I just don't recommend eating anything off of it.



Unless your name is Joe Dirt.

I repost my post from another thread (in Aliens & UFOs discussion forum)

Space junk falls in Outback Aus! [pics]



Brisbane Planetarium curator Mark Rigby was asked to examine the ball-shaped item by staff at a Charleville school after the owner of a nearby farm discovered it in a field on November 7.

He said there was "no doubt" the object, named 2006-047-C, was a helium or nitrogen tank from a rocket that had probably been used to blast a US solar satellite into space more than 18 months ago.


I looked at what had been coming down around that time and orbits and things like that and managed to narrow the time frame based on when the farmer found it.

This particular object was predicted for re-entry (into the Earth's atmosphere) at 11.47am Australian Eastern Standard time on November 1st, which would have put it near Indonesia.

I don't know why, but I think it has just sort of limped on a bit and ended up in Charleville.

You would think if it fell from space there would be somewhat of an impact ding + debris where it was found. I doubt that photo is the original location if it is space junk.

Hey, i trust you, heck!

Well, i've based my calculation on the timestamp (set to my local time)

Perhaps there's some issue with the timestamp:
I remember that you have pointed it out, here
www.abovetopsecret.com...
so probably there's something wrong with the timestamp.

In the original article with the Aussie Farmer, he say's that there is an impact on a tree stump just alittle ways away from the debris. So it did fall but from where and how high up?

In my modest opinion, I would say that it is a COPV, or composite overwrapped pressure vessel. Links are here NASA Article, Scroll Down and here NASA Presentation in PDF

In essence, COPVs have become very widely used as pressure vessels due to their lightweight design, and proven durability in relation to aerospace applications. Due simply to the widespread use of these both in rocketry and satellites, it is highly likely to see these falling to earth more often.

In regards to the questions regarding how it could have survived its descent, I'll add this.

Most forms of carbon fiber are composites, but in general have a melting point well over 2000 degrees. An object simply falling from orbit will experience a reentry temperature of around 1260 degrees. The energy from the COPVs descent will be a factor of its weight and speed, which is modified of course by its surface area. So a lightweight, hollow container could easily survive reentry and descent with the degree of damage shown in these pictures. As for why scientists aren't rushing to Australia or Brazil to examine these objects, I would say it's simply because they looked at the picture and said "Huh. Another COPV." Due to the large numbers of nations and companies putting objects into orbit every year, there exists large amounts of garbage in unstable orbits. Eventually, like the dutiful children they are, they return home. Link is Discover article, Scroll Down

Honestly though, this doesn't make me feel better. I remember reading a sci-fi story when I was younger about how the growing amount of space trash strands humanity for all time on Earth, because every attempt we make to leave the planet is destroyed by our self-made space-shotgun. When oh when will we learn to think about our children's children? Not looking like any time soon friends... not soon at all.
