Skylab Is Launched (1973)

Though Skylab was intended to be reused, increased solar activity caused its orbit to degrade faster than expected. In 1979, the 75-tonne station reentered Earth's atmosphere and broke up. Where did the debris land? More...

I was a kid when this happened. I remember everyone at school worrying about getting hit by Skylab. Every kid claimed something landed in their back yard.

Let's look at it from a different angle... too much money wasted/ taken away from the honest, good, hardworking people who are trying to make ends meet while man's greed is searching to be in control of the Universe but cannot control their own addictions, destructive military urges that will eat them away like the flame in the wind.... The bottom line is man can never know the mystery of life and death, and cannot truly be in control of the Universe... man is a very uncaring, selfish, self-destructive animal...
