People around the world watched anxiously as China’s space station, Tiangong-1, hurtled towards Earth this weekend. The exact time and location of the crash weren’t precisely pinpointed until the final few hours last night, when it eventually broke apart and burned up in the skies over the South Pacific.
Yes on April Fools’ Day… Really. I’m 100% serious. I don’t blame you for the hesitation, I almost didn’t believe it myself before writing this post. But unless international space agencies somehow came together to collectively prank the entire planet, this is real.
