China's first space station will hit the Earth's atmosphere soon

Heads Up: China's Tiangong-1 Space Station Is Crashing to Earth China's Space Station may crash on Earth by this month, latest by space agencies

Recently, a top Chinese spaceflight engineer denied that the space station was out of control, Reuters reported.

As a result, now it is reported that Tiangong-1 will enter the dense layers of Earth's atmosphere in the period between 29 March and 9 April.

In recent days Aerospace, a U.S. research organisation that advises government and private enterprise on space flight, also updated its re-entry window.

The huge space station lost communication with the control center and the now uncontrolled fall to the Ground. The space station will fall somewhere between 43 degrees North and South, but because of the angle of the Tiangong-1, it's more likely to fall near the maximum or minimum than on the equator.

On September 14, 2016, China made an official statement predicting Tiangong-1 would reenter the atmosphere in the latter half of 2017.

The chances of re-entry are slightly higher in northern states in the U.S., central Italy, northern Spain, northern China, New Zealand, the Middle East and parts of South Africa and southern Africa.

An Aerospace analysis found that "the risk that an individual will be hit and injured by a piece of debris is estimated to be less than one in a one trillion".

McDowell said Tiangong-1's descent had been speeding up in recent months and it was now falling by about 6km a week, compared with 1.5km in October.

Heads Up: China's Tiangong-1 Space Station Is Crashing to Earth

The Tiangong-1 or Heavenly Palace lab was launched in 2011 and described as a "potent political symbol" of China - part of a scientific push to become a space superpower.

"It is only in the final week or so that we are going to be able to start speaking about it with more confidence", he said.

However, Aerospace insisted the chance of debris hitting anyone living in these nations was tiny.

"To make any sensible statement about what will survive, we'd need to know what's inside", said Stijn Lemmens, a space debris analyst at the ESA's Darmstadt centre told the Guardian. For about five years, it did just that, orbiting the Earth and acting as a base for three missions (two manned, one unmanned) for the Chinese National Space Administration.

"I would guess that a few pieces will survive re-entry".

Things go wrong in space and we must accept that.

McDowell tweeted on Wednesday, March 7 that "confusion remains widespread" in predicting Tiangong-1's reentry location, and date and time.

Much of the spacecraft is expected to burn up in the atmosphere upon re-entry.
