What do you think it is...huh? Photo at link.


NACOGDOCHES, Texas -- Police say low water levels at a Texas lake during the drought have led to recovery of a container-like object that could be from space shuttle Columbia.

The shuttle broke apart and burned in February 2003, scattering remnants over East Texas.

Nacogdoches police on Monday announced recovery of the item, described as about 4 feet in diameter and "full of mud." Police say the piece was found in an isolated part of Lake Nacogdoches.

Sgt. Greg Sowell says the lower water level has exposed a larger than normal area on the north side of the lake. Sowell says a large, round object became visible and it's very possible that the item was part of Columbia.

Police have notified NASA and provided photos. Any shuttle pieces are government property.

My first guess was that it may perhaps be a piece of Columbia, right where the tail fin meets the... exhaust, I guess you can say? Sorry, not familiar with proper names of a space shuttle's parts.


That above is an old image of Columbia found with a basic Google search.


Then again, maybe not. Judging by another photo of it at a different angle, it looks way different than the object found.



It's definitely not the nose, the nose is black!


As I write this, I am having a major case of Deja Vu...



As for the video, they look like balls of sand, not solid objects.

Nasa claims it in this article...


NASA confirms debris found in ETX lake is section of Columbia

NACOGDOCHES, COUNTY, TX - NASA has confirmed to CNN that an object found in Lake Nacogdoches is a section of space shuttle Columbia, according to a Kennedy Space Center spokesperson.

"It's one of ours," said Lisa Malone.

Malone said the piece is a power reaction storage and distribution tank from the shuttle. It's about 4 feet in diameter. The tanks provided power and water for shuttle missions.

NASA was informed by authorities last week they had found possible shuttle debris in the lake.

NASA is in contact with Nacogdoches Police to try to determine a recovery plan.

"We're looking into whether will send a team out or local authorities can do it," Malone said.

Malone said the plan is to get the tank back to KSC where the rest of Columbia's debris is stored

"Once a year someone in Texas will find a piece of something, they think is Columbia debris," Malone said.

The last debris recovered was a year ago. Columbia remains are stored in the vehicle assembly building at KSC.

That thing really reminds me of something else posted here on ATS within the last few days. Can't remember what it was or what thread though.

See, the 4 feet in diameter helps sum it up a bit better...

But really, how can people trust what NASA has to say lately? How do we know it's not just another cover-up?

Seems like an entirely separate matter to me.

Not to mention that video is clearly edited and toyed with.

ETA: Got the link to load finally. I apologize, this is obviously a related incident and a much higher quality photo than the video. That said, while this may be debris, the others appear to be rocks. Highly edited rocks.

One guy had a piece of a spacecraft or something float up on his property from the ocean.

Does that sound familiar?

Probably an old ocean depth mine of some sort.

I say that NASA needs to buy it if they want it!


Claiming it as part of the shuttle seems unlikely since another has been found elsewhere in the world; it also appears to have already hatched!

But...it's in a lake. Would they use those in a lake? IDK.

What would really be gross is if you found one of the astronaut's helmets with their charred skull still inside it. I don't know how much of the remains were found during the initial search, so I assume it's possible.

Extraterrestrial probes. Either shot down or crashed.

It's MINE...and you can't touch it....



"We want to remind everyone that the rules are the same as they were back in 2003. If this object is indeed a part of the shuttle, it is government property, and it is a criminal offense to tamper with it." said Sgt. Greg Sowell of the Nacogdoches Police Department.

CNN's Dave Alsup contributed to this report.


I say grab it a sell it on Ebay....
