A mysterious piece of aluminum is being considered as 250,000-year-old evidence of alien existence on Earth. The old metal was discovered in communist Romania in 1973, but it wasn’t made public at the time.
After several examinations, the object is found to have made of 12 metals and 90 percent aluminum. Romanian officials concluded it is a 250,000 years old chunk of metal.
A laboratory in Lausanne, Switzerland later confirmed the initial results.
The large chunk is being hailed as an intriguing find because humanity wasn’t producing metallic aluminum until around 200 years ago.
In 1973, three objects measuring 33 feet or 10 meters was discovered under the ground on the shores of the Mures River. Archeologists identified two of the objects as fossils. The third one is a light metal and suspected to be the end of an ax.
All objects being discovered were sent to Cluj City in the region of Transylvania, Romania. Experts quickly determined the two as large bones of an extinct large mammal that died around 10,000 to 80,000 years ago. However, they were stunned to know that the third object was a piece of lightweight metal that seemed to have been manufactured.
The object in question is 7.8 inches or 20 centimeters long, 4.9 inches or 12.5 centimeters wide, and 2.8 inches or 7 centimeters thick.
Puzzled experts concluded that the piece of metal could be manufactured as part of a more complex mechanical system because it has concavities.
Now, the results have brought speculations of UFO and alien visitations in the past.
Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, Gheorghe Cohal, believes that there’s a big chance that the third object is an old UFO fragment because it comprises with substances that could not be combined with technology on Earth.
Meanwhile, local historian Mihai Wittenberger believes the object is just a piece of a German aircraft during World War II, particularly from the landing gear of Messerschmitt ME 262.
However, this suggestion doesn’t explain the age of the lightweight metal.
The mysterious metal object is currently on display at the History Museum of Cluj-Napoca with a description saying “origin still unknown.”
