The Chinese Space Station is being deorbited as you read this. To track it live go to N2YO.com. You may notice that it's altitude drops when it's on the night time side of the world and increases in the sunlight. It only takes 93 minutes for it to orbit the earth so you will see it continue this up and down orbit for a while. Right now it's at about 255 miles above the earth. If I remember correctly once its altitude gets to around 100 miles above the earth it should start to descend rapidly. And then...DUCK!

Maybe the X37 or some other satellite gave it a push or they just didn't manage to control calculations for orbital deployment?

Weird that after the first one they didn't learn something from it?

I think this was planned. It was small, for a space station, and they were done with it. I think they are moving on to a multi-module station next. Bigger than their last 2, but still way smaller than the ISS.
