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.

So if a strangelet hit a star what you would get is a perfectly stable perfectly stable dense indestructible star that gives of very dim light.

So in other words and infinite (but weak) energy source.

I have so many questions, why would strange quarks only exist inside of neutron stars if they convert everything they touch? Wouldn't they convert the outside too? why aren't we observing stars wink out all the time if this is a real threat and they've existed since the birth of the universe? why hasn't it happened to us yet? how could we possibly know of all of these qualities of strange matter if its never been observed? how can we tell it even exists?
