  • Scientists dispute 'alien spacecraft' suggestions!

    ALIENSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Sadly not so say scientists arguing among themselves

    Harvard researchers recently suggested the object may be a probe sent by an alien civilisation, but other scientists disagree.

    A cigar-shaped interstellar object that flew past the sun probably isn't an alien spacecraft, scientists are saying, despite the suggestion by researchers from Harvard University.
    Scientists have been trying to figure out what the 1,312ft (400m) object named Oumuamua might be after it was first spotted by a telescope in Hawaii in October 2017.
    The object's flat, elongated shape and reddish colour is from outside our solar system, according to the researchers.
    It was moving at 59,030mph when it was first tracked by scientists, and its unusual trajectory and high speed sets it aside from other space objects such as asteroids and comets.

    It looks like there are nutcases among scientists too...

      Such spacecrafts I produce every morning in the toilet

        400 meters long, then you really are full of crap

          There are some interesting points.
          - first object outside our solar system, even outside Oort cloud
          - shape unusual for common asteroids and comets
          - probably rotation along two axes
          - didn't slowed down as much as calculated, while swing-by in gravity field of our star
          - no gas emission while heating up of surface through sunlight, like many objects from our solar system
          - very low albedo (this object is practically dark red)

            Probably misreporting of a throwaway line from a scientist. The usual shit that goes on when the media reports science news.

            I'm surprised that far more such objects have not been observed so far in our solar system given that most stars most likely should have Oort Clouds as a remainder from material accretion during stellar and planetary formation. The sheer number of stars with exoplanets points to this being a highly likely and valid one.

            Over time, you would expect a lot of perturbation of these clouds by passing start to be going on and objects flying off into and out of the galactic region they originate from.

            As for the colour and shininess of the object - something with dust and a high water/ammonia ice content would place this object into the category of being an Oort Cloud object from some star at a guess. No "solar sail from an alien spacecraft" type bullshit required.

              That's quite likely in this case. Unfortunately, scientists are not immune to nutty ideas either. Two Russian scientists actually proposed that the Moon was a hollow spacecraft. Other Russian scientists also suggested that Mars' moons were hollow alien bases. All that vodka must affect your judgement after a while...

                99% of the sensationalist reports regarding scientists / technology people that get reported, even in supposedly reputable media, are total bullshit. Sometimes scientists even troll journalists within listening distance and see what happens.
