Chinese space debris? Danger, watch out, it could fall on you! American space debris? It’s a cinematic, dazzling light show!

The US propaganda machine is performing its usual skilful manipulations over a Chinese rocket that’s due to fall back from space this week. Just look at how mainstream media covers SpaceX’s discarded junk, compared to Beijing's.

Last week, China launched its new space station into orbit. Using its new Long March 5B vehicle rocket, the core module was successfully placed into orbit. Mission accomplished. But now, all the focus is on the debris of the rocket, and where exactly it will fall back to Earth.

Despite the fact that this is a common process and hardly one which China dominates, the mainstream media have whipped up a hysteria over the perceived risks of the “space junk,” raising fears it could hit something – a hysteria which has been egged on by the United States’ secretary of defence. Beijing, on the other hand, has argued the debris will fall into international waters, pointing out how the media are hyping up the “China Space Threat.”
