Chinese Space Lab Falls Into Ocean
The Chinese space lab, Yiangong-1 has fallen to Earth.
At one time they thought the space lab would fall in Southern Michigan but luckily it did not fall near a populated city. Late night on April 1 the lab burned up in the atmosphere over the southern Pacific Ocean.
On space.com the falling debris was the size of a school bus and at first was hard to pin-point where it would land or if it would burn up in the atmosphere. Many organizations around the world (including the U.S.) where track the falling debris and they were able to narrow the window of when it would hit.
Harvard-Smithsonian's Jonathan McDowell said the public would like things to be more predictable, and they would like 7-ton objects not to fall out of the sky, but sometimes that happens.
