#DONTPANIC - There Is an Uncontrolled Space Station Module Heading to Earth

Officials are looking to the skies as the parts of massive Chinese rocket are expected to land somewhere on the planet this week. The 100-foot-tall, 22-ton rocket that launched a space station module from China last week is expected to soon make an uncontrolled re-entry to Earth.

While chances are high its remnants will hit the water, scientists warn there's always a chance they will hit land – and we’re literally talking anywhere. And worse? The last Long March 5B rocket left big pieces of metal flying through the sky, damaging several buildings on the Ivory Coast.

As for when it’s expected to “arrive?” This weekend. Still, astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell at the Astrophysics Center at Harvard University, tells CNN that the situation is "not the end of days."

....Unless it lands on your house. Unlikely...but possible.
