China's Tiangong-1 space station to crash to Earth

March 30-April 2, 2018 -- China’s Tiangong-1 space station will come crashing back to Earth in days. While it is impossible to plot exactly where the 8.5-tonne module will impact, the chance of debris hitting anyone is tiny. Any debris could, however, be contaminated with remaining toxic and carcinogenic hydrazine rocket fuel.

In 2011, the Tiangong-1, or Heavenly Palace, China’s first space station, was launched, serving as both a manned laboratory and an experimental testbed to demonstrate orbital rendezvous and docking capabilities. Four years later, Beijing admitted it would not be able to perform a re-entry due to having lost control of the module.
