How did I NOT know that China has a space station in orbit around Earth!?!?!?!?
China Confirms Its Space Station Is Falling Back to Earth – Sep 19, 2016
China’s space agency confirms the Tiangong space station will burn up sometime late next year.
From the article:
“…China’s Tiangong-1 space station has been orbiting the planet for about 5 years now, but recently it was decommissioned and the Chinese astronauts returned to the surface. …”
Whhhhaaaaa??? I’m just amazed. Not that China had a space station, that was functional, with astronauts and all. But that I DIDN’T KNOW!
I knew about their Lunar rover. Did you? Yeah, they sent one to the Moon a couple years back. First time humans have sent anything to the Moon(‘s surface) since about the 70′s.
Oh, looks like that rover has finally died:
