Urmm? Not to sure what to make of this?

A large, metallic ball has baffled authorities after being found in grassland in Namibia.

Dubbed ‘a space ball’, the hollow object was located near a village at the north of the country.

The 6kg ball was found in mid November and locals reported hearing several small explosions in the few days before.

The lacking search feature on ATS is the reason for the fail of this thread.


Been posted like 4 times today.
Better luck next time.

The article says what is...


According to Discovery News, however, any space expert will recognise the mystery ‘space ball’. They report it to be a ‘Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel (or COPV for short) which basically means it’s a piece of space junk that has fallen from orbit. Their function is to store gasses under pressure in space and is made of very tough material, hence why it remains intact on entry.

Its not the lack of a search feature.
If a story gets posted multiple times in the same forum, and one copy of the story appears on the front page, and also on the new topic page, and somebody STILL posts the same story again, IMHO that just indicates a problem with the poster, not with ATS.

Well it's pretty obvious you lack the ability to read the first page of the section you're posting in. People are sick of it.

And yeah I feel a little better knowing you will try not to do it in future.

No worries buddy! Thanks for giving me your time.

It's not actualy on the first page of the forum? Well, not on my pages it's not. I have now seen it in the search pages.

Thanks for your kind understanding, I really love it when people like you point out rather than hint. Top stuff.

Have a great day

Nobody "Jumped" on YOU mate!

You only did what people do every day on this site.

You can't beat the star n flag hounds that do nothing but sit around watching for "news" stories to post on ATS.

Don't get your feelings hurt, it wasn't directed at you.

this surely isnt anything
but why people mock when we in our bare infancy have we have sent probes to other worlds and beyond
is it so hard to believe in a 5 billion year old universe that we are the only ones looking

-YOU SEEM OFFENDED-

a very informative article that will help you deal with those annoying things that happen on a daily basis.

sorry to be off topic OP guess im just further derailing





3. Driving other people crazy: People who make a big deal out of very small things have a tendency to drive the people around them nuts. As a result they end up alienating people and causing people to minimize interaction with them.

oh excuse me i just assumed by your continued informing of the OP's mistake that your feelings were hurt. dont worry tomorrows another day you can put your make-up on and make a big deal about something that has nothing to do with anything.

I just ask, why when an interesting subject appears, certain people pay more attention to the "already posted" thing instead of discussing the subject?
Don´t you think that is repeatedly posted precisely because it is interesting?
And because most of us are not all day long in front of the main or front page af ATS?
This was first post of this subject to me, and to me the interesting thing is knowing more about those balls, not if somebody is repeating threads.
