SpaceX Rocket Debris Lands in Sheep Paddock
New South Wales 3 Aug (ONA) --- Three pieces of space debris have so far been found in the region, which are considered to be the biggest pieces found in Australia since 1979, The Australian Broadcasting corporation reported.
Two pieces were inspected by technical experts from the Australian Space Agency and New South Wales Police on Saturday.
Police have since confirmed they were also aware of the third piece being found in the region. The debris was confirmed to be from the SpaceX mission.
This comes after locals reported hearing a loud boom on July 9, which was considered to have been caused by the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft, which was launched in November 2020, re-entering Earth's atmosphere.
