Great Space Ball Mystery SOLVED

It was hailed as a doomsday device, an instrument from a weather balloon or proof that extra terrestrial life existed.

But the mysterious metal sphere fell to the ground in a remote area of northern Namibia has now been identified as a hydrazine tank from an unmanned rocket, commonly used in satellite launches.

When the 13lbs, 14 inch ball smashed to earth in mid- November it sparked a national security issue with the Namibian authorities asking NASA for help in identifying it.
A commentator for Gawker wrote on the website: 'For anyone wondering what it actually is, it's likely a 39-litre hydrazine bladder tank (based on its apparent size; there are also much larger hydrazine tanks)

'They're used on unmanned rockets for satellite launches, which would explain why they're falling down in such a specific geographic footprint.'

When the ball fell it caused a crater 12 inches deep and 13ft wide, although it was found some 60ft away.

Locals claimed to have heard several explosions in the days before it was discovered by a farmer on his land.
Police forensics director Paul Ludik said that the ball was discovered a month ago but was only made public this week. Whilst it was made of a ‘sophisticated material’, it was something that was known to mankind.

He explained that the explosion heard by locals could have been the sonic boom when it broke the sound barrier coming down to Earth, or by the impact on the ground.

The compound appeared to be a ‘metallic compound normally used in space vehicles,’ although he would not be surprised it it was actually from a normal aircraft.

Police deputy inspector general Vilho Hifindaka added that the sphere, which landed 480 miles from the Namibian capital Windhoek, did not pose any danger.

He said: ‘It is not an explosive device, but rather hollow, but we had to investigate all this first’.

It was never a mystery. Journalists could have easily found out what it was but a 'mystery' sells papers and people click on that shit.
Internet people found out what it was in 5 seconds.

There is already a thread on this:

9 out of 10 green AIDS monkeys agree that this thread has major fail. First of all there is already a thread about the 'mystery spheres' (i posted the link in my first post) ~ it's been on the 1st page of news since it was created ~ easy to find eh. Secondly the mystery of the spheres was solved about 3 days ago when the original thread went up so this 'new' thread was redundant before it even existed.

Also: AIDS
