Florida: Space Junk Nearly Kills Man After Tearing Through Roof

This is going to start happening more often.

The United States has filled outer space with junk. The biggest culprit is Elon Musk, who just fires up whatever trash for the sake of adding more garbage in space.

But at least he keeps Twitter clean of trash like racism and antisemitism.

New York Post:

A Florida man was nearly hit by a piece of space junk when a small metal object tore through the roof of his home.

Alejandro Otero’s son, who was not named, had been relaxing at home on March 8 when a small metal object — that may have been from the International Space Station — came crashing through his Naples house.

“It almost hit my son. He was two rooms over and heard it all,” Otero told Wink News. “I thought a meteorite.

I was shaking. I was completely in disbelief. What are the chances of something landing on my house with such force to cause so much damage,” Otero continued. “I’m super grateful that nobody got hurt.”

His home surveillance footage captured the sound of the object crashing through his home around 2:30 p.m.

NASA has collected the metal object, according to Ars Technica, and is determining its origin “as soon as possible.”

Garbage from space crashing through people’s roofs is sort of hilarious. But it’s also concerning, because it could happen to anyone at any time.
