Did they poke it with a stick?

Did they also find a hatch and an electromagnetic field?

Definitely needs a good stick poking.
Maybe later we could get sophisticated and do it w/ something sticky on the end.

aaaaand this discovery led us to know that Alpha varies... yup, the universal constant changes from time to time

Cpl.D: Drill into it, run piping down there, heat water.  Run piping through a heat exchanger safely below the surface, use the steam from that to run a series of turbines.  Quick nuclear power without dicking around.

Drill into it, use a fission neutron tool to work out the percentage of fissile material still left down there, pump high concentration acid though it and get said fissile material for reactors.

Or not?
