Per UN treaty "States shall, upon request, provide assistance to launching States in recovering space objects that return to Earth outside the territory of the Launching State."

If Tiangong-1 lands in my house, it's on E-Bay. Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you might see it) the Chinese space lab is statistically unlikely to fall on my house.

A link to SatFlare, which has more information regarding the possible crash paths.

As predicted, China's Tiangong(Heavenly Palace)-1 space lab fell from the sky on Sunday evening.

The city bus-sized craft, which almost entirely burned up as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere, broke into small pieces as it plummeted over the South Pacific Ocean. The derelict spacecraft has been slowly falling out of its original orbit for several years.

The disintegrating lab hurtled from orbit toward the South Pacific waters at about 8:16 p.m. ET, Space.com reports.




Visitors sit beside a model of China's Tiangong-1 space station in 2010, at the 8th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai in southern China's Guangdong Province. As forecast, China's defunct Tiangong 1 space station re-entered Earth's atmosphere Sunday.

I am a layman.
