A tourist took the remains of ancient people with him on a flight to the edge of space

A new “space tour” was organized in early September by the American company Virgin Galactic, which specializes in tourist suborbital flights.

The VSS Unity spacecraft, which, in addition to the crew, included citizens of the United States, Great Britain and South Africa, made a commercial flight, reaching the very top limit atmosphere and space.

At the same time, one of the tourists decided to take with them the remains of ancient representatives of the human race. This caused bewilderment and surprise among a number of scientists.

It is reported that the case, which contained fragments of an Australopithecus clavicle aged about 2 million years and the thumb bone of the fossil man Homo naledi, whose age scientists estimate at 300 thousand years, was taken with him by a South African billionaire Timothy Nash.
