Harvard Astronomer Avi Loeb joins Whitley to discuss his theory that Oumuamua, the first interstellar object to be detected moving through our solar system, could have been an extraterrestrial spacecraft. When the longest-serving chair of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard declared that he thought there was reason to believe
Although the first known interstellar object to pass through our Solar System has long since passed beyond our reach, the Harvard astrophysicist that first proposed that ʻOumuamua might have been an artificial object built by an extraterrestrial civilization has expanded on the concept. In an interview with Salon magazine about his new
Astrophysicists are back to square one in trying to attach a conventional explanation to the oddity presented by ʻOumuamua, the first known interstellar object to pass through the Solar System. While making its close pass to the Sun, ʻOumuamua sped up ever so slightly, prompting at least one prominent researcher to speculate
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".
