WATCH: China’s defunct Tiangong 1 space station hurtles toward uncontrolled reentry

China’s first orbiting outpost, the Tiangong 1 space station, is hurtling toward an uncontrolled re-entry in the Earth’s atmosphere. Nearly the size of a school bus, the station is expected to break apart and disintegrate, with some fragments reaching the ground. Launched in 2011, the Chinese space agency has not been in contact with Tiangong 1 since 2016.

Lane Luckie appeared on KLTV’s streaming newscast, East Texas Now, to explain what will happen over the next few days.
