The space agency of the country has allayed the concerns of the public. It’s regarding Chinese space station crash in Thailand and the probability is only 0.1%.
Heavenly Palace 1 or Tiangong-1, the first space laboratory of China launched into the orbit in 2011. The objective – to carry the experiments of an orbit as part of a permanent Chinese space station in orbit by 2023.
In fact, the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency monitoring the 8-ton weighing Tiangong-1 may hit the part of Indonesia by April. “Tiangong-1 is now 246 kilometers on average from Earth. It is predicted to hit the planet on April 10,” he said. “During its re-entry, most of its parts will burn up through the atmosphere, leaving only a few to land on Earth. The chance of it falling onto Thailand is 0.1%.”
Chinese Space Station Crash Mission:
Moreover, the scientists declined the news site reports and a risk noted of Tiangong-1 to hit Thailand land and it could spread the cancerous hydrazine it carries. “Hydrazine commonly used in industries. To become affected, a person must touch or inhale it in large quantities for a long period,” he said.
Further, the design of any spacecraft or space station would consider the hydrazine using in them. “Hydrazine commonly used in industries. To become affected, a person must touch or inhale it in large quantities for a long period. At this point, we can’t tell where Tiangong-1 will land. As an object comes into Earth’s orbit, its movement will be highly erratic. Unlike those in space where their movements will have a perfect calculation.”
It may pass over Thailand on March 16 and this will be observed from the highest peak of the country – Chiang Mai. However, an unpredicted sense reported regarding the movement of the space station.
The agency, in fact, making a plan to take care of Hydrazine and its effects if it lands. Originally it planned in 2013 to be decommissioned but China extended the length.
“We have been continuously monitoring Tiangong-1 and expect to allow it to fall within the first half of this year,” Mr. Zhu said.
“It will burn upon entering the atmosphere. The remaining wreckage will fall into a designated area of the sea, without endangering the surface,” he said.
The re-entry further delayed in September 2017 and ensured it would fall somewhere in the South Pacific ocean. According to the US Space agency, this would damage some property of Thailand.
