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.’
