(INTELLIHUB) — The Chinese Tiangong-1 space station splashed down to Earth in the South Pacific at 17,000 mph Sunday evening, narrowly missing Tahiti.

An analysis conducted by the Beijing Aerospace Control Center showed that the defunct craft mostly burnt up in the atmosphere during its descent.

The nine ton craft was approximately the size of a school bus and may have caused major damage if it hit a populated area.
