A Chinese satellite returning to Earth demolished a villager's home just minutes after she had left the building. The satellite landed in Sichuan province, plunging through the roof of the four-floor building. Photographs in state media showed the two-meter-long, kettle-shaped object lying amid the rubble of the house. The capsule had spent 18 days in orbit collecting scientific data. "The satellite landed in our home. Maybe this means we'll have good luck this year," the tenant of the wrecked building was quoted as saying.
