NASA and SpaceX’s Crew-1 Dragon had debris that detached from the spacecraft and made its re-entry to the planet, and this piece fell in Australia and made a massive bang upon impact on the ground. The space debris is a massive piece of the spacecraft, particularly what an expert believed to be a part of the “unpressurized crew trunk” of the ship.

NASA, SpaceX’s Crew-1 Dragon Debris: Fell in Australia

In a tweet by an astrophysicist that recently returned from Dalgety, New South Wales, Australia, Brad Tucker said that he investigated a piece of space debris that fell in the middle of a sheep paddock. Here, the space debris that a sheep farmer, Mick Miner, found on his property is a massive three-feet long debris from the first crewed mission it delivered to the International Space Station.

The experts believe that it is NASA and SpaceX’s Crew-1 Dragon spacecraft’s debris that fell to the planet, and good thing it fell on an open area that did not have any residential houses nearby. The loud sound of the impact reached that of the far away areas that one would think would not reach its vicinity.

According to ABC News Australia, the impact sound was very loud that it alerted Miner and made him believe that it was debris from space.

Experts that looked into it confirmed that it is from SpaceX through its serial numbers.

No One was Hurt, Debris Larger Than a Person

The good thing is that no one was hurt in this incident, but it would have been fatal if it fell on the house or near an area where there were many people present in public. It is still unconfirmed what part of the spacecraft it is, with SpaceX not yet releasing any statements regarding the piece.

The debris is larger than a person’s and may potentially be hazardous for all.

SpaceX Debris: What Happens to It?

SpaceX said before that its Starlink satellites disintegrate without debris if it ever falls back to the planet, and it would not hurt anyone or damage any property if the space objects re-enter the planet unknowingly. Several space companies claim this would happen when their spacecraft falls, and not all ensure this for all.

There are significant worries regarding the many orbiting satellites from SpaceX that would be potentially dangerous when it re-enters the planet as it would be harmful to many. Not to mention its many satellites that orbit the planet daily and provide the world with a constellation of internet services.

However, Starlink’s satellites are safe as they disintegrate without any debris, as Musk originally said.

Not all spacecraft from SpaceX are safe for their re-entry to the planet, as one that came back brought a massive and intact piece from the cosmic heavens. The SpaceX Crew-1 Dragon debris that brought NASA Commercial Crew astronauts to the space station has a piece of it unintentionally detach and fall to Australia, now a significant phenomenon in the area.
