A Chinese space lab could plummet back to Earth in the next 24 hours, authorities say, in a fiery end to one of the country’s highest profile space projects.
The 40-foot long Tiangong-1 or “Heavenly Palace,” is expected to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere between Sunday night and Monday morning US eastern time, according to the latest updates from the European Space Agency and the China Manned Space Engineering Office. Earlier estimates put the date as late as April 4.
