We've had a couple of posts on this weirdly shaped asteroid that drifted into the solar system from interstellar space. The joke has been maybe it not natural but the product of an advanced civilization. Now it seems that a couple of Harvard scientists are thinking there's more to this cigar shaped rock then meets the eye:

Maybe it's an alien spacecraft.

Scientists have been puzzling over Oumuamua ever since the mysterious space object was observed tumbling past the sun in late 2017. Given its high speed and its unusual trajectory, the reddish, stadium-sized whatever-it-is had clearly come from outside our solar system. But its flattened, elongated shape and the way it accelerated on its way through the solar system set it apart from conventional asteroids and comets.

Now a pair of Harvard researchers are raising the possibility that Oumuamua is an alien spacecraft. As they say in a paper to be published Nov. 12 in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, the object "may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization."

Seems like a possibility. Pretty wild if it ended up in that shape on its own

Isn't it tumbling end over end? Weird way for a probe to travel through space. Probably just debris that's been shooting through space for a few billion years

This is wrong on so many levels:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...hQ4zpulmvc7yu8

A pair of MIT researchers has proposed a radical method for making our presence known in the universe.

In a new feasibility study, the team says it could be possible to use laser technology as a beacon to attract the attention of alien astronomers, much like a planetary-scale porch light.

Using a laser focused through a huge telescope, the researchers say this ‘porch light’ could be seen from as far as 20,000 light-years away.



How stupid & naive are these people? I almost think they don't believe there is sentient life out there and just want to pocket the funding for their goofy projects. No sensible person who truly believes that alien civilizations are in the galaxy would propose a giant beacon to tell everyone we exist and where we are.

But - but - they don't mean us harm! I just know it!
