About a year ago, NASA first reported seeing a cigar-shaped asteroid that looks like one of the alien spaceships from the movie Independence Day.
Plenty of scientists have been keeping an eye on this thing because it’s the first interstellar object to enter our solar system from another part of the galaxy.
And now some scientists from Harvard think it’s possible that the asteroid is actually an alien spacecraft.
They point out that it sped up when it got closer to the sun, which means it could be using light as fuel to propel it through space. It got more light when it got close to the sun. Therefore, it went faster.
Right now, it’s out there, cruising at a speed of 200,000 miles per hour. And hopefully, the aliens controlling it aren’t looking to land on Earth and conquer us all. (NBC News)
