In the Kubrick movie, an alien monolith is a recurring symbol planted by mysterious aliens that appears to be a catalyst in the development of human evolution.
This new monolith was discovered on the top of a small hill in Romania and seems to be hastily constructed, as opposed to the smooth structure found - and then "stolen" - in Utah.
"'We have started looking into the odd appearance of the monolith", local Culture and Heritage official Rocsana Josanu told EuroWeekly. For now, all we can do is await official word on the sudden appearance and disappearance of the structure.
"I like the idea that it could be some alien teenagers who are planting monoliths around the world", the mayor said. It was reportedly found standing on the Bâtca Doamnei plateau, near an archaeological site overlooking the city.
KO Steals Show In Tyson vs Jones Jr
Seeing as how it was only an exhibition, Tyson was asked if he had any plans to transition to a competitive duel. In round five, Tyson began to get going, landing some shots on Jones Jr including a vintage hook.
With no leads in the case, local authorities - specifically, the Sheriff's Office in San Juan County, Utah - declined to investigate.
Whether it was put in some time between 2015 and 2016, or was literally carved into the rock back in the 1950s is still up for debate (though I'd say it'd be the first one).
Officials from the Utah Department of Public Safety and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources discovered the three-sided silver structure on November 18 via helicopter, while on a routine mission to count bighorn sheep. However, in 1991, two Englishmen David Chorley and Doug Bower came forward to claim responsibility for the crop circles, saying they had created them as "joke", using ropes and a plank of wood. This "new" monolith also has graffiti drawn on it, which was not spotted on the "original" structure. The metal structure, which is between 9.8 feet and 13.1 feet tall, is near the site of the ancient fortress Petrodava, the outlet said.
He said he would be "tolerant of them" if the monolith attracts more tourists. Vice News theorizes that the new monolith may be the work of the late minimalist artist John McCracken, who may have harbored a fascination with installing pieces in far-flung locations.
It's source, and where it lives now, remain a mystery befitting of Kubrick's beguiling sci-fi masterpiece.
