Romania. 2 km from the town of Ayuda. In the sand pit on the river Murysh at a depth of 10 m, workers found some strange things. The two findings identified bone fragments. Another object of a type and weight like a stone ax.
Archaeological Museum staff have determined that the bones — is part of the limbs and back teeth mastodon, an ancestor of modern elephants. These mighty animals live on our planet 20 million years ago.
The third item was indeed like an ax, but a stone, and metal. The length of a little more than 20 cm, two holes of different diameters at right angles to each other. The deformation of the larger of these shows is that this hole was fixed a rod. The top and sides are covered with traces of heavy blows.
Alleged hatchet clearly not suited for use as a primitive tools. Maybe the object is part of a specialized machine? But what kind of metal aggregates could be contemporary mastodons?
Spectral analysis showed that the early part of the complex is made of a metal alloy twelve elements and contains 89% aluminum. This metal is found in nature only in the form of compounds. Select it possible at temperatures below 950? C Besides aluminum was discovered only in 1825
None of the experts archaeologists, paleontologists, engineers failed to identify or establish similarities Ayudskogo facility with modern machinery and parts. Aeronautical engineers hypothesized that ax like a compact landing gear of the aircraft, which could make a soft landing on the surface.
Evidence: a form two holes — fixing points for poles, signs and scratches on the bottom edges, and the material — lightweight aluminum, which is used today in the aviation and space technologies. Is chance find in a sand quarry in Romania — a fragment of an alien spaceship?
Over the years, scientists have learned about this thing is nothing new. Accurately determine the age of metal products failed. Absolutely no one knows who did molten aluminum in prehistoric times, and made him the subject. It is absolutely unclear why he served. Do scientists ever find a reasonable explanation? Perhaps the origin of the object Ayudskogo forever remain a mystery
