Turns out they found something, and no one knows what it is. You could read the article. But frankly, the best part of this news, are the people tossing out ideas as to what it is.
Here are a few choice ideas:
“Perhaps it was a Glint in the Eye of the Creator.”
“maby it was a species testing an atomic colider”
“the empire was just overthrown with the destruction of their new, powerful starbase weapon”
“There’s no mystery as to what Hubble has found. It’s McHale and that band of pirates of his!!! I knew they were up to no good! And that nitwit Ensign Parker! I’ll have them all court-martialed for perpetrating a hoax!!!”
