At first, scientists believed that this unusual object form was simply a strange asteroid. Such a strange, very elongated form does not have a precedent of about 750 thousand. asteroids and comets in our solar system where they formed.
The aforementioned asteroid was observed in the Hawaii telescope and was called Oumuamua, which means "messenger" in Hawaii. The object has a length of about 400 m and a width of about 40 m. However, some attributes change the opinion of scientists and it is assumed that probably Oumuamua is not an asteroid, but a spacecraft from a civilization living in other parts of the world
This theory came to the researcher after observing that the mysterious object suddenly increased its speed and left the solar system in January this year, writes cnn.com.
"Given the artificial origin, one of the possibilities is that Oumuamua is an advanced spatial space technology," writes Astrophysical Journal Letters. Scientists believe the space ship can be powered by solar energy.
Astronomer Abraham Loeb of the University of Harvard is convinced that the prototype spacecraft is already built on Earth.
Together with his colleagues, Loeb believes Oumuamua's unusual trajectory and extraordinary speed can mean that this spacecraft is no longer used.
Oumuamua is the first object seen in the solar system, which is believed to have arrived outside our planetary system.
"We were fortunate enough to find our telescope in the right place at the right time to see this historic moment," said NASA planetary defense officer Lindley Johnson.
