Half the world warned 'Chinese space station will fall on you'

I was ranting to a friend about this today...

It's not just the NZ Herald, there was also some American rag (edit: I guess it was probably Newsweek) claiming that it was going to "land" on them. And no doubt several others that I didn't see.

Its orbital inclination is 42.75°. A lot of the world's population lives between 42.75°N and 42.75°S, so there should be plenty of "please let it fall on us!" articles from everywhere.

Thank you once again Reg for not being idiots about it, like "everyone else."
