In 2016, the Chinese space agency declared that it lost control over the Tiangogn-1 space station in the same year. It has been reported that it will crash on earth between 31st March and 1st April and the crash location is unknown. It will enter the earth’s atmosphere on the 31st of March at 3 pm BST. In this course, the Chinese government has said that it will be in touch if the space station looks to be hitting any country. But any type of warning at the end moment will be too late as the country itself is in dilemma as to where the space station will land. The space station weighs almost 8.5 tons and is of a bus’s size.
There are chances of the space station crashing in several highly populated areas such as such as Toronto, Rome, Beijing, Istanbul, Chicago, Barcelona, and New York. The China Manned Space Engineering Office or the CMSEO stated that unlike portrayed in sci-fi movies of space stations coming down fiercely on earth, this crash will look like a beautiful meteor shower and will sail across a starry sky as they will move towards earth.
At an altitude of approximately 40 miles (70km), flotsam and jetsam will start to transform into ‘a progression of fireballs’, which is when individuals on the ground will ‘see a breathtaking show’. The sensational reentry will be hard to miss, yet space experts are keeping their eyes peeled for Tiangong-1 all through its last days.
It is unmistakable to the exposed eye and can be seen by individuals living in mid-latitude territories in both the Southern and Northern Hemisphere. In the same way as other satellites and the ISS, Tiangong-1 resembles an unblinking white light floating quickly over the sky. Foreseeing when and where the maverick station will achieve the surface is to a great degree troublesome as it orbits the Earth at around 18,000 mph which is around 29,000km/h.
To track the satellite, specialists are utilizing the absolute most exceptional and intense telescopes on the planet. At the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques, researchers were as of late ready to catch pictures of the specialty utilizing radar imaging. Authorized by the ESA, Fraunhofer specialists are examining the rotation and the speed of the Chinese satellite.
The following and imaging radar framework utilize motions in the Ku-band or 12 to 18 gigahertz and on the other hand, the I-band radio frequencies to take after Tiangong-1. Radar enables the establishment to watch the station paying little heed to the climate, or on the off chance that it is day or night.
