    The Chinese are not in control of there space station and do not know where it will land.

    Chinese officials are no longer in control of the Tiangong-1 space station. Video provided by Newsy

    They say the rocket motors may not burn up on reentry,

    Shades of 1979, can they rename it Skylab II?

    Bad idea. Skylab made history by the first time having two nations met in space.
    There is nothing even near that can be said of Tiangong.
