Hubble Telescope Discovers UFO

Space telescope snaps a photo of an unidentified object in space.

US, February 2, 2010 - Break out the Romulan ale and start perfecting your best Cylon walk, the aliens are coming to town, and they are PISSED! Okay, that might be jumping the gun a little, but a recent discovery by Hubble of an unknown flying object in space has the scientific community puzzled as to just what exactly the projectile might be. Never-before-seen asteroid or Geth warship? Oh, the possibilities.

Hubble first detected the X-shaped object in late January and clocked it at 11,000mph. Dubbed P/2010-A2, experts think that what they're looking at could be a comet that was produced out of the collision of two asteroids, even though the object is exhibiting behavior that researchers have never seen before in comets.

"This is quite different from the smooth dust envelopes of normal comets," said UCLA investigator David Jewitt. "The filaments are made of dust and gravel, presumably recently thrown out of the nucleus. Some are swept back by radiation pressure from sunlight to create straight dust streaks. Embedded in the filaments are co-moving blobs of dust that likely originated from tiny unseen parent bodies."
