China Confirms its Space Station is Falling Back to EarthIn a press conference on Wednesday, Chinese officials appear to have confirmed what many observers have long suspected: that China is no longer in control of its space station.

In a press conference last week, China announced that the space station would be falling back to earth at some point in late 2017.China Confirms its Space Station is Falling Back to Earth
