A man in Russia has discovered a piece of coal in the Chernogorodskiy mines that contains what appears to be the remains of a machine that is 300 million years old. Could it be an ancient space ship or evidence of an intelligent species that once shared the planet with Dimetrodon? According to The Voice of Russia, the coal was formed 300 million years ago, which is why scientists believe the item inside dates back to that era too.
The Voice of Russia reported a man from the Russian city of Vladivostok found a metal detail stuck to a piece of coal. The object comes in a “distinctive shape which was reminiscent of a modern tooth-wheel.” The man was lighting fire to heat his home when he spotted the odd object. Without naming the man, the ‘Voice’ reported he sought the help of “scientists of Primorye region” to study his find. The scientists reportedly said the object was man-made and it was supposedly 300 million years old.
Igor Okunev, a senior fellow at the St. Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics, is the scientist who reportedly confirmed the age of the metal detail. Findings prompted speculations that the relic could have been left behind by a UFO or some aliens who visited the Earth those many years ago. The technology to craft the metal detail found by the man did not exist on Earth at the time of its supposed manufacture.
In another report from Beforeitsnews.com, the object has been subjected to X-ray diffraction analysis to study its components. Results showed the object is made of “very pure aluminum with microimpurities of magnesium of only 2 – 4 percent”, something that prompted speculations that the object could not have been of Earthly origin.
“No more than seven centimeters long, the object was found to be composed of 98 percent aluminum and 2 per cent magnesium. On the one hand, such an alloy stalled the scientists because nearly pure aluminum is very rarely found in nature,” reads The Voice of Russia report. “After the discovery came public, conspirators were quick to dub it ‘a UFO tooth-wheel.’ Russian scientists, however, do not jump to conclusions and will run further tests to learn more about the strange artifact,” the ‘Voice’ report says.
