Please Be The Mothership: Astronomers Discover Previously Unheard-Of Type Of Space Object
These are two pictures taken from the Hubble Space Telescope showing what astronomers believe to be a previously unseen kind of space object. It's described as 'a rotating asteroid with six comet-like tails'. I describe it as a spaceship. One that's going to come rescue me then blow up the planet. "Take me too?" Sorry, but they said I could only bring one guest and I plan on stretching out across both seats (it might be a long ride).
According to lead investigator David Jewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles, "we were literally dumbfounded when we saw it [in the solar system's asteroid belt] We were completely knocked out."
NASA says that "unlike all other known asteroids, which appear simply as tiny points of light, this asteroid, designated P/2013 P5, resembles a rotating lawn sprinkler. Astronomers are puzzled over the asteroid's unusual appearance."
Damn, why can't it be a spaceship? Wouldn't it be cool if a spaceship really did appear in the sky? Then, for a brief moment, the whole world would stop squabbling about all the bullshit that we do and unite with a common cause: to blast that f***er out of the sky then fight and kill each other over all the alien technology that rains down to earth.
Thanks to TheAmberAmazon and Paul, who haven't given up hope that in our lifetime we will make alien contact, and they will forgive us for being such a shitty species.
