Tiangong-2 Space Station has fallen to Earth

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

On Friday, the Chinese space station Tiangong-2 was spectacularly decommissioned — it was set on a crash course with a remote patch of the Pacific Ocean called the "Spacecraft Cemetery."

Tiangong-2 is no more, but we can re-live its final moments. The state-owned China Global Television Network posted a YouTube video of the space station as it begins to incinerate while re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.

Oh, they meant to do it. I was wondering if it came as a surprise to them. Scene: Control Room at Chinese Space Command Headquarters, Monday morning. Boss walks in.. "Morning, anything to report?" Hapless technician on duty: "Er, well, it's like this, boss ..." :blush:

perhaps that did happen, and they said "ooh, yeah, we meant to do that" while the tech is getting slapped in the back of his head by embarrassed angry boss.
