The source of the red light emitted by the Red Rectangle baffled scientists for more than 30 years. The same kind of red emission￼ was seen throughout the Milky Way and in other galaxies, but scientists weren't sure what created it. The mystery was finally solved in 2007: The glow comes from strange activity at the molecular level inside clusters of dust.
According to Space.com, the star at the center of the Red Rectangle is similar to Earth's sun and is responsible for those evenly spaced lines as it releases gas and other material to create the nebula and its distinctive shape. NASA experts now believe the star is also a close binary (meaning it has a stellar partner), and is surrounded by a dense area of dust, according to the statement.
The star at the center of the Red Rectangle will eventually leave behind a hot white dwarf that will give off brilliant ultraviolet radiation that will cause the surrounding gas to glow.
I'm glad they settled that. Still looks like an angel message from god to me.

So whats the truth? Well, the Christ thing is definitely another false alarm much as 2000 years ago, but the unicorn, according to U.S.News, the unicorn really looked like more of a rhinoceros than a horse. It reportedly stood about 6 feet 6 inches tall, measured around 15 feet long, and weighed about 8,000 pounds; which makes perfectly good sense seeing how everyone knows the unicorn liked to play around and never got on the arc when Noah was calling in the rain. Crazy horse just kept fucking around.
