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.

A group of theoretical physicists led by controversial Oxford University mathematical physicist Roger Penrose has offered new evidence that there may have been older universes that came before our own, by finding the ghosts of black holes that existed in those ancient universes.
The newly-plotted orbital path of a recently discovered trans-Neptunian object has added new fuel to the growing body of evidence that there is a planet of substantial size orbiting in the far reaches of our solar system. The highly-eccentric orbit of this dwarf planet fits perfectly–and indeed can currently only be explained by–the presence of the mysterious Planet Nine.
