The booster that launched the Chinese space station segment will re-enter today. Some parts of it are expected to reach the surface. It passed over Salt Lake City about 10 minutes ago, so we're safe.

It is predicted to enter in about three hours. If that's accurate (and it could vary by as much as + or - an hour) it could hit ground in Thailand or even right back in China. There's a live Youtube channel tracking it, if you care to follow the event.

What if it splats down on Peking? Will they declare war on somebody?

If it hits anywhere in China, it might finally drive them to make the damn things controllable enough to re-enter in a planned area - like all other countries do.

Why don't they just land it on an autonomous ship?

Unfortunately it doesn't look like it's gonna come down in China, but that would be good karma.

No, it won't come down in the Baja. Predicted entry is about 90 minutes from now - one full orbit. That would have it landing in the Indian Ocean - or Thailand, or even southeast China. Actual reentry point ans impact depend on whether it is tumbling or not, orientation, and the sun's affect on the upper atmosphere. I other words, pure luck.

The vid you posted is showing a predicted entry. At the time of my post it was saying Baja. They've since moved it back out to the Pacific off SoCal and Baja.

Is it inaccurate?

Steve, the entry point marks where it begins to see atmosphere, not where it lands. It could travel another 10,000 miles after that entry point.

If you're watching, it may have just started reentry. If so, it MIGHT land near the tip of Baja.

If the posted video is valid, it entered earlier than expected, over Malaysia. That would put the impact zone in the Pacific east of Japan, well clear of anywhere densely populated.
