Chinese runaway space station will crash to Earth within months, expert warns

Chinese satellite Tiangong-1 launched in 2011 might fall on Earth soon as it has lost it track and has become out of control, reported Chinese Space Agency.

Chinese space agency referred its space station as the "Heavenly Palace, " and it was launched with a hope to make China a superpower in space.

In September 2016, Chinese officials already informed that the space station would fall to the Earth in 2017 or 2018 after speculating its activities for several months.The China National Space Administration (CNSA) has also notified the United Stations that they had no control over the station and would be carefully monitoring its final descent.

The station will reduce significantly in size as the Earth's atmosphere burns it up. Some pieces of the space station had landed outside Perth in Western Australia.

"You really can't steer these things", he said previous year. Although most parts of the space station would burn in space, yet a 100 KG of mass may hit the Earth.

"Yes, there's a chance it will do damage, it might take out someone's vehicle, there will be a rain of a few pieces of metal, it might go through someone's roof, like if a flap fell off a plane", McDowell told the Guardian in 2016.

"There will be lumps of about 100kg or so, still enough to give you a nasty wallop if it hit you", he said. As we learned from Sir Isaac Newton, "What goes up must come down", and China's Tiangong-1 space station is coming down fast.

Wu said Tiangong-1 was "currently intact" and that authorities would "continue to monitor [it] and strengthen early warning for possible collision with objects". Some of the station's larger metal components could still tumble to the surface, and getting nailed with a huge hunk of metal moving at terminal velocity will most certainly be the end of your life.

The space lab was originally scheduled to return to earth after two years, but has remained in orbit for the last four years in sleep mode.
