SpaceX rocket debris found off Florida coast
<p> Debris from the <a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/forecast-good-for-sunday-spacex-launch-from-cape/33769198" target="_blank">SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that exploded</a> Sunday shortly after launch from Cape Canaveral has been located off the Florida coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said.</p><p> [RELATED: <a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/forecast-good-for-sunday-spacex-launch-from-cape/33769198" target="_self">SpaceX rocket explodes after launch</a> | WATCH: <a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/space-x-explosion/33816902" target="_blank">Explosion</a> | <a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/brevard-resident-captures-spacex-explosion-on-video/33817190" target="_blank">Home video</a>]</p><p> "The Coast Guard is working in close coordination with SpaceX and partner agencies to monitor the Falcon 9 debris field currently located more than 150 miles off (Jacksonville)," authorities said.</p><p> SpaceX officials said in an update later Tuesday that the Dragon capsule did not survive impact after the Falcon 9 rocket broke up. SpaceX said that it is recovering "significant portions of debris."</p><p> To track the debris, the <a href="/news/coast-guard-drops-flares-into-spacex-rocket-debris-field/33867966" target="_blank">Coast Guard dropped flares</a> and a buoy into the debris field, which is 20 miles by one-half mile in size.&#160; Authorities cautioned boats in the area and asked the public to report any sightings of debris that might wash ashore.</p><p> "Currently, no impacts from debris are expected for Florida beaches, and authorities will continue to monitor for any changes to this estimate," the Coast Guard said.</p><p> &#8220;As with any incident involving spacecraft wreckage, debris should not be handled by members of the public,&#8221; said Capt. Jeffrey Dixon, commander of Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville.&#160; &#8220;These critical pieces of evidence are important in the investigation process and should be reported immediately to SpaceX or the U.S. Coast Guard."</p><p> The SpaceX debris recovery hotline is 866-392-0035.</p><p> </p><p> Flagler County authorities on Tuesday also asked residents to avoid any debris and call 911 if any washes ashore.</p><p> "While it is highly unlikely any of the debris resulting from the explosion of the SpaceX&#8217;s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon capsule will reach Flagler County&#8217;s coast, emergency officials are asking residents to steer clear of it and notify authorities," Flagler County said.</p><p> Variables that could cause a shift in the direction that the debris is drifting include wind, current, tides and the size of the debris.</p><p> &#8220;It is possible that debris could come ashore anywhere from the southeastern U.S. to the mid-Atlantic coastline,&#8221; according to the Coast Guard.</p><p> The <a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/forecast-good-for-sunday-spacex-launch-from-cape/33769198" target="_blank">rocket exploded</a> shortly after liftoff Sunday from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.&#160; The cause of the failure remains under investigation.</p><p> </p>

NASCAR offering flag exchange at Coke Zero 400
<p> NASCAR officials say fans will be allowed to fly Confederate flags in the infield during this weekend's Coke Zero 400.</p><p> But NASCAR is also giving fans a chance to exchange their Confederate flags for an American flag.</p><p> NASCAR said last week it would no longer support the flag at its races, but the organization also says it supports freedom of expression.</p><p> Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood says he believes the flag exchange is a good compromise.</p><p> "So fans who would like to fly the American flag, we'll trade with you with whatever flag you have, we want you to celebrate that flag this weekend, that's what important," Chitwood said. "We have to look at where that other flag goes, it has no place in our sport."<br/></p><p> Chitwood said Speedway officials plan to revisit its policy on Confederate flags, but wanted to allow them this weekend since fans have already purchased their tickets to the event.</p><p> <br/></p>
