    A Michigan woman said that a device launched by Samsung into space last week crash-landed on her rural property in Michigan on Saturday.

    The "Space Selfie" device, which the company said aimed to capture images “using a unique view of planet earth as the backdrop,” was found by Nancy Mumby-Welke and her husband on Saturday morning after they heard a loud crash outside their home in Gratiot County.

    As the couple investigated, she told NBC News, “We realized it had fallen from the sky. It looked like a satellite.”

    Samsung confirmed in a statement that the device “came back down to earth,” though the company described its descent as an “early soft landing in a selected rural area” that was “planned” because of weather conditions in the United States.
