US Space Rocket Debris Found in the Sea off Scilly

A large chunk of an American space rocket has been found in the sea off the Isles of Scilly.

The section of the spacecraft, measuring about 10m (32ft) by 4m (13ft), was spotted on the surface between Bryher and Tresco.

Coastguards believe it is from the unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 which exploded after take-off in Florida in June.

However many astronomers believe it is from a different mission due to the size and markings.

Local boatmen towed the section to Tresco where it has now been removed from the beach.
