450 Million Years Old Microchip? – Discovered in Kuban region form Russia
Avery strange rock was discovered on a riverbank in the Kuban region in Russia.
Embedded in the rock is a structure similar in nature to a modern electronic chip.
The rock was sent to analysis at the South Russian State Technical University and they determined the chip was 450 million years old.
While this discovery is extraordinary in its own, some have made a correlation between the age of this chip and a particularly great extinction that occurred in the same period.
The Ordovician-Silurian is the second greatest extinction event on Earth, with as much as 70% of all species dying.
The causes are still debated.
Coincidence? Maybe. Weird? Definitely!
