Tiangong-1, China' s experimental space lab, reentered the Earth's atmosphere at around 8:15 a.m. on Monday, China Manned Space Engineering Office (CMSEO) said.
It re-entered in the central region of the South Pacific, the CMSEO said.
The space lab was mostly burnt up in the atmosphere, according to the monitoring and analysis of the Beijing Aerospace Control Center and relevant organizations.
Tiangong-1 was launched on Sept. 29, 2011 and ended service in March 2016 after completing its mission. It has docked with Shenzhou-8, Shenzhou-9 and Shenzhou-10 spacecraft, and undertaken a series of tasks, making important contributions to China's manned space cause.
Backgrounder: Tiangong-1: pioneer of China' s space station
China's experimental space lab, Tiangong-1, has been mostly burned up as it reentered the Earth's atmosphere on Monday, but its life as a pioneer of China's future space station is memorable.
Its name Tiangong-1, or "Heavenly Palace-1," speaks for a dream home the Chinese have long envisioned in the sky. The main task of the Tiangong-1 was to test the technologies in rendezvous and docking between spacecraft, and to accumulate experience for developing a space station.
