    yeah definitely cool worthy, maybe an observation of something else will explain this if in fact it cannot be explained by known physics...

    Yeah, that's a good point.

    Like that Star Trek episode where the "life form, but unlike any we've ever encountered" turned out to be a previously encountered life form, but it was just wearing a silly hat.

    I love stuff like this. I remember being genuinely disappointed when the famous "BLOOP" signal was explained by shifting tectonic plates or something... really thought we'd found Chthulu.

    In some ways, it is more interesting to me than discovering life. Life is expected within the known universe. But new matter is something so unimaginably different even though we are expecting to find it as dark matter.

    Having said that, it would certainly be much more interesting, at least, socially and biologically to discover new intelligent life.
