Abandoned Chinese space station returns to Earth
A Chinese space station has returned to Earth.
Debris from the abandoned Tiangong-one fell over a sparsely populated area of the South Pacific.
Brad Tucker, an astrophysicist at Australian National University, believes 90% of the station burned up upon re-entry, leaving behind hundreds of kilograms of debris.
Radar clocked the space station hurtling at more than 27 thousand kilometres per hour as it entered the atmosphere.
