Metric or English units?

There was a guess it was a 'Stiletto' ICBM test fragment, which would
be consistent with the less-than-seared-and-melted appearances.


With slot headed screws it can't be all that new (yes I know it's Russia but even they must have gone to socket heads by now?) and is unlikely to have been made to go into space for the same reason.Wouldn't all the fastenings on anything that leaves the ground have some sort of locking device such as tab washers or be wired to each other?


Very good point -- can we find some close-out photos of real spacecraft on line somewhere?

First obsevation - not enough damage visable to have fallen a great distance.

Second - bottom left hand of picture (with lady standing next to it) shows where it was cut from, or something has been cut from it with an acetelyne torch.

Yep flat head screws defiantly rule out anything alien. Looks like a pressurised cylinder of some sort. Probably industrial.

Maybe it's a part of a Nazi UFO?

I'm curious what the explanation for that object is, I think it will turn out to be some industrial part and could also be an early April's fools-day hoax.

The first picture is a canopy like you would find over gas pumps.

Did this object do that damage?

It doesn't look like aluminum, but with it's size it's too light even for aluminum.

I can see why they are saying it is titanium.

Made from titanium and held together by flat head screws.

I'm not sure guys, I think someone may not be telling the truth!

After looking at the closeup pics there is no way it came from space. Nothing about it is aircraft grade.

It's interesting, but not from space.

There's more to this, there has to be.

I'm interested to see what they conclude it to be.

How do you know the aliens didn't reverse engineer some of our 1950's hardware store technology?

Here ya go... these are supposedly real space craft

I dunno I mean look at the piece of junk they supposedly sent to the Moon... just tin plates and pop rivets. How the HELL did that thing hold together let alone stand the pressure of a vacuum






Dang thing looks like it was a cardboard model Sheesh..

It sure looks like a first stage blast deflector, would be at the top of first stage and the second stage rocket would be seated on it. If it was a first stage, it would come back at terminal velocity, and not go through any ablation.

that's not anything, It's just a natural metal formation. There's no evidence it's from space and nobody admits making it so it must have grown that way naturally.
It's sort of like a titanium mushroom,

Perhaps it is a microwave dish as found on tall towers--not seen so much in the US anymore. Note that the slanted side walls suggest a signal was focused from the apparent dish into a narrower beam as it exited.

If found in Russia, we can assume it is Russia. And, right, it is not aircraft or space grade construction or else the Russians are really getting sloppy. Note the white spacers between the two pieces of the socket/clamps.

If it came from east of the Russian launch sites, it is a piece of their own equipment that never made it into space and that can explain why it doesn't show any heat stress from a high-speed entry from an orbit.

I see a giant Prozac capsule end. What better way to drug the masses, pop a HUGE pill. How's the crime rate in that town? Xenongod

This is the main propellant tank of the second stage of a Delta 2 launch vehicle which landed near Georgetown, TX, on 22 January 1997. This weighed approximately 250 kg.

It appears to be awfully lightweight although I'm not clear on how titanium is compared to aluminum. Either way, that's got to be worth some money just as scrap. You would think the owners would want it back. I've never seen that design of reinforcement before on anything. Good find, OP. Very interesting.

Oh COME ON! This is obviously CGI! Just look at those fake shadows! See how the reflection doesn't match the sunlight??

Kidding


Yes, it looks like space junk to me... there's a helluva lot of it up there.

I bet some backwoods Russian farmer is scratching his head wondering what happened to his vodka still -- cause when those things blow up, they blow up real good !!
