    A Star in the Big Dipper Is an Alien Invader

    ...
    A star in the Big Dipper is an intergalactic alien, according to clues in its chemical fingerprints.
    The star's unusual chemistry is unlike that of all known stars in the Milky Way and instead has more in common with stars in nearby dwarf galaxies, new research reveals.
    Researchers suspected that the stellar oddball, named J1124+4535, originated in a dwarf galaxy that collided with the Milky Way long ago. According to that theory, when the dwarf galaxy fell apart, it stranded this star in our cosmic neighborhood.
    Wow!

            • Looking at Earth like this, we can almost imagine it is home to an advanced race of beings who have put aside war and poverty and suffering.

              Great video.
