Return Tiangong-1 ends with a sizzler
beijing - The Chinese space station Tiangong-1 has returned to the atmosphere in the night from Sunday to Monday at 2:15 am (Dutch time). According to Chinese space authorities, the drifting space station was for the most part destroyed when it sank through the atmosphere over the Southern Pacific Ocean.
The station was expected to return to the atmosphere above the Atlantic Ocean east of Brazil. The space base, however, already collapsed in the atmosphere in the middle of the Southern Pacific, also called the South Pacific, the ocean between Australia and South America. In the atmosphere, the space station exploded and burned almost completely.
