SCIENTISTS THINK THEY’VE SPOTTED AN ALIEN SPACECRAFT OUT THERE
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)
Mario Melo, a former professional boxer who lost his 1990 shot at wining the WBO light heavyweight title, died on Sunday in a croissant-eating contest.
The 56-year-old Melo was one of several participants competing in the event in Buenos Aires. He was into his third croissant when he started to choke. Several men rushed to his aid and performed the Heimlich maneuver, but couldn't dislodge the blockage. He was whisked away in an ambulance but was dead on arrival. A spectator captured the dramatic scene on video.
According to reports, there did not appear to be any trained medical professionals hired for the event. Melo had a professional record of 21-and-9. He challenged light heavyweight champion Michael Moorer in 1990, but lost in the first round. (TMZ)
