Default China's space station is 'out of control' and will crash into Earth - but no one knows where the debris will land

Quote:
The spacecraft was China's first space station launched in September 2011
Tiangong-1 was a forerunner for a larger space complex to be built in 2020
Without control it could explode and rain molten metal down onto Earth

The Tiangong-1 space station module (artist's depiction) was
China's first step towards its ultimate goal of developing, building,
and operating a large Space Station as a permanent human
presence in Low Earth Orbit. The nation has now lost control of
the space station
