DOWN IN THE ATLANTIC. SCIENTISTS WILL ANALYZE THE DATA AND HOW WELL IT PERFORMED. WATCHING THE STARS TONIGHT, WE COULD HIT WITH SPACE JUNK ANY MOMENT. CHINA ABANDONED A SPACE STATION IN 2016 AND IT'S BEEN FALLING TO EARTH SINCE. REENTRY WINDOW FROM NOW INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. CHIP REID TAKES A LOOK. IMAGINE A CHINESE SPACE STATION HURTLING TOWARD EARTH. MOST OF IT WILL BURN UP BUT IT WILL STRIKE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 43 DEGREES NORTH AND SOUTH WHICH INCLUDES MOST OF THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU FIND THAT SPACE EXPERT JOHN HAS A WORD OF ADVICE. RELAX. SO THE CHANCES OF THIS THING HITTING SOMEBODY ON EARTH ARE PRETTY SLIM. VERY SLIM? VERY SLIM. BUT NOT ZERO. OKAY, NOT ZERO BUT THE CHANCES ARE ABOUT A MILLION TIMES SMALLER THAN THE ODDS OF WINNING THE POWERBALL JACKPOT SO RELAX. CHINA LAUNCHED THE STATION IN 2011. THE NAME MEANS HEAVENLY PALACE BUT IT'S MORE THAN ONE OF MORE THAN A HALF A MILLION PIECES OF SPACE JUNK ORBITING THE EARTH. SOUNSDZ LIKE A FLYING R.V. YOU KNOW, A WINNEBEGO. AS WE LEARNED AS CHILDREN WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN. IT GRADUALLY SLOWS DOWN OVER TIME. UNTIL EVENTUALLY IT'S NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH TO STAY IN ORBIT. IF IT SOUNDS FAMILIAR YOU PROBABLY SEE GRAVITY WITH SANDRA BULLOCK. EXACTLY WHEN THE REAL ONE WILL HIT THE EARTH IS UP IN THE AIR. AT THIS POINT WE KNOW IN PLUS OR MINUS TWO DAYS OF APRIL FIRST
