It's not Chinese satellites that make the Doom reports, It's the first stage of their Long March rockets. They launch them up there without any means of a controlled de-orbit.

They're almost 50,000lbs, this old US satellite is only 5,400 lbs. Big difference.

Confirmed. I was hit by a 5,400 pound satellite and I’m fine, but my friend got hit with a 50,000 space object and she was vaporized.
