On this day (February 13) in 1961 the Coso Artifact was found. The artifact purports to be spark plug encased in 500,000 year old rock. If the spark plug could in fact be shown to be 500,000 years old, this would be one of the most important discoveries of all time. Critics argue that the evidence does not support the ancient date and that the spark plug is not actually in the geode but in the concretion (hard mass formed by the local accumulation of matter) attached to it. Others postulate that the spark plug (which appears to have been manufactured in the1920s) is proof of the existence of time travel. The current whereabouts of the Coso Artifact are unknown.
