Not THIS Again – Another Chinese Space Station About to Crash?
On April 2nd of this year, the out-of-control, Chinese, Tiangong-1 space station re-entered the atmosphere and whatever was left splashed down, off the coast of Tahiti.
Guess what? According to the Daily Mail, there's a Tiangong-2 space station still up there - and it just made some wild maneuvers, leading experts to speculate that maybe this one's about to come down as well. On June 13th, the space station came down 60 miles in altitude, but then, 10 days later, went back up to it's original orbit. The maneuvers may just be a sign that the Chinese are making sure they have total control over the Tiangong-2, before they bring it down in a more controlled manner than the first one.
Might want to get those hard hats back out - just in case.
