Chinese space station crashing to earth within weeks could land in Australia
Again!!!! First Skylab, now this??
Yes Skylab . That was in the early hours of the 12th of July, 1979, Skylab crashed on WA's south east coast, scattering debris across the Nullarbor and the eastern goldfields and causing a worldwide sensation. Wonder where this one will land ?? China's first space station launched in 2011 and was supposed to wind up in the Pacific Ocean. Now it's anyone's guess where the thing will land. On us most likely.
This thing has a lot of toxic hazardous chemicals...
There are hazardous materials onboard.

Astronomer captures image of China's out-of-control Tiangong-1 streaking across the sky as experts scramble to figure out where it will land
An astronomer managed to capture China's out-of-control space station as it hurtles closer to hitting the earth's surface. The stunning image shows the Tiangong-1 station crossing in front of some of the brightest known constellations earlier this month. Astronomer Gianluca Masi, who is part of the Virtual Telescope Project, shot the photo of the spacecraft in Rome on March 9.
