So apparently there is a used space station that China put up some years ago, due to burn up falling to earth. Some debris may actually make it all the way down. So after all the comments I have read over the years referring to some parts as "junk from China", this will actually be space junk from China!

I hope I get this correct but you have a better chance of winning the lottery than being hit by this particulars piece of Chinese junk.

I wouldn't mind getting hit by a piece of Chinese space junk... It would certainly be a way for my grandkids to remember me...

"Ya know that guy who got whacked by the chinese space junk??? That was my poppa!"

With my luck, it would probably be the black water tank ...

When they were telling the story on the news, they talked about a woman being hit by a 3" piece of metal from space years ago and she wasn't hurt. It brings to mind the video of an asteroid crashing down in Russia a few years ago. It created a very bright light and made the noise of an explosion when it landed.

We just finished building a bridge made from Chinese steel. Grand opening is March 30 but they will not permit cars at the inauguration. BTW it already has stress cracks which the designer tried to hide with plates held in place by dozens of bolts.
If I was to put a patch on an aircraft panel using that many holes I don't think the patch or the panel would last long.

I'll do some digging around in some old tool boxes.
I'm sure there is some Chinese sockets somewhere that I don't use.
Heat one up till it turns dark blue and wing it at you.
Chinese space chuck hit you!
You will be famous.
I'll lie and you agree and everything will work out.
