"But there is a good chance that some parts will survive re-entry and fall towards the earth". Despite its relatively short mission, Tiangong-1 has sent back a host of valuable data.
According to European space agency's forewarning, the space station will hit earth any time between Saturday morning and Sunday evening.
While the reentry is likely to create a memorable light show for any astronomers lucky enough to spot it, it is now challenging to predict when exactly the space station will fall. Even though space observatories and scientists have expressed that there's no danger from the crashing space station, Michigan, which falls in the line of potential crash sites, is preparing for impact.
China will step up efforts to coordinate with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs as the re-entry nears, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters on Friday.
The EOC says any suspected space debris should be considered hazardous.
The European Space Agency updated its prediction today, saying Easter Sunday is the best bet for the 8.5-ton Tiangong-1 to plunge into the Earth's atmosphere. Last year, Chinese officials confirmed Tiangong-1 - Chinese for Heavenly Place - would have an uncontrolled entry into the Earth's atmosphere this spring, setting off the space watch for the object.
The possible area of impact will not be outside 43 degrees North or South of the Equator, and although the report states that almost 5.2 billion people live inside the impact area, most of it is the only ocean. It's most likely to be along the white lines.
Though it has attempted to reassure the world about the spacecraft, the country still has no idea where parts of the space station will land.
But Chinese authorities say the uncontrolled space laboratory is unlikely to cause any damage and instead will offer instead a "splendid" show akin to a meteor shower.
If you are one of those worriers, fear not; your chances of being hit by any piece of space station debris, ever, are roughly one in 300 trillion. "We don't know where it will be on Earth over, at that time, when it actually enters the atmosphere".
It all depends on when the space station re-enters Earth's atmosphere, and this can not be accurately predicted yet.
Markus Dolensky, technical director of the International Center for Radio Astronomy Research in Australia, said witnesses to the Tiangong-1 descent should see a "series of fireballs" streaking across the sky - provided there were no clouds.
Earlier this week, the International Cricket Council announced it would ban Smith for one match and fine him all of his match fee. According to media reports, David Warner had a party with his external friends in the bar of team hotel.
This drag force depends in part upon Tiangong-1's position and whether the station is tumbling, which is hard to know for sure. But the odds of the craft hitting anyone is very low, as much of it will disintegrate when it hits the Earth's atmosphere.
