The space craft, launched in 2011 as China's first space station, is believed to have been in an uncontrolled orbit since early 2016.
Calmer space weather around earth and its atmosphere is now expected in the coming days, which means that the density of the upper atmosphere, through which Tiangong-1 is moving, did not increase as predicted. Pacific Time on Sunday, April Fools' Day, give or take about 16 hours.
The chances are 1 million times greater of winning the Powerball jackpot than by being hit.
No one has ever been killed by space debris and only one person has ever been hit by space debris. Burning pieces of the station will likely stay visible for a minute or more, making for great viewing if the day is clear, says Markus Dolensky, technical director at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research.
At over 10m in length and weighing more than 8 tonnes, it is larger than most of the man-made objects that routinely re-enter Earth's atmosphere, reports the BBC. Richardson said, "That whole chunk of the middle of the globe is still in the potential impact zone". "We don't know where it will be on Earth over, at that time, when it actually enters the atmosphere".
The ESA's Holger Krag told Newsweek: "Owing to the geometry of the station's orbit, we can already exclude the possibility that any fragments will fall over any spot further north than 43°N or further south than 43°S". You don't have to worry about debris, according to the most recent re-entry area map.More news: Judge rejects trial demand in Stormy Daniels case

Tiangong-1, whose name translates as "Heavenly Palace", hosted two crew missions that included China's first female astronauts and served as a test platform for perfecting docking procedures and other operations.

"It's important that they not touch it, because hydrazine, which is the fuel for that space station, could be on some of the objects that are there".
China's first space station has had a almost seven-year run.
The last time people set foot on the space station was in 2013.
"If by some truly cosmic coincidence you do find a piece of Tiangong-1 in your neighborhood - or if some debris washes up on a shore near you - here's some advice on your best course of action: Don't touch it", said Brandon Specktor, senior writer for LiveScience.com.
