China's Tiangong-1 space station re-entered the earth's atmosphere and burnt up over the middle of the South Pacific on Monday, China's News Agency, Xinhua, has reported.

"The space lab re-entered the Earth's atmosphere at around 8:15 am local time (12:15 am GMT) and was mostly burnt up in the atmosphere," Xinhua quoted the China Manned Space Engineering Office, CMSEO, as saying.

Launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwest China on 29th September, 2011, Tiangong-1 was tasked to test the technologies in rendezvous and docking between spacecraft and to accumulate experience for developing a space station, Xinhua added.
