How’s this for a scary thought: China’s 8 1/2-ton space station will come crashing down to Earth and scientists have no idea where it will land. According to the Washinton Post, Tiangong 1, or “Heavenly Palace,” will collide with our planet sometime in the next few months and some of it will burn up before it ever reaches Earth, luckily.
China lost control of its space lab and told the United Nations it would come crashing down between April and October of 2018 and admitted they don’t know where the 34-foot spacecraft will land.
Today, Pat discussed all the scary scenarios and remembered when the Soviet Salyut 7 station came crashing down to Earth in 1991. Luckily, no one’s been hurt by one of these before and hopefully, it stays that way.
