'Oumuamua, a Large Cigar-Shaped Object In Space (You Know, Like You've Seen Ten Times in Star Trek), Maybe Be an Alien Probe, Theorize Harvard Researchers

Alert the obese Alien Finder Tom Nichols.

A mysterious cigar-shaped object spotted tumbling through our solar system last year may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth, astronomers from Harvard University have suggested.

The object, nicknamed 'Oumuamua, meaning "a messenger that reaches out from the distant past" in Hawaiian, was discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii.

Since its discovery, scientists have been at odds to explain its unusual features and precise origins, with researchers first calling it a comet and then an asteroid before finally deeming it the first of its kind: a new class of "interstellar objects."

A new paper by researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics raises the possibility that the elongated dark-red object, which is 10 times as long as it is wide and traveling at speeds of 196,000 mph, might have an "artificial origin."

"'Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization," they wrote in the paper, which has been submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

The astronomers are puzzled by its "excess acceleration" -- acceleration they say can't be explained by more mundane factors, like the pressure of gas being released from the object due to the Sun's heat -- and posit that maybe it has deployed a "light sail," which is a real (though little-used) method of passive propulsion by which one simply unfolds a very large and light sail and lets the outward pressure of the Sun's photons push a ship along. Literally a sail that is pushed by light pressure instead of wind pressure.

All of this is obviously boomer nonsense but I'm really tired so I'm not saying it's aliens but it is, to quote the show Tom Nichols is proud to be an "expert" on, it's definitely aliens.

Here's the actual paper proposing the "light sail" explanation for the object's "peculiar acceleration."

Warning: It's all math, and there are virtually no tits in it at all.

109 so to put this election in words everyone can understand, losing 63 seats in the house and 6 seats in his first midterm was the equivalent of obama getting surprise anal from michelle; which would be especially surprising since they have not been naked together in the same room for years.

while Trump only losing 30 odd seats in the house and gaining seats in the senate was the equivalent of him giving the democrats, especially nancy, surprising anal; which explains the constant surprised look she has.

254 Since this is now a latent physics thread, I a simple query for all those physics buffs out there:

How come I have never read a single time that thae question of whether the universe exists in a permanently expanding state, a steady state, or a contracting state, has been conclusively answered in favor of permanently expanding because of the following seemingly undisputed facts:

1.: The boundary of the universe must.necessarily be the leading edge of the farthest light waves/particles/whatever from the origin point of the universe.

Dos. Light travels in all directions simultaneously

Drei. Light travels at . . . wait for it . . . THE SPEED OF LIGHT.

Does this not mean that the universe MUST be expanding at the speed of light in all directions?

265 The Legendary Pink Dots wrote some of the best "first contact" music I'm aware of. IIRC most were named "Saucers" or "The Saucers are Coming" (and there were many more than one), with a recurring theme being panic and frantic music with a radio announcer telling people "we do not have everything under control!"

But one of their best is "A Terra Firma Welcome." We experiment on an alien and then the other aliens come to carry him home. Much more traditional music and accessible than the other saucer songs, too.

320 and posit that maybe it has deployed a "light sail," which is a real (though little-used) method of passive propulsion by which one simply unfolds a very large and light sail and lets the outward pressure of the Sun's photons push a ship along. Literally a sail that is pushed by light pressure instead of wind pressure.

I hate to give this sleazy pandering asshat credit, because I don't know if he invented this idea, but Ridley Scott seemed to showcase this idea in Alien: Covenant. In the opening scenes the ship did exactly that - it unfolded a large sail like structure. Maybe these aliens somehow hacked our cinema, watched Covenant and culturally appropriated Scott's idea.

From what I understand, in the first seconds of the universe, space was expanding faster than the speed of light. And some physicists believe that it still can expand faster than the speed of light. Since space and time are inextricably linked, I don't know how the time factor comes into play.

381 If the light pressure is always outward from the sun, I would think that your steering ability would be nonexistant.

Now if you had a minimum of some other thruster, and the ability to deploy and retract the sail, you could position yourself such that by moving outward un pressure you could plot a gravity assist path around the solar system, but that would be pretty slow going as far as getting to your destination.

At least California has a "budget surplus" on paper.

Voters of my state, NJ, just voted in a 500 million bond issue for "school security" and "water improvements" in a state that has an on paper debt of 221 billion dollars and a has a bond rating of junk status which means we will pay massive interest on those bonds.

415 50s or 60s sounds about right. Those guys were really thinking up some Neil Degrasse Tyson level ideas back then.

