#Oumuamua was 'alien rubbish' NOT a 400m space rock - Harvard expert

NASA scientists discuss importance of asteroid Oumuamua

Oumuamua was first discovered on October 19, 2017, by the University of Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS1 telescope, funded by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations (NEOO) Program. The cigar shaped rock was recorded to be travelling at blistering speeds of 196,000 mph (87.3 kmps) and was originally classified as a comet or an asteroid.

However, Harvard's Professor Avi Loeb believes the bizarre object that entered the solar system in 2017 was no regular space rock.

Instead, the world-famous astronomer has controversially argued Oumuamua could actually be evidence of intelligent alien life.

Harvard University’s distinguished Department of Astronomy chair has revealed in his new book how aliens may have recently deposited some space trash in our cosmic neighbourhood.

Professor Loeb's book, Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth, outlines his case for why a related object that entered our solar system may be evidence for alien life’s existence.

On September 6, 2017, an object originating from the star Vega 25 light-years distant, collided with Earth’s atmosphere, before bouncing towards the Sun on September 9.

By the end of the month, the anomaly was hurtling towards Venus at 58,900mph (94,790kmh).

This object then returned, coming close to Earth on October 7 before it began "moving swiftly toward the constellation Pegasus and the blackness beyond," Professor Loeb wrote.

Earth’s most well-defined telescope, the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System on Hawaii first spied the object.
