MOSCOW – Russian officials have confirmed suspicions: there is a lifeform inside the giant glowing asteroid.
The asteroid has been cordoned off from the public since its arrival outside of Moscow, glowing and growing. Russian superhero, Ural, and a team of scientists have monitored it since, but as it has continued to grow (now over 1,000 feet in diameter), an image of a lifeform can be seen inside it. Amateur photos have been circulating the internet for the past few days, and the Kremlin could no longer keep it under wraps.
“Yes, there appears to be something gestating inside,” said spokesperson Piotr Markov. “We do not know what it is or whether it is dangerous. We have work to do.”
No indication has been given as to what sort of creature is inside, but security has been heightened due to the leaks. The reports of strange outer space dreams have decreased amongst the locals, but rumors have surfaced that many of the scientists studying the asteroid haven’t been sleeping well.
“Please,” Markov said, visibly frustrated by the questions, “we have been working very hard to keep everyone safe. So yes, we are tired. But to speak of outer space dreams of alien worlds and cosmic energies is ridiculous.”
