Chinese space station to crash-land on Earth within months

Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist by Harvard University, told The Guardian in an interview published Friday of which he anticipated Tiangong-1 to hit Earth’s surface sometime between of which month as well as also April.

While much of the craft will be required to burn up in Earth’s atmosphere, McDowell also reportedly said of which some parts weighing as much as 100 kilograms could crash-land to Earth with scientists unable to predict where they will come down until only hours beforehand.

China’s equivalent of NASA, the China National Space Administration (CNSA), has informed the United Nations of which the space station had begun its descent as well as also would likely be carefully monitoring its final plunge.

The chance of which anyone would likely be harmed by Tiangong-1’s debris will be considered highly unlikely.
