Earlier this week, the mysterious interstellar object Oumuamua was back in the headlines. It didn’t resurface because of any new observations or studies since its pass through our solar system back in late 2017, but rather because of a new paper that not-so-subtly hinted the object was actually of alien origin.
The paper, which was penned by researchers from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, talks about the behavior of the object as it looped around the Sun and zoomed back out into space. It highlights the fact that the object appeared to speed up as it left, wrapping up with some vague suggestions that maybe it was an alien ship or even a piece of extraterrestrial space junk. Not everyone in the scientific community is willing to take the theory at face value.
