A local photographer has shot a series of photographs showing pieces of SpaceX SN11 rocket scattered across Boca Chica after this past week’s tests launch, where the rocket had trouble landing and caught on fire.
Photographer Pedro De La Fuente accessed the area where he took the opportunity to see for himself the pieces of debris that fell from the ship, he also said that SpaceX staff were cleaning the area.
“From a distance, those metal sheets were shiny, [and] you could see a bunch of shiny things scattered all over the place,” De La Fuente said.
Texas Parks and Wildlife says their federal partner, the U.S. Fish, and Wildlife Service, is working with SpaceX to retrieve debris and “minimize impacts to wildlife.”
