The WIA report that an out-of-control Chinese space station moving at 17,000 mph was set to plummet to Earth over this Easter weekend, leaving space experts scrambling to guess where.
Tiangong-1, or "The Heavenly Palace," could re-enter the atmosphere over a
major city and scientists will not know until a few hours before it happens.
The space station was expected to re-enter the atmosphere between March 31 and April 4.
China has released little information apart from its altitude and without more details of its design European scientists and NASA have had little information on which to base their predictions for the landing area.
BUT do not be concerned nor change daily behavior (SIC), and to worry more about crossing the street more than looking to the sky to see if you are about to be hit on the 'noggin' by space debris.
A space debris expert based in Germany, said: "Over the past 60 years of
space flight, we are nearing the mark of 6,000 uncontrolled re-entries of large objects, mostly satellites and upper rocket stages.
"Only one event actually produced a fragment which hit a person."
The UK's Telegraph newspaper said " this person was Lottie Williams, in Tulsa, Oklahoma."
In 1997 she was struck on the shoulder by a six-inch piece of metal from a
Delta 2 rocket.
