The wreckage of a SpaceX rocket that re-entered the atmosphere last week was found on an owner’s property in Central Washington state, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.
The 5-foot-long composite-wrapped pressure vessel came from the “second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket that did not have a desorb burn,” the National Weather Service said, according to Q13 FOX in Seattle.
The sheriff’s office said the landlord had no comment and wanted to be left alone.

The debris left a four-inch dent in the ground, but no other damage has been reported, according to KOMO-TV in Seattle.
SpaceX has since recovered the pressure vessel, which KOMO reported would have contained pressurized helium.
