Mysterious Objects Found on Australian Beach Spark Theories of Chandrayaan-3 Debris

Mysterious debris has washed up on a beach in Jurien Bay, Western Australia, causing intrigue among locals and on social media. The Australian Space Agency shared a photo on Twitter, revealing what appears to be a fragment of a “foreign space launch vehicle.” Officials have warned beach-goers to avoid the debris due to potential hazards. The discovery was made by residents who used their four-wheel drive to bring the unusual object ashore after spotting it floating at the water’s edge in Green Head, a coastal town north of Perth.

Speculation about the origin of the object has sparked online discussions. Some theories suggest a possible link to the Chandrayaan-3 mission, which was visible from Australia on July 14. However, the debris is heavily covered in marine life, including algae and goose barnacles, which typically takes longer than three days to accumulate. Other rumours propose it may be a component of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), another Indian rocket. There have even been unfounded suggestions connecting the debris to the MH370 flight that disappeared in 2014.

Aviation expert Geoffrey Thomas believes the object could be a fuel tank from a rocket that landed in the Indian Ocean. However, he dismisses any connection to MH370, stating that the debris does not match any part of a Boeing 777, and its condition does not align with the nine-and-a-half-year absence of the missing flight.
