The “mysterious” cylindrical object found on a remote beach in eastern Australiaat the beginning of the month is a piece of debris from an Indian rocket: the Australian Space Agency has made it known.

It was initially speculated that the golden piece of metal was the wreckage of a Malaysian Airlines plane, crashed into the sea in 2014; more careful analyzes have shown that the debris belongs to an Indian spacecraft used to launch a polar satellite.

In the press release released today, the Australian Agency explained that it is in contact with Isro, the Indian space research organisation, with which it is evaluating the next steps, according to the 1968 United Nations agreement, which provides that space wrecks return to the country that owns them.
