    It's actually Apple's way of launching the new Iphone 5, they have arranged for it to drop a box of Iphone's at each store on the way through

    ^^^^ you right. I didn't think of that. I wonder, there must be some patented parts there, so be careful don't go selling on eBay something that belongs to Jobsy.
    NASA stuff is ok.

    "If you do come across what you suspect is a satellite piece, NASA doesn't want you to pick it up. The space agency says there are no toxic chemicals present, but there could be sharp edges. Also, it's government property. It's against the law to keep it as a souvenir or sell it on eBay. NASA's advice is to report it to the police."

    Screw that, if it lands in my yard Im considering that as abandoned property and claiming salvage rights. Mine now lol

    If said satellite landed on my home it remains government property until hole is fixed.
    If said satellite landed in my yard it is mine, just like a football the neighborhood kids lost.
    If said satellite landed in my yard it is mine, I have gloves, I have an eBay id, I have good ole gumption.
