In Scotland, Hurricane Chiara brought ashore the skeleton of a mysterious creature

On the northeast coast of Scotland, a skeleton of an unknown sea creature was discovered. It washed up on the land as a result of the storm “Chiara” .

An intriguing creature was discovered on Sunday, February 9, according to the Daily Mail . This happened after strong winds and heavy rain fell in the region. A photograph of the skeleton was published on Facebook. Commentators have suggested that the remains may belong to a whale or dolphin, while the creature has horns. Some have not ruled out that this is the skeleton of a Loch Ness monster.

Marine biologists are bewildered and can not determine what kind of creature carried ashore Scotland. Professor David Lusso from the University of Aberdeen said that the published picture does not allow to draw accurate conclusions, therefore, photos from other angles will be required.

According to Scottish legend, the Loch Ness monster lives in a local lake. To this day, there is no exact evidence that it really exists. In 1934, London physician R. Kenneth Wilson photographed the allegedly Loch Ness monster, but in 1994 they proved that this picture was fake.

A meteorite that fell in Germany turned out to be a “mini-planet”

Scientists at the University of Münster in Germany identified a celestial body that fell near Flensburg in September 2019. It turned out that this is not just a meteorite, but the “germ” of the planet – planetesimal, the University of Muenster reports.

The space “guest” was discovered by a local resident in his garden. The weight of the fragment covered with a black melted crust was only 24.7 grams.

The find was studied by representatives of one and a half dozen universities and research centers. Analyzes showed that the rock contains minerals, including silicates and carbonates.

It is known that such substances arose at the very beginning of the history of the solar system on small protoplanets, where water was also present. Many scientists believe that it was the planetesimals that once brought moisture to our Earth.

The authors of the study said that this is the first case of the fall of such a cosmic body in Germany. Its age can be 4.56 billion years or more – that is, it is the same age as the Earth. In the past, it really contained liquid water – this confirms the theory of moisture saturated planetesimals.

Scientists intend to continue to study the object. In their opinion, it may reveal unknown details of the history of the formation of planets in the solar system.
