it down. Moreover, McDowell mentioned that it would fall in the sea because the ocean covers 71% of the planet.

Not only this, but McDowell also said that few pieces of this rocket would survive re-entry. It will be equal to the scattering of a small plane crash over 100 miles.
