These rockets weighing between 5 and 20 tons launch satellites into space and keep them there. Sometimes some rockets or their broken parts are attracted by Earth’s gravity and fall somewhere on Earth. In that way, scientists have predicted that the spare parts of the rocket sent by China will fall on the earth. They also said that it may fall in the Indian Ocean or the Indian border. In this situation, many people who were surprised to see the sudden appearance of light flames in space took pictures on their cell phones and posted them on social media.
