A piece of metal recovered from the sea off the Isles of Scilly in Britain on November 27, 2015. Debris from a U.S. rocket, perhaps the doomed SpaceX Falcon 9 CRS-7 which broke apart shortly after launch in June, has been recovered near the Isles of Scilly, off the coast of southwest England, according to the British coastguard.
Britain's Maritime and Coastguard Agency said in a statement that a piece of metal alloy was recovered with the help of a local boatman. It measured around 33 feet by 13 feet. One theory suggests that this piece of debris may be from an older CRS-4 rocket from Sept. 2014 ran than the CRS-7.
