Not Space Science But Stonehenge Discovery Still Big News


Despite the fact it is one of the world's most visited tourist destinations, been the center of controversial theories for hundreds of years, and even hosted a few television programs, Stonehenge continues to surprise.

This week British archaeologists announced the discovery of a small village built just a couple miles from the monolithic stone structure which was likely the home for the people who built and used Stonehenge. The village has been dated to nearly 2600 B.C., around the same time as the building of Stonehenge. This is also the time period when ancient Egyptians were constructing the pyramids.

This is obviously not a space-themed story itself, however, it does provide one more piece of evidence that Stonehenge was not, as some would have us believe, built by aliens...
