A huge, orbiting Chinese space station could crash to Earth in a fireball, space experts have warned.

In a press conference this week, Chinese officials announced that the eight-ton Tiangong-1 space station would fall back to Earth in late 2017.

But Popular Mechanics reports that the officials did not give a date – which suggests that the space station is out of control.

Quote:Most pieces of space junk burn up on re-entry, but because of its size, pieces of Tiangong-1 might reach the ground.

Good morning Octo.

I got 3 packs of wild turkey tail mushroom extract powder delivered today. So let's see how that works. I have just made a coffee and added a teaspoon of it.

There is a prime money-making opportunity to salvage these old satellites, etc. - c'mon SpaceX.

If the original ISS is any indication, this one will burn up on impact. Remember that one fell and completely burned up.
