Where does space stuff go after it dies? To this spot deep, deep in the Pacific ocean. In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the Spacecraft Cemetery, an oceanic dumping ground where spaceships go to die.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
