What appears to be the remains of a Soviet Union spacecraft launched more than 38 years ago was found today, Saturday, January 11th washed up on the beach a few miles north of San Pedro Town. Images posted on social media by island resident David Campos shows several large metal pieces from the spacecraft marked with Russian lettering. Based on the identifying marks, the remnants are believed to be from the Soyuz 40, which was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on May 14, 1981.

The Soyuz 40 mission was a 1981 Soviet crewed spaceflight and the final flight of the Soyuz 7K-T spacecraft. It was a collaboration between the Soviet Union and Romania.

2019 Russian Space Craft Shell Washes Up On Beach Of Ambergris Caye, Belize

I mean we’ve had unorthodox things was onto the beach on Ambergris Caye before. I sent a message to David Campos, the man who pulled the shell from the water to find out when I could take a look. We drove down to Indigo and found this.

So cool that the barnacles are in a square – around the ridge where there’s a hatch or panel. The first thing we noticed – it’s in SHOCKINGLY good shape if it had been in the ocean for over 30 years. The steel pieces are still basically shiny and….perfect. Fabric and foam still in good shape.
