The craft is scheduled to leave the asteroid at the end of 2019 and bring the surface fragments and underground samples back to Earth in late 2020.

I seriously doubt it has any aliens on it. It's a partnered mission to get some idea about its mineral
composition. They have been talking about it for years.

Read that story this am. They fired a copper sphere the size of a baseball. Wonder if they used a 1841 6 pounder cannon or a sleeved 1857 Napoleon? Obviously, friction primers would be used. 😀

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

i dont know about that a alien race would of planted a egg virus on that rock knowing we would come along many thousands of years later and take a sample and bring it back to earth when we are full of humans thus using us as host to grow out from our carcuses

The meteorite is claimed to contain 'biosignatures', which researchers describe as textures and features left behind by organisms. The image shows a thin section of ALH-77005 in plane polarised light, with the area studied area marked by a brown rectangle
