Over a year ago, On October 19th, 2017 Astronomers saw an object flying through interstellar space into our solar system. On very first instance, the flying object through interstellar space, named as Oumuamua seems to be asteroid moving in the solar system.
But later on, the scientist at NASA and Astronomers on research found that this mysterious asteroid might be lightsail of artificial origin as the mysterious Oumuamua was found unexpectedly speeding up as it passed through the inner solar system.
Various studies have observed that the mysterious and advanced technological Oumuamua could be fully operational probe sent intentionally in our solar system after alien civilisation. The Oumuamua is likely very elongated, like a stubby cigar, and it’s tumbling through space.
“Professor Stephen Hawking once said that the interstellar aircraft shape would be a cigar or needle”.
Scientist is not convinced yet, there is still so much that is unknown about it. Scientist is still on research that whether the Oumuamua is a comet, asteroid or any spacecraft from any other solar system.
It was only observable for a couple of months, which left astronomers scrambling for telescope time, even scientist tried to identify whether the object was releasing any radio signals, but it was not. Scientist is still looking for any other signal to the identification of Oumuamua and this could lead to a better future. Let’s hope for the best!
