Chinese Space Station Is Hurtling to Earth and Why Aren’t We Talking About The Toxic Chemicals?

For those who don’t know China’s out-of-control space station Tiangong-1, which is carrying toxic chemicals, is set to crash on Easter Sunday. The Chinese government has admitted it still has no idea where it will land.

Space Station

The bus-sized space station, weighing 8.5-tons, is predicted to reenter Earth’s atmosphere at 3pm BST (10am ET) on April 1, according to the latest estimates.

New York City, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto are all in it’s way. According to scientists, there is a possibility that a “series of fireballs” could be seen by the naked eye.

The European Space Agency has a smaller window between midday Saturday and early Sunday afternoon GMT time.

China Manned Space Engineering Office has stated “The large fragments falling to the ground are not very great, the probability is extremely small. There is ‘no need for people to worry”.

T2C’s question, is more about the toxic chemicals. The chemical is called hydrazine and is believed to cause cancer in human Hydrazine is a colourless, oily liquid or sometimes white crystalline compound with a very highly reactive base. Symptoms of short-term exposure to high levels of hydrazine include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, dizziness, headache, nausea, pulmonary edema, seizures, and coma, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Long-term exposure can also damage the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system in humans. The liquid is corrosive and may produce dermatitis from skin contact in humans and animals. Increased incidences of lung, nasal cavity, and liver tumours have been observed in rodents exposed to hydrazine. The EPA has classified hydrazine as a Group B2, a probable human carcinogen.

Is this warning, so that the Chinese don’t have to take responsibility?
