BEIJING — A Chinese space Tiangong-1, roughly the size of a school bus has pierced the Earth’s atmosphere over the South Pacific, most of it has reportedly burned up, Chinese state media says.

The space station made its long-awaited re-entry in the central region of the South Pacific at 8:15 am [00:15 GMT] on Monday, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported, citing the China Manned Space Engineering Office (CMSEO).

The ‘Heavenly Palace’, also known as Tiangong-1, began its descent around 10:15am, according to Xinhua. Once it reached around 70km above the surface, the intense heat of re-entry melted the craft and it began to break apart.

The crashed space lab burned up almost entirely on its way back to Earth, Chinese media reported, citing data from the Beijing Aerospace Control Center.
