UFO researchers certainly aren't the most credible source out there, but Scott Waring of UFOSightingsDaily reportedly received an email from a secret whistle-blowing employee of the ESA that states, "Comet 67P is NOT a comet. Some 20 years ago NASA began detecting radio bursts from an unknown origin out in space. It would later be known that these had likely come from the direction of the now named comet 67P. It does show signs on its outside of machine like parts and unnatural terrain." Continue reading for a detailed video explanation of these claims.

There's a difference between a Transformers fanatic, and Wing Wah metalwork factory designers Jiang Chen and Yang Junlin, as the duo recreated the Megatron Tank from Transformers 2. This 5-ton behemoth is made mostly of scrap metal, measures 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.5 meters, and looks like it was pulled directly from the film. The designers seek to show steel's plasticity, thus subverting traditional ideas about steel technology. They have also created several other Transformers for their workshop.
