Space Odyssey tribute

While many have joked about the monolith being a possible alien object, others think it is just an homage to Stanly Kubrick’s classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The film shows a similar monolith playing a key role in mankind’s evolution from apes.

Officials stumped?

While the US government has declined to comment on the object, they have issued a reminder on Twitter that “using, occupying, or developing the public lands or their resources without a required authorization is illegal, no matter what planet you are from.”
