La estación espacial Tiangong-1 de China se estrellará en la Tierra

Graphic News

March 29-April 9, 2018 -- La estación espacial Tiangong-1 de China se estrellará en la Tierra en unos días. Si bien es imposible predecir exactamente donde caerá el módulo de 8,5 toneladas, es pequeñísima la probabilidad de que los escombros puedan golpear a alguien. Sin embargo, los escombros podrían estar contaminados con restos del combustible para cohetes tóxico y cancerígeno hidrazina.

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.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
