How about a different kind of contest–one that will test your predictive and science skills?

The Aerospace Corporation’s Center for Orbital and Reentry Debris Studies is sponsoring a guessing game about the upcoming death day of an unoccupied Chinese space lab known as Tiangong-1.  According to the CORDS website, the uncrewed Chinese space lab is due for a fiery reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere in mid-March 2018, plus or minus two weeks.

If you choose the correct day, or if you’re closer than anyone else, you’ll win some great prizes from The Aerospace Corporation Center.  Just download the link at the beginning of this article.  Good luck.
