ESA issued an updated prediction of its re-entry date on January 12, giving a current estimated window between March 17 and April 21.

The Chinese space station with 'highly toxic' chemicals onboard that is currently hurtling toward earth may crash into lower Michigan, it has been revealed.
It is believed China's first prototype station, Tiangong-1, will come crashing back to the planet around April 3, experts say.
US research organization Aerospace Corporation revealed that parts of southern Lower Michigan are among the regions that have the highest probability of being hit by falling debris, according to MLive.com.

Oh great.... Can somebody let Ash know to gas up the saw?
We're gonna have some chemically fueled zombies rambling around his own backyard when it does.

China's out-of-control space station will crash into Earth this coming Easter weekend, according to the European Space Agency.

The agency's Space Debris Office has said Tiangong-1 will hit somewhere across our planet's northern hemisphere between March 30 and April 2.

Previous estimates suggested the rogue station, which is carrying highly toxic chemicals, would enter Earth's orbit on April 3.

According to experts tracking the station, it has the highest chance of crashing along a narrow strip around latitudes of 43 degrees north and south.

This includes a number of highly populated cities including New York, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto.

The European Space Agency (ESA) predict that Tiangong-1 will tumble back to our planet at some point between March 30 and April 2.

When the station, which is carrying highly toxic chemicals, does eventually enter the atmosphere it could unleash a 'series of fireballs' that will be seen by observers.

Amateur astronomers are now training their telescopes on Tiangong-1 to catch a glimpse of the doomed satellite.

You can join the viewing as of 13:00 BST (8am ET) via a live stream from the Virtual Telescope Project.

1522312032061.png

This image of the Chinese Space Station was taken over a two second exposure and from the Virtual Telescope Project live feed. The space station was travelling at 18 degrees a second across the sky


Daily updates on ESA's website are currently tracking the space stations gradual descent.

It currently sits at an altitude of around 124 miles (200 kilometres).

Due to its gentle descent, Tiangong-1 is now experiencing significant drag as it brushes against the planet's denser outer atmosphere and it is dropping out of orbit by about 2.5 miles a day.

When Tiangong-1 reaches an altitude of about 43 miles above the surface, it will begin its fiery re-entry.

When it reaches this point, Markus Dolensky, of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, told CNN that observers on Earth will potentially see 'a series of fireballs streaking across the sky'.

I'm sure NORAD has about a dozen eyes (satellites/RADARs) on it. I wouldn't be worried about it until NORAD says it's a problem.
Yup the USAF/USMC/USN won't worry about it unless if its trajectory is into populated areas in the US or allied nations. China should pay for damages this scrap metal causes

I just checked with the link
and
View attachment 99158


They Predict it to land here
I would Keep Fighters on Alert for it, possible fragging of it if it is not completely burned up.

State proprietary computer and program. Whichever country get hands on can use it to reverse engineering potential Chinese military communication system.

You really don’t wanna know the kind of mutation we have seen in wild caught ocean fish. FYI the damaged Japanese NPP is still leaking radioactive water into pacific ocean.

That's the reason I really seldom eat fish at all, if I don't know their origin.
