China lost control of the space station Tiangong-1


The Chinese authorities officially recognized the loss of control over the space station Tiangong-1. Now unmanaged station is in orbit and is gradually reduced.

The launch of this space station was made in 2011 and its length is 11 meters. During the stay of the station orbiting the Earth it was visited 6 Chinese astronauts including the first Chinese woman astronaut.

According to experts it is impossible to calculate precisely the time and place of the fall of the station. We can only predict that the station will crash to earth in the first half of 2017. A large part of the station will burn up upon entry into the dense layers of the atmosphere, but some parts of it reach the surface.