Now that I think about it, Pohl had written about it in one of his Heechee books that was probably written in the late 70s. IIRC it was an alien race with extremely slow metabolism that had difficulty communicating with outside lifeforms because one word took hours to say. Sailing through space suited them fine.

The first couple of books of that series were so good.

Sessions has been sent to Carousel in favor of someone whose jewel isn't glowing, and whose jewels haven't been burnt off in a cookie baking accident at a factory inside a hollow tree.

Same day, Dems all about announce their heretofore poorly-concealed intentions to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump.

Also, an incandescent Trump let loose at a press conference, putting Dems and the media on notice.

All things considered, it sounds like "Trump vs. The World" is about to be on. I know who I'm betting on.

Lots of lefty nonsense.

Giggleheads.)

The wish for aliens is a cry for help. They hope that the aliens (who will be friendly of course) will help us thru the rough times (and also help them to erase the straights from existence with the new tech only given to the 'correct' people of the planet.)

Why all that should happen is a mystery to me and I used to be one of them. Until reality slapped me in the face and I realized why I so desired it to be.

Anyway, the AF finally got their shit together and got us a tanker, but our refueling door wouldn't open. Had to manually wrench it open, and finally took on fuel while sucking fumes. Good times.

So... the Geto Boys are not on the Right. But they're very very very very very anti-abortion. It's absolutely unmistakable.

If you listen to "The Unseen," it's a statement so clear and brutal that no one on the Right would dare make one half as strong in public, partly out of common decency, and partly out of cowardice.

They've also made many public statements to the black community at their shows and other events about ending abortion.

Yet - I've never once seen NARAL or pussyhats protest a Geto Boys show. Or even bitch about about them on social media.

530 Fun fact: we were NOT meant to be herbivores. We have a pouch (cecum) where the large intestine starts, but this is vestigial. It performs no function. In horses and rabbits, it is filled with bacteria that allows them to live on cellulose. We cannot do that, as ours has no such bacteria. We cannot live on veggies alone. The next time some vegan asshole accosts you, drop this truth bomb on them.

I told Mr.Jen at dinner when I saw that back and forth with Acosta, April Ryan, and one other jerk WH correspondent, that I personally was no longer impressed with Trump's handling of the press at his conferences. That I know that Trump loves these pecking matches with the press, but this was way over the line from Acosta, and these press conferences, which are watched all over the world by other governments, had devolved into the Trump/Acosta reality show and it makes Trump look hapless and unable to control his own press room.

So, I welcome this bit of good news, along with the jettison of Sessions. Makes the cluster that was the GOP losses in Michigan last night a bit less painful.

That is life. I'm not going to necessarily condemn someone for looking at a blast as something different than a "real" baby .... but it's alive. It's real. Iat is a real thing that exists. The blast which didn't implant? It was alive, and then it wasn't. It was a loss. My son grew.

I don't think that would work. You'd need two mirrors, one to collect the light and one to reflect it in the opposite direction, and I think the thrusts would cancel out in that case.

Posted by: Rodrigo Borgia at November 07, 2018 08:23 PM (vOkuK)

698 Well, the light is carrying momentum, and when it comes off the sail at a different angle than it struck it, the momentum vector has changed. There has to be a corresponding change in the momentum of the ship to compensate.


Maybe. I'm not sure. I once had one of those vacuum bulbs with the fins inside that spun from light pressure.

That's the extent of my practical light sail experience.

700 > If you had the sail hanging off just one side wouldn't that make you pull to the other?

Not really. There's no friction in space, so there's nothing to react against to make you pull to the side.

I think all that would do is make the ship rotate about its center of mass.

You have no keel so you would just rotate until the direction of pull lines up with your center of mass.

You could use a NERVA-style rocket to launch from Earth, (or if you needed to get somewhere in a hurry) and also use the nuke to power an ion drive if you could afford to take your time.

Shutting down the NERVA program was one of the many criminal acts the Vietnam-era Congress perpetrated.

Too bad most of those guys are beyond the reach of justice now.

For this thing to be solar sailing, they calculate that the surface can only be about .020" thick, if made of something light like aluminum. It's a giant animal balloon.

728 In the Earth Company Wars sequence of CJ Cherryh's novels, they use NERVA style propulsion for moving around in a system. So the bulk of the ships are giant water tanks. Between systems they have some kind of space warp/hyperspace tech.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at November 07, 2018 08:37 PM (yQpMk)

729 In later novels they seem to have figured out how to sort of stutter the warp drive on and off to move around a system.
