With the craziness of the virus last year, some of you may have missed the story of how falling space junk from a Chinese rocket apparently narrowly missed a school as it fell back to earth in September of last year.
The story was carried in detail on Space.com:
A Chinese Long March 4B rocket successfully launched a new Earth-watching satellite Monday (Sep. 7) but the booster’s spent first stage narrowly missed a school when it fell back to Earth, witness videos show.
The Long March 4B rocket lifted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China, at 1:57 p.m. local time (1:57 a.m. EDT, 0557 GMT). It carried the powerful Gaofen 11 (02) Earth observation satellite, an optical observation satellite capable of returning high resolution images, showing features as smaller than 3 feet (1 meter) across.
This was the Twitter post from All about Space back in September:
