Europe's first Automated Transfer Vehicle named Jules Verne, has successfully completed its mission delivering fuel, water, oxygen, food, and other items to the International Space Station. The spacecraft was then sent on a destructive reentry path that let it break apart safely over an uninhabited part of the South Pacific.

You know, why can't they drop this trash in their own part of the world, say the Atlantic?

Leave the Pacific alone, for crying out loud.

We don't even have that much space or weapons debris in either the Atlantic or Pacific. One spacecraft isn't going to ruin the oceans, neither will a hundred.
