Initially, scientists thought this very unusual object was simply a weird asteroid. Such a strange, very elongate shape is not a precedent of about 750 thousand. asteroids and comets in our solar system where they are formed.
The said asteroid was detected by the Hawaii telescope and called Oumuamua, which means "messengers" in Hawaii. The object is about 400 m long and only about 40 m wide. However, some features change the opinion of scientists, and it is considered that perhaps Oumuama is not an asteroid, but a spacecraft from other parts of the world inhabited by civilization
This theory came to the researcher after having found that a mysterious object suddenly increased its speed and left the solar system in January this year, writes cnn.com.
"Given Artificial Origin, one of the possibilities is that Oumuamua is a light space space-based space technology," writes Astrophysical Journal Letters. Scientists believe that spacecraft can be used with solar energy.
Abraham Loeb, astronomer at Harvard University, is convinced that the prototype spacecraft has already been built on Earth.
Loeb believes with his colleagues that Oumuamua's unusual movement and huge speed may mean that this spacecraft is no longer in use.
Oumuamu is the first object of the solar system that is believed to have come out of our planetary system.
"We did have the opportunity to find our telescope in the right place at the right time to see this historic moment," said NASA's Planetary Defense Secretary Lindley Johnson.
