"It is a mysterious ball that looks like a prop from a science fiction film - and nobody can explain where it came from."

Translation: "It's a boring looking dirty metallic sphere with nipples - and a few people can explain where it came from."

I hate it when reporters try to spice up a story by getting opinions from ignoramuses. Do I really need to know that some smartass claimed "it could be an escaped particle from the Large Hadron Collider"?

Surely not a piece of any of the 4,000 man-made satellites orbiting the earth. Definitely proof of extraterrestrials.

God I hope somebody made that part up.

I don't see how this is a mystery.

Surely, if it is something man made and put up into space, they have some record of parts used in whatever it was they put up there, or if it is something from recent times they recognize the part.

You're not telling me they've looked at this and gone "we have no idea!".

I'm pretty sure that's a hydrazine storage tank.

Hydrazine is used to produce thrust for satellites, it's rather toxic and explosive, not something to be messed with.

If extraterrestrial life does exist, it will most likely think twice about contacting us, for our media would most assuredly cause a mass panic. If this stupid event involving some piece of junk is worthy of news, I hate to think what first contact would do to us. ... we're clearly not ready.

Its The Sphere from that one book...Sphere

I liked that book. Hated the ending.

"only going about 1/4 that fast."

Pretty sure Space Balls travel at ludicrous speed.

hat i dont get is when a meteor crashes it gets smashed into tiny bits but this thing is intact.

The simple answer is that meteors are going MUCH faster -- on the order of 60,000 MPH. A piece of a satellite going not quite fast enough to stay in orbit is only going about 1/4 that fast. Also, that fuel tank is a smooth sphere, and it entered Earth's atmosphere at a very shallow angle. Meteors tend to be rough and odd shaped, and they hit at a much steeper angle. Also, the fuel tank is hollow; it would probably float in water. A meteor is solid rock or iron.
