cast aluminium

The Skylab space station, launched and operated by NASA, orbited the Earth from 1973 to 1979. It included a workshop and a solar observatory. In 1979 Skylab fell out of it's orbit and entered into an uncontrolled descent back to Earth. It broke up on re-entry and much of the debris landed across South Western Australia.
