Harvard Argues That Interstellar Object Was Alien Probe Investigating Earth

Oumuamua the possible alien spacecraft

Astronomers were excited to discover the interstellar object a year ago.

"The evidence about Oumuamua is not conclusive but interesting. The light-sail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargos between planets or between stars".

"Most intriguingly it's moving on a trajectory that implies an extra push in addition to the gravitational force from the sun".

The cigar-shaped space rock which was designated as a comet by astronomers is apparently the first known object from another solar system to pass through our own.


Astronomers first thought the 'Oumuamua was just another comet or an asteroid originating in our Solar System. Bialy himself admitted he wasn't ready to believe the results: "Most probably, our paper is wrong and there's a more simple explanation [for 'Oumuamua]", Bialy told Quartz.

They also cited other research showing that if outgassing were responsible for the acceleration, it would have also caused a rapid evolution in 'Oumuamua's spin, which wasn't observed.

"Oumuamua showed unusual features since its discovery". It has a odd shape, doesn't show the characteristics usually observed in comets and asteroids, and is flying through space in a way that scientists wouldn't expect it to, he said. Unable to agree, they made 'Oumuamua the first member of a new class of thing. Yet an object this thin would have been obliterated by interstellar travel.

The study noted the possibility that the elongated dark-red object, which is 10 times as long as it is wide and travelling at speeds of 315,364 km per hour (kmh), might have an "artificial origin", Xinhua news agency reported.
