“The object found is not related to space technology. A final conclusion can be made after a detailed study of the object by experts,” said Roscosmos, theRussianspace agency.

Experts have also examined the object to determine whether it poses a hazard.

“We measured the radiation level near and inside the object. We found no radiation here,” said Yuri Bornyakov, who heads the rescue service department of the Kuybyshevsky district in the Novosibirsk region.

One think you know for sure. It is not part of a Chevy Volt. 1) They barely attain enough power to cross and intersection let alone go airborne,2) platicizers arn’t leaking form this thing, and 3) there are no plug in stations for oh......several thousand miles.

It might be part of the air force’s super secret Aurora aircraft - it could be a part that fell off during one of it’s super-duper secret recon missions!

They've got the shy bladder syndrome and Siberia is one of the biggest open areas they can find on earth that has plenty of trees against which to micturate undisturbed and unobserved.

Thanks for the ping. Looks pretty conventional, to me.

Nothing worth winding up the rabidly hostile-to-the-truth social stars around here, over.

After years of hearing about alien abductions, body probes of human and animal orifices, hybrid babies, and UFO drive-bys, etc. I've started to suspect that the rest of the universe considers our planet as something akin to. NYC's Port Authority Bus Station ( or pick the Inner City Hellhole of your choice).

If it were found in my part of the mountains, there’d be a grain/sugar concoction fermenting in it

Okay, you might be right about that one. But how do explain that the object is covered in shaving cream?
