Could you imagine walking along the beach and seeing debris from a space shuttle on the shore? That's exactly what happened to the Reddit user who snapped these photos.

After posting these images online, it was discovered that this large piece of debris was actually from space.

Please... lets give the full correct information.
This part was found in Brazil and broadly noticed by our press.
This rocket piece is owned by the UK space agency and was launched by the Europe space association from the country of Guiana a french colony in the north of South America.
Was found in the state of Para, Brazil, by fishers in the middle of the amazon jungle not in the beach.

The problems are:
1 - Its not the 1st piece of space debris finded in the amazon florest (In the middle of land not sea).
2 - In that area (Amazonia) we have a lot of villages and cities (some larger than 1 Mio hab.).
3 - That richest countrys (than Brazil), dont want to talk about even admit those incidents occurred.

Is Brazil the the trash yard of the world? :62:
