The so-called Spacecraft Cemetery is a remote area in the Pacific Ocean, southeast of New Zealand, thousands of miles from the nearest land.
It is where defunct spaceships are sent hurtling to their deaths.
The remote and untraveled area was chosen to insure that no one would be harmed by falling space debris.
But, of course, “remote and untraveled” refers only to human traffic.
After reading the article below, I started to wonder what the burial of a spacecraft would be like for the ocean’s inhabitants. And so wrote the words below.
Afterward, I started to wonder when — and for what reason — the beliefs we have of our world might be similarly blown apart.
