Even so, the probability of you getting hit by the space station debris is one in a million.

However, given China's confidential way of doing things, it has not released every detail about the Tiangong-1's design and hence the experts were not sure how much percentage of the station would survive the re-entry in the atmosphere.

The Chinese space station Tiangong-1 is now speeding towards the Planet Earth as well as it is anticipated that the unchecked as well as dropping spaceport station will certainly participate in Earth's ambience near around 20th March to 2nd April.

Tiangong-1 is a satellite laboratory that contains large amounts of hydrazine, a toxic, flammable chemical that can wreak havoc on the human body, including poisoning the blood, kidneys, lungs, the central nervous system, and damage to eyes, nose, mouth, and respiration.

While Skylab is the most famous spacecraft to fall in an uncontrolled fashion back to Earth, there are many others that have attracted attention over the years. It settled into an orbit about 217 miles (350 kilometers) above Earth - a little lower than the International Space Station, whose average altitude is 250 miles (400 km).

Tiangong-1 has officially stopped sending data and entered its final phase of life on March 16, a statement issued yesterday by the China Manned Space Engineering Office said.

In a few days, China's prototype space station Tiangong-1 will come crashing through Earth's atmosphere as a dazzling fireball-and no one knows where the debris will hit.

It added: "Due to the relatively large size of the object, it is expected that there will be many pieces reentering together, some of which may survive reentry and land on the Earth's surface". Previously it was informed that the space station may fall between 43 degrees north and 43 degrees south latitudes, which is covered with water and some of its parts may hit the ground.

A report by The Aerospace Corporation does highlight specific regions of the world that are more likely to see Tiangong-1's fiery demise, though.

Only one person has ever been hit by space debris.

It's unknown where exactly Tiangong-1 will fall back to Earth.

Tiangong-1, known as the "Heavenly Palace", originally launched in September 2011 and was viewed as a major step for the space agency in its quest to build a space station by 2020.

"This is because the event depends on a number of factors including the variation in density of the atmosphere, the orientation of the spacecraft and the uncertainties in its exact location and velocity", Prof.
