Chinese Space Station to Hit Earth This Weekend

The out-of-control Chinese space station is expected to crash to the earth this sometime this weekend. Scientists now predict that it will occur between March 30 and April 2 and scientists say the reentry of the space station is likely to display a series of fireballs which would be visible even in daylight. While much of the spacecraft will likely burn up on reentry into the atmosphere, many large pieces of metal and other materials — some more than 200 pounds each — are expected to survive and hit the surface of the earth at a very high velocity with potentially tragic consequences.

 In addition, scientists say “there may be a highly toxic and corrosive substance called hydrazine on board the spacecraft that could survive reentry. For your safety, do not touch any debris you may find on the ground or inhale vapors it may emit.”

Experts have calculated the most likely locations across the world the space station would crash and it does include Rochester, MN.  See the info-graphic created by the Daily Mail.
