After Oumuamua’s shocking appearance in our system, researchers from the Breakthrough Listen project pointed mechanical ears at it to see if they could hear signals being sent too or from the object. If it were an alien ship, surely it would be communicating with its handlers and we might be able to hear those whispers, or at least that was the plan. Unfortunately, the team heard only silence, but that isn’t stopping some researchers from imagining the possibility of Oumuamua being a spacecraft sent to survey our Solar System or even Earth, specifically.

In a new paper, scientists from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics break down the case for the cigar-shaped object being of extraterrestrial origin. More to the point, they focus on the object’s strange speed changes as it passed through and exited our system. Oumuamua sped up as it left, which is obviously very odd behavior for a rock, which led some scientists to assume it was a comet, spewing out gas and material as it cruised back out into interstellar space.

This new paper suggests that it might be speeding up because it’s equipped with what is known as a “light sail.” A light sail is an advanced, but still theoretical, form of spacecraft propulsion that would use radiation pressure from a star to push an object along, like wind on a sailboat’s sail. If solar particles slam into the sail, it causes the sail and whatever it’s attached to to speed up.

“Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment,” the paper explains, noting the possibility that it might just be a piece of alien space junk that found its way to our system. However, the team follows up with an even more wild theory, saying “a more exotic scenario is that Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization.”

Source Wait a second, was that weird interstellar object an alien spacecraft after all?

Certainly it could be an alien spaceship, would be difficult to prove this, but it is equally difficult to prove the contrary
Life is born on the planet Earth but it is not an exclusive, and in the same way it will born elsewhere, maybe before us.

There are billions of galaxies, billions of stars and planets and this allows to assert that even if only 0.01% of the planets have the optimal conditions for the development of life, there would be hundreds of thousands of places where it exists, and if only 1% of them have intelligent forms of life then in the universe we have thousands of extraterrestrial civilizations.

The only reason I posted this is that they mentioned in the article that it accelerated as it left our galaxy, it was already going so fast that they barely had time to observe it and it's direction never changed, which rules out any kind of gravitational effect, very mysterious, otherwise it was just another asteroid.

Indeed and I remember the scientists tried to detect radio waves coming from this object, but no luck. But we should ask ourselves if radio waves emissions mean forms of alien technology, or we think only according to our understanding, and in this case, the radio waves might not be crucial.

I think the article you've posted addresses the research in a different way so there is a logic in this and Oumuamua might actually be an alien ship.
If this were confirmed, this would be an exceptional discovery.

Sadly due to its trajectory and speed there was no way that we could have caught up on it to study it.
If aliens were more advanced than we are, wouldn't they be more slick about this? Maybe they are using this to distract us from an even bigger probe right in our backyards?

We are toys for aliens, in fact, we are just a project for someones homework, it's out off our brain knowledge to get answers about why we are here and at the end of the day, it doesn't matter. Gov's work with higher intelligence creatures since ancient times, it's just a secret, because masses will freak out, also, if aliens do exist.. it's in contradiction what is written in the bible.. if bible is not real.. then God isn't.. I look at the aliens as fallen angels, and so, that would make sense, I believe both versions.

Satan is ruler of our earth, its written down in holy scriptures, we are sent here for a reason, to seek repentance and not worship ungodly things, because by doing so, we will not be for eternity.

:eek:'Sometimes you see a mysterious object floating on the sea! That surely comes from the other side of the sea! '
:eek::eek:'No way?' ! There can not be land other than this continent where people can live! '
...Long ago, the startle that people would have felt when it first met with a foreigner or ship that came from the other side of the sea may be repeated again.

That depends on what books you read that were not included in the Bible as we know now days. Enoch was read for many years until it was removed form our Bible by Constantine. He was a page turned Christian. He is only mentioned in our version of the Bible as walking with God.
Why on earth would someone's books be removed if he walked with God? He tells of how the fallen angles taught man things out of this world etc.
had offspring that were giants. Goliath and his brothers were such. They had 6 fingers and toes. And Gog's bed was 13 feet long.

Because it's truth, and it needs to be hidden as for much eyes to read as possible.

I don't understand your answer.
Truth is what is hidden the most, we are not supposed to read what Enoch experience nor how would he see judgement day to be. Only thing we can do is seek repentance, we are living already in the end times, no man knows the time or date.
