A series of ancient fossils have been discovered inside an asteroid.
But before you get over-excited, no - it's not evidence of some kind of mysterious extra-terrestrial dinosaur.
In fact the fossils (which originated on Earth, obviously) were created in the instant that an asteroid hit the Earth millions of years ago.
Something which, it turns out, isn't that rare.

There was a thread about this .....

I think that the title by the HuffPost is misleading... of course they play it straight in the article, but the title is wrong they way they worded it.
ETA: More specifically, I've never heard of a 'glass asteroid'. The glass that they found was terrestrial debris that was melted by the intense heat generated by the asteroid's collision with the Earth. Think tektite.
The debris wasn't found in a glass asteroid.

It is an interesting thought Slayer.I don't think that your tinfoil hat is on too tight.Intelligent speculation is your stock in trade.
I wonder how they could prove that the fossils are not from earth.It is possible that life could be the same as here elsewhere in the universe.Now my tinfoil hat is on too tight.......ouch.
