China's space station will plummet back down to Earth TODAY: Spacecraft will burn up in the atmosphere before debris is scattered across the Pacific Ocean in 'planned destruction'

China's Tiangong-2 spacecraft is currently rapidly descending towards Earth after deliberately dropping out of Earth's orbit.

Its path back to Earth will be a destructive one as it is expected the spacecraft will burn up upon re-entry.

The space station, which means 'Heavenly body' in Chinese, will be destroyed at some point today, and any debris that survives re-entry will likely be harmlessly scattered throughout the Pacific ocean between New Zealand and Chile.
