‘Civilization VI’ Coming To Nintendo Switch In November

  ‘Civilization VI’ Coming To Nintendo Switch In November Turn-based strategy game “Sid Meier’s Civilization VI” is coming to Nintendo Switch on Nov. 16, publisher 2K announced on Friday. For those not familiar with the long-running franchise, “Civ VI” lets players build empires, research technologies, and conquer their enemies as one of history’s most renowned leaders. They can establish a great trading empire as Cleopatra, engage in diplomacy as Ghandi, or flex their military might as Teddy Roosevelt. “Civ VI” launched in 2016 and has won numerous accolades, including best strategy game at both The Game Awards and DICE Awards.

NASA may have ruled that Oumuamua, the first interstellar object ever spotted in our system is a "metallic or rocky object" approximately 400 meters (1,312 feet) in length and 40 meters (131 feet) wide, but a new study from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics says it could be something much more exciting – it could be "a lightsail of artificial origin" sent from another civilization.

Have scientists finally found proof of Planet X? Unusual orbit of an object two and a half times further from the sun than Pluto suggests the presence of a TENTH world in the solar system

  Have scientists finally found proof of Planet X? Unusual orbit of an object two and a half times further from the sun than Pluto suggests the presence of a TENTH world in the solar system The mysterious object identified by scientists at the Carnegie Institution for Science is one of the most distant bodies ever identified within the sun's gravitational range. Astronomers have discovered an object two and a half times further from the Sun than Pluto that adds to evidence of the existence of 'Planet X'.

The mysterious Oumuamua object that was spotted in the Solar System could be “a lightsail of Oumuamua, the study added, could be a “fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an “In only another four years, it will pass Neptune’s orbit on its way back into interstellar space

The study, which was posted online earlier this month, suggests that Oumuamua's strange "excess acceleration" could be artificial in nature, as it has been implied that it is not an active comet.

"Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that ‘Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment," researchers wrote in the paper.

The paper continues: "Lightsails with similar dimensions have been designed and constructed by our own civilization, including the IKAROS project and the Starshot Initiative. The lightsail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargos between planets or between stars."

Rocket carrying space station crew fails in mid air, crew safe - agencies

  Rocket carrying space station crew fails in mid air, crew safe - agencies Booster rockets carrying a Soyuz spacecraft with a Russian and a U.S. astronaut on board headed for the International Space Station failed mid-air on Thursday, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing, Russian news agencies reported. Agencies cited sources as saying that the crew was safe and was making an emergency landing in Kazakhstan where the unsuccessful launch took place.

A new study from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics says Oumuamua, the first interstellar object ever spotted in our solar system, could be 'a lightsail of artificial origin' sent from another civilization .

Oumuamua, the first interstellar object ever spotted in our solar system, has been in the spotlight recently after a study from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggested it could be "a lightsail of artificial origin" sent from another civilization . But that idea, while exciting to many, is

They even theorized that Oumuamua "may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization," though that scenario was called "exotic."

The paper was written by postdoctoral researcher Shmuel Bialy and professor Abraham Loeb, the director at the CfA's Institute for Theory and Computation.

Other studies have suggested that other "Oumuamua-like objects" will potentially enter our solar system, with some potentially carrying life.

"The likelihood of Galactic panspermia is strongly dependent upon the survival lifetime of the putative organisms as well as the velocity of the transporter," according to a paper published in The Astronomical Journal by Manasvi Lingam and the aforementioned Loeb.

They added: "Velocities between 10−100 km s−1 result in the highest probabilities. However, given large enough survival lifetimes, even hypervelocity objects traveling at over 1000 km s−1 have a significant chance of capture, thereby increasing the likelihood of panspermia."

INTERSTELLAR VISITOR 'OUMUAMUA' NEVER SHOULD HAVE LEFT HOME, THEORIES SAY

Panspermia is the hypothesis that life on Earth originated from microorganisms in outer space that were carried here unintentionally by objects such as space dust, meteoroids and asteroids, according to an article on NASA's website.

Oumuamua, which is the Hawaiian name for "pathfinder" or "scout," was discovered in October 2017 by the PanSTARRS1 telescope after it spotted a new spot of light coming from a strange direction at an unusually fast speed.

Since its discovery, researchers have debated whether it is a comet or an asteroid, though it was eventually determined to be a comet.

Oumuamua is traveling away from the Sun at a rate of approximately 70,000 mph, towards the outer part of the solar system. In approximately four years, it will whiz past Neptune's orbit, on its way to interstellar space.
