The European Space Agency (ESA) has issued a new re-entry forecast for China’s Tiangong-1 space lab.
The 8.5-ton spacecraft is now expected to fall into Earth’s atmospherebetween March 24 and April 19, though ESA officials stressed that this is a rough estimate.
“Re-entry will take place anywhere between 43 degrees north and 43 degrees south (e.g. Spain, France, Portugal, Greece, etc.)” latitude, officials with the Space Debris Office at ESA’s European Space Operations Center in Darmstadt, Germany, wrote in an update last week. “Areas outside of these latitudes can be excluded. At no time will a precise time/location prediction from ESA be possible.”
