Did the Russians Just Find a Massive Fragment of a Real Life UFO?

What is that object above? It was apparently found near a remote village in the middle of Siberia, and no one knows how it got there or what it is. It’s presumed to have fallen from space, but the 200kg “fragment” isn’t anything related to human space technology, according to Russian space agency officials.

Ever since I saw the awesome cars that could move sideways in I, Robot, I’ve longed for the day when your standard one-axis tyre would be relegated to the scrap heap.

Well what do we have here then? Has Phones 4u just leaked that Samsung’s going to release the Galaxy S III in London on the 30th of March? These shots were taken of the Phones 4u store on London’s Oxford Street, but apart from that we don’t have much information. We know Samsung’s going to announce its new flagship within the next couple of months, but previous rumours pointed at April and May, not March.
