Alien Particles Are Attacking Our Galaxy, NASA Makes Discovery Using IBEX


Alien particles have entered our galaxy according to NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX). According to the space agency the particles have been found just 200,000 miles away from Earth.

IBEX found not just one but three separate types of atoms that include neon, hydrogen and neon, elements that are all necessary when forming new stars.

After confirmation NASA officials discovered that the particles did not come from Earth’s sun or other planets in our solar system.

David McComas, leader of the IBEX team told the Huffington Post:

“It’s exciting to be able to have these first observations of alien matter – stuff that didn’t come from our sun or the planets, but came from the outside of our solar system, from other parts of the galaxy. We think these are really important measurements, because these elements are the fundamental building blocks of stars, planets, and people.”

This is the very first time alien particles have been discovered in our Galaxy and the discovery has excited scientists who are now getting their first glimpse at our neighboring galaxy’s and the materials that make them up.

According to the Inquisitr:

The IBEX was launched in 2008 and is currently orbiting about 200,000 miles above the earth in the heliosphere of the Milky Way.

NASA promises more information once the particles have been fully examined.
