Deeply penetrating objects...

If you follow this blog, you probably already know my topics have ranged a lot. I guess I'm what you'd call a real scatter brain.

I write erotica, science fiction, name it. So, putting that all together is just fun for me.

While perusing a science site, I came across this quote BY A PHYSICIST which, of course, makes it so much more credible than when, say, any regular man says the same thing. And I quote “We know from the entry physics that the largest and most energetic objects penetrate deepest,” said David Morrison, an astronomer with NASA’s Ames Research Center.

I actually found it on a site talking about the Tanguska, Siberia Lake Cheko. There was something on tv that said the earth gets hit like a punching bag every day. Basketball sized objects hit every single day. Volkswagon sized debris every six months. And Tanguska size every 1000-1500 years.

Tanguska sounded familiar, but all I could remember was something about trees laying flat in odd patterns. As it turns out, some scientists have found something with their sonar equipment. The thing is 10 meters (33 ft) down, seems to be about 30 feet in diameter and 1700 tons in weight. So, of course, some folks are conjecturing the possibility of it being a spacecraft. Wouldn't that be cool to find? Or scary...? What do you think, more cool or more scary?

The whole story can be found at this ridiculously long link:
