NASA confirmed Monday than an object that hit a Florida home was debris from the International Space Station. NASA said it analyzed the object that fell through the roof of a home in Naples, Florida, in March and concluded it was part of a battery cargo pallet that was discarded from the station in 2021. That pallet reentered in March, and the path and timing of the debris corresponded with the debris that hit the Florida home. The debris was made of the metal alloy Inconel and weighted about three-quarters of a kilogram.
