SpaceX Debris Lands on Australian Sheep Farm

A large piece of debris from a SpaceX spacecraft was found after it wedged itself into the ground at a sheep farm in Dalgety, New South Wales. Dr Brad Tucker, an astrophysicist and cosmologist from Mount Stromlo Observatory at the Australian National University, recorded footage of the unusual object. He called it the largest piece of space junk found in Australia since 1979. The Australian Space Agency confirmed the object came from a SpaceX mission. It was one of three pieces of debris found, the ABC said. The ABC said a large bang was heard across New South Wales on July 9 and that some speculated this could have been due to the re-entry of a spacecraft into Earth’s atmosphere. Mick Miners, the owner of the farm, said he found the object on July 25. Credit: Dr Brad Tucker via Storyful
