NASA has verified that the unidentified object that crashed into a Florida home's roof originated from a space station.

,- NASA has verified that the unexplained object that fell through the roof of a Florida house last month was, in fact, a piece of space debris that came from equipment that was thrown away at the International Space Station.
On March 8, a cylindrical item made a spectacular entrance into a Naples house, confusing the locals. It was then taken for a thorough examination to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

The item recognized by NASA as a metal support was formerly used to place outdated batteries on a cargo pallet for disposal. Some of the pallet survived even though it was thrown off the space station in 2021 with the intention of burning up completely when it reentered Earth's atmosphere.

Standing 4 inches (10 centimeters) tall and about 1 1/2 inches (4 centimeters) wide, the metal fragment weighed 1.6 pounds (0.7 kilograms).

After learning of the damage done, homeowner Alejandro Otero, who was on vacation at the time, described his horror. When Otero got home early to check on things, he saw the object had broken through the roof and the floors.

When Otero thought back on the experience, he was grateful that nobody was hurt and he was amazed by the strange occurrence. Shaking, that is what I was. It all seemed so unbelievable to me. What are the odds that anything could fall on my house with such force and do such damage?" he questioned. "That nobody was injured makes me very happy."
