However, an old rocket booster finding would merely be considered ‘space junk’ and join the 57,000-plus pieces of human debris currently being tracked by various entities.

One astronomer’s space ‘trash’ is a vintage space collector’s treasure? You decide. You can watch more on NASA’s Surveyor missions below:...

Skylab reached Earth in the early morning hours of July 12, 1979, falling in pieces in the small town of Esperance, Australia, a remote spot seven-and-a-half hours away from Perth by car. ... The town of Esperance issued a $400 fine to the United States for littering.

TheDoomsday Machine...

” The device cannot be deactivated, as it is programmed to explode if any such attempt is made. When the President’s wheelchair-bound scientific advisor, the former Nazi German Dr. Strangelove, points out that such a doomsday machine would only be an effective deterrent if everyone knew about it, de Sadeski replies that the Soviet Premier had planned to reveal its existence to the world the following week.”
