Skylab fell back to Earth on 11 July 1979 and while most of it fell into the sea, quite a bit of the debris rained down on the Western Australian town of Esperance and surrounding areas. Most of the pieces were found on a 160km wide strip of land between the Perth-Adelaide highway and the Indian Pacific railway line.

Why was Skylab abandoned?

It wasn't intentionally abandoned. It was originally thought that the Space Shuttle would be operational before Skylab fell to earth. The Space Shuttle would then raise Skylab into a higher orbit to be used by multiple Space Shuttle crews, but an overabundance of solar flares caused Skylab to fall to earth 2 years before it normally would have. Delays in the development of the Space Shuttle spelled the demise of Skylab.

Why did skylab fall back to earth?

it fell on earth because back then we didn't do the extra boost they sometimes do now. The ISS now hovers around the earth and the gravitational force keeps it down like it does to the moon. But over time, it gets lower and lower. The correct altitude is 248 miles. Now its 220 and they are going to send a fuel supply to boost it up to its normal altitude. Back then they didnt do the boost therefore it fell

Why do spacecraft launced from Earth need to reach a specific speed to escape Earth's surface?

More speed means more energy. A certain amount of energy is required to get away from Earth. At a lesser speed, it will simply fall back to Earth.More speed means more energy.

What happened to Skylab?

It crashed back to Earth. Pieces of debris rained into the expected spot on Earth. When satellites grow too old to be useful they are brought down from orbit so they burn up in the upper atmosphere and are destroyed. SkyLab was brought down from orbit the same way but it was so large and so heavy it was not completely destroyed in the upper atmosphere. Skylab fell back to Earth on 11 July 1979 and while most of it fell into the sea, quite a bit of the debris rained down on the Western Australian town of Esperance and surrounding areas.

What is skylab?

Skylab was a space station launched and operated by NASA (the space agency of the United States) and was the U.S.'s first space station. Skylab orbited the Earth from 1973 to 1979, and included a workshop, a solar observatory, and other systems. It was inhabited by 3 different crews. The Skylab 1 crew (Pete Conrad, Paul Weitz, Joe Kerwin) was launched on May 23, 1973. They were charged with repairing the solar array panel that was damaged during launch. They also installed an umbrella on the outside of Skylab to keep the vehicle from overheating. Within days they were working on their experiments. Skylab 1 spent a total of 28 days in space. Each of the 3 Skylab crews set records for duration in space. The Skylab 2 crew (Alan Bean, Jack Lousma, Owen Garriott) launched July 28, 1973. They spent 59 1/2 days performing solar and earth studies from space. The Skylab 3 crew (Gerald Carr, Bill Pogue, Ed Gibson) launched on November 16, 1973 and spent 84 days working in Skylab. The last cew left Skylab on February 8, 1974. Skylab was destroyed when it reentered earth's atmosphere on July 11, 1979.
