Hot on the heels of a recent development in South Africa in the search for clues supporting the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, more evidence that a major asteroid impact occurred nearly 13 millennia ago has been unearthed in South Carolina. Studying core samples taken from White Pond, near Elgin, SC,
Astronomers have released their first analysis of our second known interstellar visitor, comet 2I/Borisov, and these findings show that despite the comet’s extra-solar origins, the materials that this alien visitor is made of are downright familiar. First spotted on August 30, 2I/Borisov’s orbital path was quickly determined to follow a
Astronomers have discovered what may be our Solar System’s second known interstellar visitor, a comet that is moving too fast on a highly eccentric orbit to be bound by the Sun’s gravity. This follows the passage of the asteroid (or perhaps spacecraft?) known as ‘Oumuamua through our Solar System in
Interstellar Interloper ‘Oumuamua may have been an Extraterrestrial Spacecraft, according to Harvard Astronomers
A controversial paper has been published by astronomers at Harvard University that suggests that that the odd behavior being exhibited by the interstellar object known as ‘Oumuamua might actually be an artificial object that was built by an extraterrestrial civilization in the form of a solar-powered "lightsail".
