An 8.5 ton Chinese Space Station, the Tiangong-1, is estimated to crash into Earth in a number of months, according to FoxNews.

The satellite has been reported as “out of control”, and will be a deadly force upon impact. “I expect it will come down a few months from now – late 2017 or early 2018,” Jonathan McDowell, a Harvard University astrophysicist, as stated by The Guardian.

Simulations have shown that the satellite will greatly shrink in the atmosphere, however, large metal debris are expected to make contact, according to FoxNews.

A China’s space agency spokesperson said: “Based on our calculation and analysis, most parts of the space lab will burn up during falling, There will be lumps of about 100 [kilograms] or so, still enough to give you a nasty wallop if it hit you,” (220 pounds), as reported by Google News.
