Initially, scientists thought this very unusual form of the object was simply a weird asteroid. Such a strange, very elongated shape has no precedent of about 750 thousand. asteroids and comets in our solar system, where they formed.
This asteroid was spotted in the Hawaiian telescope and named Oumuamu, meaning "messenger" in the Hawaiian language. The building is about 400 meters long and about 40 meters wide. However, certain attributes change the minds of scientists and it is believed that perhaps Oumuamua is not an asteroid, but a spaceship from a civilization that lives in other parts of the world
This theory came into research after noting that this mysterious object suddenly increased its speed and left the solar system in January this year, writes cnn.com.
"Considering artificial origin, one possibility is that Oumuamua is a light, advanced space technology based on the universe," writes Astrophisical Journal Letters. Scientists believe that a spacecraft can be powered by solar energy.
Astronomer Abraham Loeb of the Harvard University is convinced that a prototype space ship has been built on Earth.
Together with colleagues, Loeb believes that the unusual Oumuamu trajectory and the enormous speed can mean that this spaceship is no longer in use.
Oumuamua is the first object to be seen in the solar system, which is believed to have arrived outside our planetary system.
"We were lucky enough to find our telescope in the right place at the right time to see this historic moment," NASA Defense Planner Linda Johnson said.
