Study Confirms King Tut's Knife Was Made From Space Meteorite

Ancient Aliens doesn't seem so crazy anymore! Geekologie tells us that a dagger that was buried with King Tut (who ruled Egypt around 1324 B.C.) has been confirmed to have been constructed from meteoritic iron!

According to the study, the blade is constructed of iron and cobalt consistent to that of meteorites that were present in the early beginnings of our solar system! This means one of two things:

  1. Ancient Egyptians constructed weapons for royalty using fallen space rocks
  2. Tut got a gift for being the first human to make contact with an otherworldly species!

I want to believe, but science points to the first one being more true than the latter. We can still hold out hope though, right?
