Space station to hit Earth in hours

Chinese space station expected to crash down before April 3

Chinese space authorities say the defunct Tiangong 1 space station is expected to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere soon. "And we don't know exactly where that's going to occur".

The United States Air Force 18th Space Control Squadron, which tracks and detects all artificial objects in earth's orbit, said they had also tracked the Tiangong-1 as it re-entered the atmosphere over the South Pacific.

China was excluded from the 420-ton International Space Station mainly due to USA legislation barring such cooperation and concerns over the Chinese space program's strong military connections.

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for High-frequency Physics and Radar Technology (FHR), located just south of the western German city of Bonn, is assisting ESA with radar technology and will be following Tiangong-1's fiery return to earth.

Emergency services in MI in the United States have been put on standby for fear China's out of control space station might crash into the state.

The risk that an individual will be "hit and injured by the re-entry of a generic space object is estimated to be less than one in one trillion".

"There have been 13,000 tonnes of space hardware coming down in the whole history of space flight and there has not been a single casualty reported", says Krag.

On March 31, the agency released new tracking information.

Because two-thirds of Earth is covered by oceans and vast land areas are thinly populated, The Aerospace Corporation reasoned that danger to life or property is very low, and any surviving reentry debris will most likely fall into an ocean.

According to a statement by the state government, the debris could contain hydrazine, which is a highly toxic and corrosive substance.

Tiangong-1 "won't crash to the Earth fiercely, as in sci-fi movie scenarios, but will look more like a shower of meteors", said the CMSEO article.

But in 2016 China announced it had lost control of Tiangong-1.

China's first space lab, Tiangong-1 - or "Heavenly Palace 1" - was launched in 2011 as a facility for testing docking capabilities with other Chinese spacecraft and to explore the possibilities for building a larger permanent space station by 2023.

According to the Aerospace Corporation, Tiangong-1 could land anywhere from northern California to Pennsylvania, including the southern peninsula of MI.

These missions proved the viability of China's space station tech (another test platform, Tiangong-2, was launched in 2016), and in 2013 Tiangong-1, having accomplished what its creators set out to do, was deactivated.
