UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – The site of China’s manned space flight program announced that most parts of China’s Tiangong 1 space station had been burned over the Pacific when entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

According to a statement posted on the website, the station Tiangong 1 (Heavenly Palace) was launched on September 29, 2011, and has maintained its orbit since then until recently deviated from it and burned.

On April 2, the station overturned and crashed to enter the Earth’s atmosphere at 8.15 pm Beijing time.

The station “entered the Earth’s atmosphere over the southern part of the Pacific Ocean to burn most of its parts” due to its high temperature due to atmospheric friction, the Chinese site said.

On 28 March, the European Space Agency announced that it expected the space station to fall over countries that might be Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece or Turkey.

The Agency also speculated that the parts of the burning plant would fall over the territory of the Central Asian countries, with the exception of Kazakhstan.

On the basis of its astronomical calculations, it did not exclude that the parts of the burning plant would be destroyed over the territory of China or Japan.

It also pointed out that the calculations showed that the wreckage could reach Africa, the countries of Asia, the Basin of Oceania, Australia, the United States, Central and South America, and even the southern regions of Dagestan, southern Russia.
