According to the following USA Today article, the Tiangong-1 is set to crash to earth on April Fools. Sounds like pretty exciting stuff, if you ask me.
As a matter of fact… here is some of the sweet, sweet pre-roll video footage provided to us directly from that exact same USA Today article. It’s pretty legit.
With that said, I challenge anyone to show me a real photo of the Tiangong-1 in deep space. All you are going to find is either CGI, cartoons, or miniature models. The thing that I find funniest about it is that none of these illustrations or models seem to show the exact came craft. They are all modified in one way or another.
April Fools… it’s real.
