Know where dropped threat Chinese station

Chinese authorities have said the roughly eight-tonne Tiangong-1 is unlikely to cause any damage when it comes down and that its fiery disintegration will offer a “splendid” show akin to a meteor shower

China's defunct Tiangong 1 space station hurtled toward Earth Sunday and was expected to re-enter the atmosphere within hours.

Things went wrong in March 2016 when the China Manned Space Engineering Office announced Tiangong-1's service had ended, but also that the telemetry link to the station had been lost.

The government, however, did not specify the reason.

"The JFSCC works alongside government, industry and worldwide partners to track and report reentries, to include today's Tiangong-1 reentry, because the space domain is vital to our shared global security interests", said Major General Stephen Whiting, deputy commander of JFSCC.

The Palace said Prince Philip was "comfortable and in good spirits" and is "progressing satisfactorily at this early stage". The top of the thigh bone is removed and replaced with a metal stem that has a smooth ball on the end.

The US military's network of radars and sensors also confirmed that the Tiangong-1 had re-entered over the Pacific, but a minute later than the Chinese estimate, according to a statement by the Joint Force Space Component Command.

Asked about the space station, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular briefing he had no other information and reiterated that China had been reporting the situation to the United Nations space agency in an open and transparent way.

Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, tweeted that the Tiangong-1 came down northwest of Tahiti. He said Tiangong-1's landing site in the Pacific Ocean represents "kind of where you hope it would".

Space.com reports that if someone happens to find a suspected chunk of the Tiangong-1 to not touch it as it may be contaminated with a toxic rocket fuel.

The amount of debris that landed on the Earth's surface still intact has not yet been determined. Several space crafts or stations have re-entered our atmosphere in the past, and this most recent one is just another instance in which a person was not killed or injured.

Two crews of Chinese astronauts lived on the station while testing docking procedures and other operations.

While there was an uneasy level of confusion surrounding a free-falling bus-sized space station, Aerospace gave the odds of a chunk hitting a piece of the space station at 1-in-1-trillion.

That makes Tiangong-1's spinning, erratic descent less than ideal. Xinhua news agency says the window is between 8:11 a.m. and 9:33 a.m. A third, even bigger space station is planned for 2023. That's when the fires started, likely destroying most of Tiangong-1. There was no immediate confirmation of the final resting place of any remaining debris.
