On Wednesday, at a press conference, Chinese officials confirmed that many observers have long been observing, namely that China no longer controls its space station.
Tyangun-1, the Chinese station was in orbit of the Earth for 5 years, but recently it was decommissioned and Chinese astronauts returned to Earth. At a press conference last week, China announced that the space station would inexorably fall to Earth. It will finally land at the end of 2017.
It is assumed that the falling apparatus burns in the atmosphere, but in the case of the Chinese station, not everything is clear. Due to the loss of control over it, a return can be a “surprise” for someone.
Some suggest that it will burn, but still advised to closely monitor the sky. It is likely that foil hats may not help in this case, do not forget, gravity is a heartless thing.
In general, look to the sides, as well as to the sky, suddenly it is not a lucky star, but a banal piece of charred metal.
