Final Update? Will the Chinese Space Station Hit Michigan?
Soon, possibly as soon as this weekend, the Chinese Tiangong-1 space station will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up - mostly. Chances are low that any debris will hit anywhere on land - much less hit anybody in Michigan. HOWEVER - there is a CHANCE. So, let's be careful out there.
This article from Space.com poses an excellent question: how can we intercept and land probes on comets traveling at 35,000 mph and yet, we can't figure out exactly when and where this space station debris will come down?
If you want to track the progress of Tiangong-1, go to the Satview website.
Thank goodness, the citizens of Clinton County are preparing. Are you?
