SpaceX Starship IFT-1 Debris Discussion/Updates
« on: 05/16/2023 03:07 pm »
Since alot of tiles have been popping up recently, I decided to create this threat for anyone who wants to post updates and discussions about any debris that may have washed up ( and on the sea floor ) after the IFT AFTS explosion.

hi! I am a 13 year old neurodivergent individual, although I can understand most things adults can too. I  have been interested in space since I was 5. Although I still have a lot to learn, I try my hardest to understand others, although sometimes I might not, so please correct me if I do not listen to others. thanks!

If you want to get in potential future legal trouble, then Ebay is the place for you!  ;)

If you do end up finding/buying tiles, although it can be a good souvenir, contact SpaceX at 1-866-623-0234, or message/email them at [email protected]. Any debris found can help SpaceX determine what they went through and how they survived.  :)

It is not my meaning to impugn or shame beachcombers or folks with various legal opinions here. But it seems kind to at least inquire with SpaceX about keeping particular instances their debris. What does SpaceX usually say about this?
I'd rather be here now

Dr. Phil Metzger is begging for crowdsourced help with acquiring some additional samples (specifically a sample of Fondag, and plain beach sand from the area) to further research the debris cloud of fine dust/sand particles observed during the 4/20 launch. Very interesting Twitter thread:

One of the dudes who puts up YT vids from around Starbase is advertising, on his site, pieces of the concrete debris for sale.  You pay based on how much a chunk weighs.

Not that I condone what that YouTuber is doing, but I ran the numbers a while ago based on his ebay sales, and estimated that he'd already earned $1,000 doing this by the middle of May. Not a bad hustle.
