A Mysterious Spaceship-like Object Found In Space!

That gorgeous thing above is Hubble's newest finding: a suspiciously spaceship-like object zooming around outer space at 11,000 miles per hour, leaving behind it some X-shaped dust.So far NASA has floated the idea that this might be a comet, the result of two asteroids colliding, though they add that "the filamentary appearance...is different from anything seen in Hubble images of normal comets, consistent with the action of a different process.""In other words," as Gizmodo's Jesus Diaz put it, "they have no clue about what this is.... Maybe it's time to call Dr. Zarkov."(Also, if you haven't already, you should check out the recent infographic we did about active NASA missions. It's pretty mind-boggling, though perhaps not as mind-boggling as X-shaped dust in space.)Via Gizmodo
