The narrator was talking about a nose cone. I was an edit mistake I guess

There were also "data pods" that were tossed off of some ballistic missile tests that had the same shape.

I think it was very possibly one of the two RVX-1 re-entry vehicles recovered in 1959 during the Thor-Able Phase 2 tests from Cape Canaveral. RVX-4 re-entry vehicles ejected cylindrical data capsules.
