Kurt Broz
THE Kurt Broz is not just a personality for Nerdbot, but he's also the editor-in-chief and a real live scientist! Born on the snowy shores of Lake Erie in good ol' Cleveland, Ohio, Kurt Broz has been there and back again, now residing in sunny Southern California. You can find THE Kurt Broz in cosplay, buying comics, hiking, and even writing for Nerdbot and WLFK Productions. He may be a child of the 80's but he is certainly a man of the world.

NASA has been tracking something… out of this world. Hell, probably out of this solar system. If it is an object from beyond out little space in the universe, it would be the first object we’ve seen on a truly intersteller trajectory in our system.

This object that NASA calls A/2017 U1 – but I like to call V’Ger (Star Trek reference!) – is being tracked and studied. The object is very likely a small comet or asteroid thrown out of another solar system and entering ours. It’s moving fast and it’s small but it’s probably not some extraterrestrial technology.

Probably.

Updates on all the interesting science stuff can be found on NASA’s website. Though Hollywood forgets it, the universe is in 3-D, and thus this object is coming on a different plane than our planets and other sun orbiting junk. That’s a good sign that it isn’t from our solar system originally. Studying it may yield more about the unvierse and how these objects get torn away and go rogue.
