    Hi guys!

    About the sphere that landed in Brazil, it is a helium tank from a Ariane 4 rocket. Here is a news footage about it (it is in portuguese, but you can see what kind of object it was):

    With regard to the sun article on the one metre sphere falling in Brazil,http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4152020/UFO-mystery-as-string-of-alien-videos-leave-experts-baffled.html

    The numbers look wrong. A 1m sphere weighing in at 50Kg has a very low density – about 100Kg/m3.
    This puts it half way between polystyrene and cork.

    So much for experts 🙂
