“Secret Government Info Confirms First Known Interstellar Object on Earth, Scientists Say”

The meteor’s speed tipped scientists off: it came in at over 130,000 mph, way faster than meteors in this solar system. But some of the data needed to confirm the interstellar speed of the meteor was classified.

After years of red tape, the confirmation is here. This means there could be interstellar stuff at the bottom of the South Pacific right now. Can we get to it? That’s the next question.
