A few weeks ago, something from the heavens came crashing through the roof of Alejandro Otero's home, and NASA is on the case. In all likelihood, this nearly 2-pound object came from the International Space Station. Otero said it tore through the roof and both floors of his two-story house in Naples, Florida.

"But a series of delays meant this cargo pallet missed its ride back to Earth, so NASA jettisoned the batteries from the space station in 2021 to head for an unguided reentry"

IOW, they just threw the ---- out the window and let it land where it may.

An interesting keepsake, but much less lucrative than a bale of dope washing up on the beach (but that doesn't happen often on the Gulf side)...

Well, most of it was launched from Florida. It seems like a good place for it to land, as well.
