About: This piece represents an experiment gone wrong. A meteor crashed and harnessed dark matter. The United States wants to use this dark matter as a weapon in case of attack. Cows were test subjects for the dark matter. The experiments went wrong most of the time destroying their equipment. However, they eventually created a weaponized satellite to fire at the UFO. The UFO was then identified as a meteorite passing by. When the satellite was fired it created a worm hole in space that sucks in the earth.
