Just as an interest, comment if your bird was killed in this video. (They actually aren't birds, but "Strange Birds" I know that joke sucked.) Anyways, those were great deaths! Bird #1: Perfectly safe. (Glass cracking) (Both): Screaming as they find out that it's NOT safe at all, and as they're converted into strange matter. (Moon): What just happened? (On Mars) Alien #1: So, how did they go extinct again? Alien #2: Hmm... I think some astronauts brought strange matter to Earth, then some idiot birds held it and wiped out all the people on that world. Alien #1: Deadliest birds in the universe. (Both): Screaming (On Mercury) Alien #3: So, how did they go extinct again? ...

i'm curious about strange stars / strange matter in general: What 'colour' would a strange star radiate? and subsequently what 'colour' is strange matter, i assume the green colour shown in the video is just for illustration purposes

If strangelets could've been around since the begining there must be a way for them to decay back to regular matter otherwise a big chunk of the universe would already be strange matter.
