SpaceX missile crashed at Alam Farm

SpaceX missile crashed at Alam Farm

Debris from a SpaceX missile fell on a ranch in downtown Washington, local authorities reported Friday – about a week after debris from the missile, which many declared as “meteor stars”, fell in the northwestern United States.



According to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, the recovered item belongs to the second stage of the Falcon 9 missile, which was launched on March 4 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida in connection with the Starlink mission.

It is a 1.5 meter long component, called COPV, that is, a hyperfilled compound pressure vessel. It left a trail of about 10-13 inches with impact on the ground, as it turns out. COPVs are used to store helium to pressurize the fuel tanks in the upper section of the Falcon 9.
