China’s Tiangong-1 space station ‘out of control’ and will crash to Earth

“China’s first space station is expected to come crashing down to Earth next year, fuelling concerns that Chinese space authorities have lost control of the 8.5-tonne module. The Tiangong-1 or ‘Heavenly Palace’ lab was described as a ‘potent political symbol’ of China’s growing power when it was launched in 2011 as part of an ambitious scientific push to turn China into a space superpower.”
