Stargazers from university from Harvard they are convinced that a a weird object that he believed as an asteroid was an extraterrestrial spacecraftbecause the object speeds up speed instead of decreasing it.
The investigation, to be published on November 12, suggests Oumuamua – as it is known – "This can be a probe intentionally sent to the neighborhood of Earth by extraterrestrial civilization."
"After a careful analysis of how the interstellar object accelerated as the sun went full speed, they said that Oumuamua could be the spacecraft displaced by space through the light falling to its surface," they said. Avi Loeb, Head of Department of Astronomy and Institution Shmuel Bialy, a researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
"If we take into account artificial origin, one possibility is that Oumuamua is a solar powered sail that floats in the interstellar space such as waste from some advanced technology. the more exotic scenario is that Oumuamua is a fully operational probe"explained astronomers, according to what the universe has published today.
Scientists claim that this reddish object does not belong to the Sun's system because its strange form does not correspond to known bodies or phenomena. "The more I study this subject, the stranger seems to me, and I wonder if it can be an artificial probe sent by an alien civilization"Loeb said.
The theory suggests that the facility has an artificial origin and that it has been designed by an advanced civilization for inter-urban exploration. In other words, it is an ancient alien ship that has lost its function.
When faced with skeptics, scientists say: Why then did he not experience the cleansing when he was closer to our Sun? In addition, they cite other research that showed that if the digestion was responsible for acceleration, it would also trigger a rapid evolution in Oumuamav (a phenomenon that was not observed).
