China Defunct Space Lab Comes Down Over South Pacific
Written by Oluseyi Adefowora

China’s defunct Tiangong-1 space laboratory mostly broke upon re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere over the South Pacific, Chinese and US reports say.

It re-entered the atmosphere around 00:15 GMT on Monday, China’s Manned Space Engineering Office said.

Tiangong-1 was launched in 2011 to carry out docking and orbit experiments.

It was a part of China’s attempts to build a manned space station by 2022 but stopped working in March 2016.
