Height of Tiangong-1

mean height in km

This plot shows the orbital height of the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 over the last year. Tiangong-1 is out of control and will re-enter the atmosphere early in 2018. It is probable that some large pieces will survive re-entry and hit the Earth's surface. It's impossible to say when and where the re-entry will take place, but it's unlikely to be over a populated area.
