A Piece of SpaceX Rocket Discovered on a Breton Island

Local News

A piece of a SpaceX rocket was found stranded on the Breton island of Quéménès, off Finistère. It could come from a ship that supplies the ISS.

For a surprise, it’s a big surprise. The new tenants of the island of Quéménès, off Finistère , discovered on Wednesday 11th April, what seems to be a piece of a  SpaceX rocket of billionaire Elon Musk .

The farmer couple, who recently settled on the Breton island, posted on their Twitter account images of their incredible discovery. “Sea bathtub? Flying saucer ? Amelie Goosens, who has been living with her companion Etienne Menguy for a while on this deserted island, recalls humorously, says Ouest-France .

The object, found failed, is a hollow cone of 2.50 meters in diameter and 1.30 in height. If the couple first thought of a race boat, they discovered by observing the object more closely a small plate on which appears the mention SpaceX. An inscription they found in another place of the object.

SpaceX is the name of the American company, founded in 2002 by billionaire Elon Musk, who works on spaceflight and astronautics.



On Twitter, some netizens point out that it could be, according to them, the nose of the Dragon capsule, a space cargo ship used to refuel the International Space Station. What could confirm the inscription “nose cone” found on the machine.

To be clear, the couple even mentioned on Twitter Elon Musk himself.

Meanwhile, the tenants of Quéménès towed the space object in their garden. As if living on a desert island was not original enough!
