When Pigs Fly – US Drone or Chinese Space Launch?

“Space ball” drops on Namibia


A large metallic ball fell out of the sky on a remote grassland in Namibia, prompting baffled authorities to contact NASA and the European space agency.

The hollow ball with a circumference of 1.1 metres (43 inches) was found near a village in the north of the country some 750 kilometres (480 miles) from the capital Windhoek, according to police forensics director Paul Ludik.

Unnamed Pentagon sources were adamant this is not a US drone.  “We’ve made a list of all our drones and checked it twice.  We are not missing any drones.”  He went on to observe, “The workmanship and metal quality appear to be Chinese in origin.  Unless we discover we’ve miscounted our drones we’ll continue to operate on the premise this object is a Chinese Space Program launch intended for Harbor Freight.”

Some skeptics are less certain.  A news release from a popular UFO debunking site offered the following analysis:  “It’s obviously the planet Venus or a weather balloon.  People who aren’t trained to carefully observe and think clearly are always making these kinds of mistakes.”

  1. Reminds me of the movie, ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ (1981).

  2. Read about that yesterday or the day before. Looks to me just like the metal core from a pressure vessel used in older rocket technology. You can see the welded seams. Inside the rocket they usually have some kind of wrapping with high-tensile fibers, same idea as fiberglass, but heat-resistant and a lot more expensive.

  3. It could be an alien drone…

  4. What’s a matter you? Never seen a Robot Egg Before?

    • Morning Keith. What they said in those times didn’t carry the weight of experience. By now we were all supposed to be just now coming out of our bomb shelters to fight off the mutants. Hope all’s well with you and yours. Regards to the fambly. J
