The Flying Gold Mine!

The NY Times says some anti-vaxxers are concerned that if they take a coronavirus vaccine than they will turn into a zombie, like the ones featured in Will Smith’s movie ”I Am Legend”. Some believe the conspiracy theory because the film is set in 2021. The zombie outbreak in the film was caused by a genetically modified virus not a vaccine. ”I Am Legend” screenwriter Akiva Goldsman addressed the days-old conspiracy theory yesterday with the following statement: “Oh. My. God. It’s a movie. I made that up. It’s. Not. Real,”

NASA has located and identified an asteroid flying around in outer space that’s full of metals worth more than $10,000 quadrillion dollars. This “goldmine” asteroid — which they call the Psyche 16 asteroid — is 124 miles wide and orbits the sun in the asteroid belt. Engineers and astronomers at NASA are working right now to launch something to get a closer look at this thing. Of course, it’ll end up on the finger of a Kardashian. (Daily Star)
And finally,

An unopened copy of Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System sold at an auction for $2 million! The sealed copy of the 1985 video game was sold to an anonymous buyer. The purchase beat the previous record for a video game, which was set in July when someone bought a sealed copy of Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 for $1.56 million. I’m never opening another video game ever again. (The Verge)
