NASA confirmed that debris from the space station fell into a house in the US

An object that fell from the sky and crashed into an American’s home has been confirmed to be a piece of debris ejected from the International Space Station (ISS), NASA announced on Monday.

The bizarre incident occurred in Naples, Florida, when Alejandro Otero discovered the fallen object on March 8. The timing and location of the event aligned with official predictions about a fragment of a space cargo platform carrying old batteries that was jettisoned from the ISS in 2021.

NASA collected the debris from Otero’s house for analysis and confirmed that it was a stanchion of NASA flight support equipment used to place the batteries on the charging platform. The object, made of the metal alloy Inconel, weighs 0.7 kilograms and measures 10 centimeters in height and 4 centimeters in diameter.

The space agency also stated that they would investigate how the debris survived the atmospheric re-entry without total destruction and update their engineering models accordingly.

“NASA remains committed to operating responsibly in low Earth orbit and mitigating as much risk as possible to protect people on Earth when space hardware must be released,” a NASA spokesperson said.

The incident serves as a reminder of the potential dangers of space debris and the importance of responsible operations in space.
