Australia: SpaceX capsule pieces crash in field

“When Mick Miners, a farmer in New South Wales, Australia, first saw a large black object sticking out of the ground in a remote part of his land, he thought it was a dead tree. But on closer inspection — and verification from experts — he learned it had fallen from space. The Australian Space Agency (ASA) later said it came from a SpaceX capsule. Experts described the discovery as ‘rare’ and ‘exciting’ — but said such events may become more common. The object landed on 9 July in a large area of fields, but was not discovered by Mr Miners until several weeks later. Two other pieces were later found nearby, and the ASA asked anyone who came across further items to contact a debris hotline set up by SpaceX.” (08/03/22)
