There is a lot we don't know in space.
Even in our own galaxy, we're constantly finding new information. Truthfully, it's probably just a matter of time until an intergalactic species either destroys us or makes us their sex servants.
NASA's Dawn mission to the dwarf planet Ceres shouldn't raise too much alarm, however.
Except it found EVIDENCE OF ORGANIC MATERIAL.
Yes, it's true. The icy world could show signs of microbial life, but what's the big whoop?
Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
While Ceres isn't alone in testing positive for organic material, it is special.
The organic material found on Ceres is thought to be local. This means that it's always been there and wasn't brought there by a passing comet or asteroid.
NASA said in a statement,
The organics discovery adds to Ceres' attributes associated with ingredients and conditions for life in the distant past.
Scientists believe Ceres, as well as Jupiter's moon Europa, Saturn's moon Enceladus and Mars, could have the right conditions for life. Ceres, along with Europa and Enceladus, could have liquid water beneath their rocky exteriors.
So, what does that mean?
According to one blog post, on March 4, 2017, NASA silently released a photo of Ceres and over 65 percent had been blurred out.
In the 35 percent of the photo that is shown, people believe there is a 2-mile-high structure, close to the white spot on Ceres.
Some people even believe NASA is trying to cover up 65 percent of Ceres has structures on it, like this one shown below.
So, what does that mean? Could it be Ceres is inhabited by human-like creatures who have the ability to build structures, much like ourselves?
Is there another Earth out there that NASA is trying to keep secret from us?
Or, you know, is it just a weird thing in a picture on a hunk of rock in space? I guess we'll never know....
