Confirmed: China's Space Station Is Out Of Control And Currently Crashing Towards Earth

 After a few months of doubt and suspicion, China has just confirmed their first orbiter is traveling towards the world and is totally out of control.



A senior official of the Chinese program publicized at a conference a few days ago that the Pangong-1 space laboratory is anticipated to descent to Earth by the top of 2017, Xinhua wire service reports. 

They also said that it's presently unbroken and orbiting at a height of around 370 kilometers (230 miles).

Wu Ping, deputy director of China's manned space engineering office, during the recent group discussion, said:

"Based on our calculation and analysis, most parts of the space lab will expend during falling"



Chinese officials publicized that the space agency will stick with it to follow the route of Tiangong-1 and can issue an update on its probable time of arrival if essential.

Tiangong-1, which implies “Heavenly Palace," is about 10.3-meter-long (34-foot-long). it had been launched back in 2011 as China’s first manned satellite. It finished its mission in March this year. Nevertheless, since then, many astronomers seen that the orbiter gave the impression to be purposelessly drifting out of control and heading for Earth. The quietness by the Chinese government only intensified doubts about the control of the orbiter.

China has also launched a replacement investigational orbiter, Tiangong-2, just last week, and is currently going to send a well-developed space platform within the start of the next decade.
