Alien spacecraft or asteroid? Harvard researchers say spacecraft!


Alien spacecraft or asteroid? For over a year, scientists have been tracking an object that defies explanation. Now, Harvard researches claim that it is an alien probe.

Alien spacecraft or asteroid has been the popular question since scientists discovered the unusual space object dubbed Oumuamua. Since 2017, it has been tracked and observed. Part of the reason why it is of high interest is the way it has been traveling through space.

It doesn’t look like any asteroid known to man. As a matter of fact, it is cigar shaped and resembles one of the most popular types of UFOs that are reported. Apparently, some researchers at Harvard began doing an in-depth study of the object and have determined that it is a spacecraft!

Hard to believe but there will be a paper published on Nov. 12 concerning the subject according to NBC News.  Avi Loeb, one of the writers and chairman of the Harvard astronomy department had this to say when he was asked, “Who would send a spacecraft our way and why?”

"“It is impossible to guess the purpose behind Oumuamua without more data. If Oumuamua is a lightsail, one possibility is that it was floating in interstellar space when our solar system ran into it, like a ship bumping into a buoy on the surface of the ocean.”"

Loeb and his partner, Shmuel Bialy believe this could explain the irregularities in its trajectory. The object appeared to have accelerated at various junctures as if it was being propelled by a “lightsail of artificial origin.”

Could this be one of the reasons why the government has starting looking into creating a “Space Force?” Stephen Hawking observed that if aliens suddenly showed up one day their intentions would not be hospitable.

Then again, we routinely send probes into our galaxy and beyond to explore and collect data. What if Oumuamua’s creators (if it is a spacecraft) only wanted to exercise their prime directive to watch our activity for research purposes?

While it would be exciting to have something from another world seek us out, more than likely, that is not the case. Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at SETI and the voice of reason remarked:

"“One should not blindly accept this clever hypothesis when there is also a mundane (and a priori more likely) explanation for Oumuamua — namely that it’s a comet or asteroid from afar.”"

Shostak is not alone in his conclusion. Other men of science echo his sentiments. Only time will tell and further observation will determine exactly what this space traveling object truly is which may be impossible since it has left our solar system.

Perhaps we will never solve the mystery of Oumuamua. What may come out of this is further research and development into lightsails. Loeb feels that “A survey for lightsails as technosignatures in the solar system is warranted.”

Do you feel that this could be a craft from outside our solar system? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. We want to hear from you.
