"A strange metal ball dropped out of the sky and slammed into the remote grassland of northern Namibia recently, according to press reports.http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/45770560/ns/today-today_tech/t/mysterious-space-ball-crashes-down-namibia-grasslands/
The 14-inch-wide (35-centimeter) metallic sphere hit the ground about 480 miles (750 kilometers) north of Windhoek, the African country's capital. It left a crater 13 inches (33 cm) deep and 12.5 feet (3.8 meters) across, the Agence-France Presse (AFP) reported Thursday.
The metal "space ball" weighs 13 pounds (6 kilograms). It has a rough surface and appears to consist of two halves that were welded together, according to AFP.
The mystery sphere was discovered in mid-November, but local authorities held off on announcing the find until they could perform a few tests. They determined it poses no danger to the public."

If all our alien enemies can muster is a hollow metallic sphere, at least we have nothing to worry about.
Or maybe it's supposed to be a peace offering?
Actually, it was just a game of basketball gone horribly wrong. In fact, we've just finished repairs on the broken Shield.
