Sorry if this sounds a boring explanation to all the "alien artifacts" we see here, but something you don't hear that often is that it could be
space junk, bits of the huge amount of debris floating around in space.
Please excuse my lack of knowledge as far as this is concerned, but i figured if we can have space junk fall onto earth, and chunks of rock can hit
planets, then couldn't a piece of metal floating around in space maybe hit a planet and stay there?
Like i said, i know little of how space works with gravity and all that, so maybe i'm just clutching at straws. Would space junk just keep floating
in space and not touch a planet? If so, why do things fall to earth and not just stay up there?
It's just that whenever we see a new photo appear on this board, whether it's Mars, the moon or elsewhere, there seems to be only three possibile
1. A rover left it there.
2. It's a rock formation.
3. It's an alien artifact.
Thanks in advance for any replies on this.
