A Chinese Space Station has been circling earth for seven years now. It's been slowing down and very soon it's going to fall from orbit and plummet towards earth. Most of it will burn up but there's a very small chance some of it will survive the searing heat of re-entry and crash. (A very small chance.)

No space debris has ever hit a human being EXCEPT Lottie Mae Williams. Twenty years ago in Tulsa Oklahoma, Lottie Mae went for an early morning walk and saw a bright flash of light streak across the sky. A few minutes later, she thought someone was tapping her on the shoulder - but it was a piece of fiberglass from a Delta Rocket!

That's the story of the only human ever hit by a rocket.

The Chinese Satellite will pass over Utah at 8:30 tomorrow morning.
