After China graciously gave the world Covid19, they're at it again.

This time they'll be giving us debris from their rocket, which was supposed to splash down in the ocean, but just like Covid19, they've lost control of it.

Scientists have detected two collisions between a neutron star and a black hole in the space of 10 days.
"We have to go back to the drawing board and rewrite our theories," he said effusively.
"We have learned a bit of a lesson again. When we assume something we tend to be proved wrong after a while. So we have to keep our minds open and see what the Universe is telling us."
