I cant believe it! For years I have had"the same piece sitting on my shelf that I found oddly in my gardens while raking leaves.rAppeared to have been burnt off of something, yet hard like rock and a dark olive color with shiny glass like edges, along with many small holes on parts of it.
I strangly laughed and distinctly remember saying," looks like space junk or burnt off material from something odd.What, I wasn't sure.
So it has remained on my shelf.Once in a while something will trigger thoughts of it and hopes of someday finding the rappropriate specialist to analyze it.
Few months back With learning of google images, I put in various words to see if I could find anything resembling my space junk rock.
I did not find anything of its color,shape, texture or uniqueness.
Now I see the news article on the evening new, paused to write down the bureau of objects, retrieval & analysis.
I may now have a better description of space junkie to google a match! If there are any collectors of such a piece,"space junkie" will be up for sale.
I hope it's what I ve wanted to believe all along!
Glad I always kept you in a safe place,"Space Junk", for that someday to come!
I think it's here! Off to Google the correct name Ballast & Russia's now defunct mir space station or space cargo vehicle.
Wish me luck!! Be back to let you know my findings......
