Where will the Chinese space station "Tiangong 1" fall?

The Chinese space station, "Tiangong 1", was placed in Earth orbit in 2011, but it will crumble into the Earth's atmosphere, and no one can know exactly where the wreckage of the station.

China confirms that the wreckage of its Tiangong 1 spacecraft will not cause any damage to the Earth, but will provide a "spectacular display" in the sky like meteor showers.

The Chinese space laboratory, Tiangong 1, is expected to enter the Earth's atmosphere between Saturday and Monday, the Chinese space agency said.

"It will not crash on the ground as violently as in science fiction, but it will crumble into the Earth's atmosphere and look like fireworks in the sky," said the space authorities in Beijing. "It's a spectacular display in the sky like meteor showers."

China's Foreign Ministry said on Friday that large parts of the Tiangong 1 space station are unlikely to land on the planet and that Beijing is in close contact with the United Nations on the development of the process.

According to China's space program, no one knows for certain where debris will fall.
