Outlandish Alien Spacecraft Theory By Harvard Unv. Dismissed By Scientists

Recent claims by Harvard University researchers that an interstellar rock, zooming through our solar system, might have been sent by aliens has been dubbed an “outlandish idea” by astrophysicists.

The research letter, by two Harvard astronomers, admitted that while it was an “exotic scenario”, the cigar-shaped rock named ‘Oumuamua’ “may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization.”

Oumuamua, the first known interstellar object to enter our solar system, is 1,300 feet long (400 meters) long and about 130 feet wide. First observed by space telescopes in October 2017, the pointy space rock picked up speed when passing the Sun – making the researchers think it may run on sunlight. They say this “unexplained phenomena” means it would have to have a “very large surface and be very thin”, which they say is “not encountered in nature”.

Their paper is due to be published in ‘Astrophysical Journal Letters’ on November 12.

Now, that theory has been challenged, as a figment of an overly active imagination, by scientists who say it’s a nice idea, but simply not accurate.

“Like most scientists, I would love there to be convincing evidence of alien life, but this isn’t it,” Alan Fitzsimmons, an astrophysicist at Queen’s University, Belfast, told the AFP.

Fitzsimmons added that Oumuamua’s observed characteristics have already been shown as “consistent with a comet-like body ejected from another star system”, while “some of the arguments in this study are based on numbers with large uncertainties.”

That sentiment is shared by Katie Mack, an astrophysicist at North Carolina State, who tweeted that excited alien hunters need to understand that “scientists are perfectly happy to publish an outlandish idea if it has even the tiniest sliver of a chance of not being wrong.”

“But until every other possibility has been exhausted dozen times over, even the authors probably don’t believe it,” she cautioned.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
