A worrying and anomalous situation is being experienced on a farm in New South Wales in Australia, as the possible fall of a piece of SpaceX.
The Australian Space Agency is doing the analysis of this space debris, or this possible debris that fell from beyond the stratosphere.
Brad Tucker, an astrophysicist at the Australian National University, received a call last Thursday from Mick Miners and Jock Wallace, two sheep farmers in the town of Dalgety, who reported finding a charred object.
According to Tucker, who traveled to the area to observe everything:
“My first impression was that it looked like a burned tree… and then you get up close to it, it’s almost like this alien obelisk. I knew without a doubt that this was a very real incident and a very real piece sticking out of the ground because it was made of composite materials designed to withstand heat, including fire-retardant woven carbon for insulation. In addition, he showed clear signs of scorching due to re-entry.”
The debris is currently being assessed by the Australian Space Agency (ASA)
