Unknown amount of Chinese space debris entered Earth’s atmosphere from free-falling rocket

01:41

Tonight, an unknown amount of Chinese space debris entered the Earth’s atmosphere, crashing into the Indian Ocean. Early videos surfaced on social media out of Malaysia showing what appear to be pieces of China’s most powerful rocket burning up on re-entry. The rocket launched last week took a new science lab to China’s Space Station. Once delivered, the rocket was in free fall. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said the risk to the general public was low, but NASA criticized China for the lack of transparency.
