It has been reported by the Space Center in China that a space probe launched in 1998, on a ten year round-trip exploration voyage to Ferno, a small asteroid that orbits the sun every three-hundred years is returning. However, instruments on board the craft have detected an inorganic metallic element fused to the hull of the vessel.

Astrophyisis, Hee Noes, head of CSC. stated the following at an emergency meeting in Bejing, China on Tuesday.

"Our instruments have detected that some sort of inorganic metallic element (IME) has fused with our space probe and is going to enter the earth's atmosphere when the craft returns on September 8th, 2010. Calibrated toxicity analyzers aboard the craft have indicated that the metallic element is composed of 90% Berillium Deathea 213, a radioactive isotope type substance found only in deep space and is deadly to all life here on earth. Since there is no known defense against this type of deadly contamination, it is our hope that it will burn up upon entering the earth's atmosphere."

International concerns about the incoming space probe have reached hysterical proportions and demands from the Soviet Union, as-well-as the United States to shoot the killer space probe down have gone unheeded by the officials at China's Space Center.

Many at the United Stated Space Agency (USSA) believe that shooting the deadly probe down would spread the toxic radioactive element throughout the atmosphere and cause a wider catastrophe than if the space probe landed on its own.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
