Falling Space Station To Hit Earth Today — European Space Agency

Falling Space Station To Hit Earth Today — European Space Agency

It's thought that anyone who does happen to be looking at the right part of the sky when the spacecraft makes its descent will likely see a glowing object moving for several minutes, like a slow shooting star.

There is "no need for people to worry", the China Manned Space Engineering Office said on its WeChat social media account.

No one knows for sure.

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.

The Aerospace Corp. also said it could land along a strip of the USA that includes the southern Lower Peninsula of MI.

Authorities in the U.S. state of MI were taking no chances, however, and had put emergency teams on standby in preparation for the possibility of it landing on their patch, it said.

China had planned a controlled re-entry of Tiangong-1 into Earth's atmosphere. Last year, Chinese officials confirmed Tiangong-1 - Chinese for Heavenly Place - would have an uncontrolled entry into the Earth's atmosphere this spring, setting off the space watch for the object.

"Northern Europe including France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland are definitely on the safe side".

Krag said it still not yet known where the space station will hit Earth, but said it would be extremely unlikely for anyone to be injured when it does.

The 9.4-ton, school bus-size space lab is tumbling, making it almost impossible for analysts to determine the effects atmospheric drag has on its trajectory. "We have been able to confirm that there is a tumble, we just can't tell the orientation".

The ministry said the Tiangong-1 may still fall on Asian and African countries.

How common is man-made space debris?

Israel to send African migrants to West under new United Nations deal
A spokesman for the German Interior Ministry said he was unaware of any plans to resettle African migrants from Israel to Germany. Canada, Italy and Germany are yet to officially confirm their participation in the agreement.

Fortunately, most of it will burn up in the atmosphere.

"Calmer space weather around Earth and its atmosphere is now expected in the coming days". Debris from the 6-ton satellite ended up falling into the Pacific Ocean, causing no damage.

Although the incident has been embarrassing for the China's space program, it hasn't delayed its progress.

The Tiangong-1 was sent into orbit in 2011 for experiments as part of China's space programme.

China inexplicably lost contact with Tiangong 1 in 2016, three years after crews abandoned the lab. Since then it has been orbiting gradually closer and closer to Earth on its own while being monitored. It also has two sleep stations for astronauts.

On Monday 26 March, the space station was at an altitude of about 210 kilometres (130 miles). The completed 60-ton station is set to come into full service in 2022 and operate for at least a decade.
