Another chunk of space junk appears to have fallen on Saskatchewan farmland in western Canada.

Found on farmland on April 28, the recovered debris appears to be leftovers from the “trunk” of a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft.

A re-tracing of the ground track of the suspected SpaceX leftover goes right through Saskatchewan, above the Ituna-situated farm area, reports Harvard re-entry specialist Jonathan McDowell, as reported by Canada’s CTV broadcasting network.

Similarly, in July 2022, bits from an unpressurized trunk of a Dragon spacecraft – discarded prior to spacecraft re-entry – were found in Australian outback.
