Luck can give you $10,000 !

1- When the US space station Skylab crashed in Australia, the municipality fined the US for littering!!

2- In 1979, pieces of the US space station Skylab fell from the sky and littered the Australian municipality of Esperance. The craft had broken apart over the Indian Ocean.

3- Esperance fined the United States $400 for littering! It wasn’t until 2009 that they were paid, though. A radio show host, Scott Barley, raised the money from his listeners and paid the fine on behalf of NASA.

4- The San Francisco Examiner offered $10,000 to the first person to bring them pieces of the Skylab.

5- A 17 year old from Esperance scooped some scraps of the Skylab from his roof and took the first flight to San Francisco where he collected his prize!
