Last month, we told you a cool story about an ancient Tibetan statue carved from a meteorite and its eventual arrival in Nazi Germany after a mysterious German expedition. Well, it seems that story just got a bit less cool, because according to one expert, while it may be made from a meteorite, the statue's likely not as ancient as we thought.
A Nazi expedition to Tibet, an ancient artifact, an outer space connection. It sounds like a rejected script for the fourth Indiana Jones flick, but according to researchers, this really happened. A new study claims that a unique Buddhist statue nabbed by Nazis in the '30s came from space ... kinda.
Turns out those flying saucers weren't the only sci-fi weapons the Nazis were hoping would help them take over the world. German scientists were also planning to launch a giant orbiting mirror that could have used the sun's rays to wage war.
