The "flying saucer" actually belonged to NASA, not some alien species initiating its takeover of our planet.

The U.S. space agency says the photo below shows wreckage from the return of the NASA-launched Genesis spaceship it originally launched back in 2001 to study the sun.

Last Sunday, November 4, on the official website of the American national space Agency took a picture with the caption: "Flying saucer" from outer space crashed in the Utah desert after its spotted by radar and shot down a military helicopter.

'The unexpectedly hard landing at over 300 kilometres per hour occurred because the parachutes did not open as planned'.

Science Alert reports that the Genesis return capsule was supposed to re-enter the atmosphere when a mortar aboard the spacecraft was supposed to blow and release a parachute to slow and stabilize its descent.

Numerous samples were able to be analyzed despite the crash landing.

The "flying saucer" isn't an alien spaceship though - it is the remnants of the robot spaceship Genesis that was created to study the Sun and launched in 2001.

"These results have provided intriguing clues into details of how the Sun and planets formed billions of years ago", NASA added.

In order to chemically model the processes associated with the transformation of the solar nebula into our solar system, NASA scientists intended for Genesis to collect samples of that original nebula with the hope of using them as a baseline from which they could track changes.

Another three years later, a series of papers were published on the Genesis mission. What came crashing down to Earth was Genesis's sample return capsule.
