I think it is the case that if you only have a hammer everything looks like a nail. Someone should have been thinking outside the box.
I am guessing the missile hit the package under the balloon as opposed to the balloon, which would have blown the pieces to bits. Again a balloon hit would have left bigger pieces to recover.
I do not understand shooting it down with a missile.They should have put a single shot through the balloon. Either it would pop, and the whole thing would drop like a rock into the ocean, or the leak could be slow enough to make it drop slower than a rock.
