Tiangong-1: China space lab to plunge to Earth today

Nabin Talukder: Debris from a defunct Chinese space station is seen colliding with Earth today, scientists monitoring it say. China’s space agency said the station will re-enter the atmosphere in the following 24 hours – in accordance with European Space Agency (ESA) predictions. The Tiangong-1 was a part of China’s goal-oriented space program, and the prototype for a manned station in 2022. It entered orbit in 2011 and after five years finished its mission, after which it was expected to fall back to Earth. The most recent projection from the Esa focuses to re-entry at 07:25 Beijing time (00:25 GMT) on 2 April, in spite of the fact that the window is still “highly variable” – extending from Sunday evening to Monday morning. Most of the station is probably going to burn in the atmosphere yet some debris could survive to hit the surface of the Earth.
