Canberra: A mysterious thing of copper was washed up on a remote shore of Australia, which is believed to be the debris of an Indian rocket. Members of the defense force and other government and central agencies will be called to identify the heavy cylinder. Australian National University astrophysicist Brad Tucker warned that the object could be a rocket fuel tank that could prove dangerous.

- Speculations on social media that the copper object lying on the coast of Australia fell from the launch of Chandrayaan-3
A citizen saw the cylinder washed up on a beach near Green Head, 250 km from Perth, on Sunday. My rule with ‘space junk’ is don’t touch it unless you know what you’re doing. Fuel is usually carcinogenic, so it is important to be careful’, says Dr. Tucker told The Age.
There are speculations about this object that it could be a fallout from Chandrayaan launched by India. Notably, India’s LVM-3 launched Chandrayaan was spotted in Australian skies as its path passed over it. There is speculation on social media that this object could be part of LVM-3.
When the American space station Skylab fell out of orbit in 1979, it became a media sensation and many speculated that it could cause damage to people and property.
