Harvard scientists say mysterious space object may be from ‘alien civilization’

The truth is out there regarding the origins of a mysterious cigar-shaped object seen tumbling through the solar system a year ago, according to researchers from Harvard University who argue it may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth.

But now Harvard scientists say Oumuamua may literally be an alien spacecraft sent from another galaxy to spy on us, reports NBC News.

What 'Oumuamua actually is is a complicated matter - it's the first thing to ever be given the classification "interstellar object", due to its unknowable origins outside our solar system.

It sped past Earth and looped around our sun at 196,000 miles per hour and was about half a mile long.

"But we should examine anything that enters the solar system from interstellar space in order to infer the true nature of Oumuamua or other objects of its mysterious population".

They also discussed the likelihood that people on the left will find a way to blame President Donald Trump for yet another alien invasion during his administration.

The cigar-shaped rock is now speeding through the galaxy and is the first known interstellar object to enter our solar system. The excessive acceleration could be explained by the pressure of solar radiation, or "solar sail".

Bialy and Loeb are serious about the possibility Oumuamua might have been deliberately constructed by extraterrestrials.

Session was long criticized by Trump from recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation. That left Rosenstein overseeing the investigation, and he named Mueller as special counsel.

The work, written by Professor and chair of the Department of astronomy Abram Loeb, and the owner of scientific degrees Shmuel Balam, Harvard Smithsonian center for astrophysics, notes that similar light sails already exist on earth.

If nothing else, Loeb hopes this story serves as a vehicle to make the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Institute (SETI) more mainstream through evidence-based science.

The strangly shaped object is about half a mile long and is so unusual that Nasa said it had "never seen a natural object with such extreme proportions in the solar system before".

Jackson said the spectral data from 'Oumuamua looks like an asteroid or a comet, while that of a solar sail would look very different.

Some are not so sure the cigar-shaped 'Oumuamua is a solar sail, however.

Well, this week, the story of Oumuamua got a little bit weirder. "Even the authors probably do not believe it themselves".

If Oumuamua is a lightsail floating in interstellar space, it could have been ejected from a planetary system as "space debris" from equipment that is no longer operational. "Bailer-Jones" paper on possible origin sites for 'Oumuamua was accepted by the Astrophysical Journal in September. "It's fun and thought-provoking, and the issue of whether there is alien life out there is really important".
