Russian researchers found a tiny microchip inside ancient stone.
Researchers are excited about this discovery as it opens the possibility of ancient advanced civilizations hundred of millions of years ago with technologies perhaps even greater than ours. However, only the organic material around the "microchip" was dated to between 225 and 250 million years ago, not the rock or chip itself.
It was found in the Krasnodar, Russia by a local fisherman named Viktor Morozov. He donated his finding the University of Southern Polytechnic Nowoczerkaskiej where scholars ran tests and concluded there to be some kind of strange "device" embedded in the rock that looks like a modern microchip. They dare not try to cut it out fearing it may break, so they've left it there for the world to see.
This has people around the world speculating what it actually is. There are many such mysterious artifacts found in Russia that also go unexplained. Some researchers say it may be a natural part of a stem plant like lilies, while skeptics dismiss it as nothing special.
Maybe we should ask that Russian boy from Mars if he recognizes it.
What do you think? Is this a real ancient artifact of advanced technology or just some modern day junk?
