Some of the booster probably burned up as it plummeted through Earth's atmosphere.

Reports indicate that parts of the rocket may have survived the fall

Ted Muelhaupt: "I've got no reason to dispute that it's pieces of this rocket".

He was a consultant for the Aerospace Corporation's Chief Engineer's Office.

came from the discarded trunk of a SpaceX Crew Dragon spaceship, which carried astronauts for NASA last year.
