There are varying estimates on where China’s Long March 5B rocket will land, including the Southeastern US, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, Peru, Ecuador Colombia, Venezuela, parts of Southern Europe, much of Northern and Central Africa, the Middle East, Southern India and Australia.
One Australian Twitter user waiting for the rocket to touch down wrote: “If #ChineseRocket #LongMarch5B debris lands on us at Mother’s Day lunch, I’m gonna be peeved.”
Another wrote: “Waiter, there’s a #ChineseRocket in my soup.”
One more said: “So, is it too early to put on my ‘I survived the Chinese rocket reentry’ t-shirt?”
One Twitter user wrote: “Flat-Earthers must be having a hard time watching the live feed of the rocket looping around the planet right now.”
Another said: “Earth in a nutshell: made by China – Destroyed by China.”
One adamant fan said: “Omg please keep Taylor Swift safe from the #ChineseRocket she’s a national treasure.”

One more user said: “Why am I tracking the #ChineseRocket like I’m tracking an Amazon order.”
Another person tweeted: “That movie Armageddon came out all the way back in 1998. Why don’t we have a way of blowing up the #ChineseRocket before it crashes onto the planet?”

It’s mission was to carry into orbit a module containing living quarters for a future Chinese space station.
The rocket orbits the Earth roughly once every 90 minutes and at time of writing should be heading towards the Indian ocean moving West to East.
