Space X recovers dislodged parts from Grant County, Washington

Space X

GRANT COUNTY, Wash. — Residents of the Pacific Northwest were shocked last week as a streak of bright orange lights illuminated the sky on Thursday, March 25. Since then, it’s been confirmed that this occurrence was the result of a failed re-entry by a Space X rocket — Falcon 9.

Now, residents in Grant County were left to pick up the pieces. According to a Facebook post by the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, Space X officials recovered a “Composite-Overwrapped Pressure Vessel,” which is designed to contain fluids under high pressure like re-entry into the planet’s orbit.
