Piece of SpaceX rocket fell on a farm in Australia

A three-meter fragment of a SpaceX rocket fell on a farm in the Australian state of New South Wales. Pieces of space debris discovered by farmer Mick Miners.

According to the man, at first, there was a loud sound, and when he decided to check its cause, he saw an unknown object in his field. Australian National University space expert Brad Tucker considers that the debris found is part of the trunk of Elon Musk’s SpaceX Crew-1 rocket, which has been in space since November 2020, then deorbited and began to fall to Earth.

SpaceX assumed that the element would break up into smaller pieces and fall into the ocean. Another fragment was found by a neighbor, Miners. The expert noted that the fragment found could be donated to a museum or sold expensively on eBay, writes secretmag.ru.
