BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – Archive footage shows the mysterious space rock called Oumuamua, that was spotted a year ago by the University of Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS1 telescope whizzing past the sun at 196,000 mph (around 315,000 kph).

Researchers from Harvard University have now theorised that Oumuamua could be a UFO spacecraft, “a probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilisation.”

The first known interstellar object to arrive in the solar system could be “a debris from an advanced technological equipment”, according to a new study, suggesting it could be propelled by solar radiation.

The paper, which has also received criticism by other scientists, submitted by astronomists Abraham Loeb and Shmuel Bialy, will be published on November 12 in ‘The Astrophysical Journal Letters.’

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Surely an a**l probe for those Harvard profs that are intellectually constipated with their bloated sense of self-worth.
