Re: The Chinese Space Station is Falling to Earth Today!
There is no such thing as "space".

And neither are "space" stations.


Conveniently, the Chinese "space" station fell in the Pacific, and there isn't a single proof of it falling.



I also have a "space" station myself. It was in orbit for 100 years (my granpa put it there, when he was young) but it fell in my back garden 2 weeks ago.


I can provide the same proofs that I built it and put it on orbit, and that it fell, that NASA and CNSA provided.

Which is NONE.

In 2018, Tiangong-2 began to lower its orbit to prepare for the end of its mission. On 19 July, it will fire its thrusters again to aim its descent toward the Pacific Ocean. Most of the craft will probably burn up as it enters the atmosphere, but any parts that survive should splash into the water harmlessly.

The space station is still fully functional, and is being brought down purposefully now that it’s finished the experiments it was launched to carry out. This will avoid the fate of its predecessor, Tiangong-1, which lost power in April 2018 and crashed down in an uncontrolled fashion. Its remains also fell into the ocean, but that was simple luck. This time, Chinese officials will make sure that their space station hits water.

Would be very interesting if this Space Station would come down in Iran. Imagine if it struck a nuclear facility. That would cause a major disaster with many Iranians feeling the country...

Perfect scenario where the USA, Israel, and UAE can't be called out for destroying Iran's nuclear ambitions...

Things that make you go... hmmm....
