The discovery of an ancient piece of Aluminum, which is almost 250,000 years old, has once again raised excitement amongst UFOlogists who contend that it is a remnant of an alien ship and the planet was visited by aliens much before human civilization existed. This mysterious piece of metal was discovered in the 1970’s in Romania when much of Eastern Europe including Romania was under communist rule.
Tests conducted on the piece of metal at a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland revealed that the metal was 90% pure Aluminum and was 250,000 years old.
Aluminum as a metal was produced only 200 years ago and was a scarce metal till the end of the 19th century when large-scale production started by electrolysis in a process which was perfected by Hall and Heroult. Earlier aluminum was so scarce that it was considered a precious metal and the French Emperor used Aluminum forks and Knives at the dinner table. Therefore, it is not possible that a piece of metal that old was made by humans.
In all probability, it was a piece of UFO fragment, and the substance could not be combined with the technology available on earth. This was stated by Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, George Cohal.
The mysterious piece of metal was recovered by construction workers 33 feet under the ground on the shores of Mures River close to the Romanian town of Aiud. The object was buried along with two bones. It was revealed later that the two bones were of a long-extinct mammal which died out 10,000 to 80,000 years ago. What was most intriguing is the discovery of the metal piece which was very light and appeared to have been manufactured.
However, some doubt the story like local historian Mihai Wittenberger who feels that the object was a piece of a second world war German aircraft. The piece is now on display at the History Museum of Cluj-Napoca with a sign saying “Origin still unknown.”
