Found space object proves we are not alone

Humans have been sending out “probes” into our solar system and beyond in efforts to detect far off planets and other objects within our solar system, but it was never contemplated that we would see a “probe” that did not come from our planet; that is, until now.

We are not the only ones looking and listening.

This probe came from an alien planet and it may not be the only probe out there. When a probe is sent into the cosmos the signals sent from the probe back to its own world gets weaker the further away it travels. To maintain the signal, it is reasonable to believe subsequent probes were sent to follow the first one creating a chain of probes transmitting the images back to the probe behind it. The following probe that in turn relays these signals to the following probe. This chain communication guaranties a continual scan of the cosmos in its path.

Interstellar object may have been alien probe, Harvard paper argues, but experts are skeptical

By Steve George and Ashley Strickland, CNNUpdated 1:43 PM EST, Tue November 6, 2018CNN) —

A mysterious cigar-shaped object spotted tumbling through our solar system last year may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth, astronomers from Harvard University have suggested.

The object, nicknamed ‘Oumuamua, meaning “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past” in Hawaiian, was discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii.

Since its discovery, scientists have been at odds to explain its unusual features and precise origins, with researchers first calling it a comet and then an asteroid before finally deeming it the first of its kind: a new class of “interstellar objects.”

A new paper by researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics raises the possibility that the elongated dark-red object, which is 10 times as long as it is wide and traveling at speeds of 196,000 mph, might have an “artificial origin.”

NASA SOLOR SYSTEM EXPLORATION

The first known interstellar object to visit our solar system, 1I/2017 U1 ‘Oumuamua, was discovered Oct. 19, 2017 by the University of Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS1 telescope, funded by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations (NEOO) Program, which finds and tracks asteroids and comets in Earth’s neighborhood. While originally classified as a comet, observations revealed no signs of cometary activity after it slingshotted past the Sun on Sept. 9, 2017 at a blistering speed of 196,000 miles per hour (87.3 kilometers per second). It was briefly classified as an asteroid until new measurements found it was accelerating slightly, a sign it behaves more like a comet.In Depth | Oumuamua – NASA Solar System Exploration

This probe came from an alien planet and it may not be the only probe out there.

That cigar-shaped thing that whizzed through the solar system? We can't really know as it happened so fast.

FrankieTeardrop - 22 Jan 2021 21:17:39 (#3 of 347)

Why is it people alway forget about the Unidentified part of Unidentified Flying Object, and make up any old Reckon about what it might be instead?

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:19:30 (#4 of 347)

To be fair, it was unique in our observations of the solar system. But that doesn't mean it's some aliens. I haven't read the report though.

Dubris - 22 Jan 2021 21:19:54 (#5 of 347)

Even if the object is all you suggest, greenapple, who's to say that whatever sent it hasn't been dead for millions of years? Don't expect flying saucers to arrive just yet.

HorstVogel - 22 Jan 2021 21:20:09 (#6 of 347)

to me it looked like a funny shaped astroid

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:24:05 (#7 of 347)

Maybe greenapple has been sent to probe us.

HorstVogel - 22 Jan 2021 21:25:33 (#8 of 347)

In disguise

thisonehasalittlehat - 22 Jan 2021 21:26:14 (#9 of 347)

There's no known physical process that can produce a cigar shaped asteroid other than hand rolling.

Proof of intergalactic space giants?

CarlosFandango - 22 Jan 2021 21:26:50 (#10 of 347)

Definite proof.

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:26:59 (#11 of 347)

Hippy space giants

thisonehasalittlehat - 22 Jan 2021 21:27:24 (#12 of 347)

Is not doobie shaped.

solomongursky - 22 Jan 2021 21:27:25 (#13 of 347)

who's to say that whatever sent it hasn't been dead for millions of years?

Plus that would invalidate the insurance.

thisonehasalittlehat - 22 Jan 2021 21:28:22 (#14 of 347)

Fucking big probe all I'll say. Have they not invented efficiency these aliens.

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:30:18 (#15 of 347)

It's an intergalactic suppository

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:30:56 (#16 of 347)

French space aliens

phantlers - 22 Jan 2021 21:31:04 (#17 of 347)

Might even be one of ours, back from the future.

Dubris - 22 Jan 2021 21:31:46 (#18 of 347)

Is it being followed by an intergalactic bidet?

tasselhoff - 22 Jan 2021 21:32:51 (#19 of 347)

They'll be here soon, after their 1.5 millennia lunch break.

HouseOfLametta - 22 Jan 2021 21:33:07 (#20 of 347)

It looks like a cat shit.
