Fisherman finds rocket in the sea – and no-one has any idea how it got there

A group of fishermen have been left scratching their heads after they bizarrely found a massive part of a rocket ship while on the hunt for fish in the Irish Sea.

The group of fishermen from Cork, Ireland, were trawling for monkfish when they managed to haul the enormous rocketship part out of the sea.

When they found the part in February, they figured that the part belonged to the failed Virgin Orbit launch that took place in January.

But months after what appears to be some kind of rocket booster was fished out of the Irish Sea, no one has come forward to claim responsibility.

While Virgin warned Brits that the failed launch from Cornwall would result in debris falling across the southwest coast of Ireland, a spokespersontold the Irish Examinerthat the company had nothing to do with the February find.

“It’s definitely not LauncherOne – the exhaust valves aren’t right – and the satellites are CubeSats – much smaller than that,” they said.

“Also, at the time, Virgin Orbit confirmed the telemetry indicated that LauncherOne stayed on its course throughout its flight, within the safety zone over water west of Africa – so travelled way beyond Irish waters."

Similarly, a spokesperson for Cork City Council said: “Part of an engine recovered by an Irish fishing vessel during routine fishing operations has been brought into Keelbeg pier.

“Cork County Council has advised the relevant authorities and does not have any further information at this time.”

The only clue that has reared its head so far is that the rocket part appears to have been made by engine manufacturer Aerojet Rocketdyne which is based in Sacramento, California and describes itself as “at the centre of defence and discovery.”

The company exports to customers all around the world providing propulsion and energetics, missile defence, and strategic, tactical missiles and armaments.

However the company did not provide any details of the launch in which the debris was a part of after being approached.
