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'.

A mysterious object that passed through our solar system last year may have been part of a vessel sent by an alien entity to investigate Earth. According to the authors, similar lightsails have been constructed by scientists on Earth and can be used for transportation of cargo between planet or stars.

A mysterious object that passed through our solar system last year may have been part of a vessel sent by an alien entity to investigate Earth.

Research published earlier this month by the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics states that the object, called Oumuamua, is "the first object of interstellar origin observed in the Solar System."

Scientists push back against Harvard 'alien spacecraft' theory

Scientists push back against Harvard 'alien spacecraft' theory A scientific paper led by two researchers at Harvard University made a splash this week by claiming that a cigar-shaped rock zooming through our solar system may have been sent by aliens. The researchers noted in a pre-print of the article that it was an "exotic scenario," but that "Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization." require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

A mysterious object that passed through our solar system last year may have been part of a vessel sent by an alien entity to investigate Earth. Scientists have been puzzling over Oumuamua ever since the mysterious space object was observed tumbling past the sun in late 2017.

Scientists have been puzzling over 'Oumuamua ever since the mysterious space object was observed tumbling past the sun in late 2017. But its flattened, elongated shape and the way it accelerated on its way through the solar system set it apart from conventional asteroids and comets.

The cigar-shaped object was first discovered by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii on Oct. 19, 2017. It was given the Hawaiian name of Oumuamua, which means "A scout: one sent forward before a battle to discover the position of the enemy," according to A Dictionary of the Hawaiian Language. First suspected to be a comet, further analysis of the object "implies that Oumuamua is not an active comet."

Oumuamua was also thought to be an asteroid. However, scientists have now deemed it an object of interstellar origin – the first of its kind to be observed in the solar system.

But based on its characteristics and trajectories, researchers are now suggesting that Oumuamua "may be a fully operational probe sent internationally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization," calling it a "targeted probe."

A new “alien spacecraft” paper poses a challenge for astrophysicists

A new “alien spacecraft” paper poses a challenge for astrophysicists About a year ago, scientists using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii noticed what seemed to be a peculiar asteroid passing through our solar system. It…

Oumuamua, the first interstellar object spotted in the solar system , could very well be an alien spacecraft, two Harvard researchers say. The size of a stadium, Oumuamua is flat and elongated, and accelerated as it tumbled past the sun. It's very different from the typical asteroid or comet, and in a

It's the first intersteller object spotted in our solar system , which would already be mysterious by itself. The scientists didn't have a good explanation for why Oumuamua is moving the way it is Loeb thinks this object could be an alien spaceship. According to his theory, the object is moving so

The research theorizes that Oumuamua could possibly have been debris from advanced technology that was traveling in space.

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

During its flight, Oumuamua experienced "excess acceleration," or boosts in speed, which scientists believe resulted from solar radiation pressure. This fluctuation in speed, the object's "unusual geometry" and other "various anomalies" could be the result of "space debris of equipment that is not operational anymore." Rather, it is now simply "floating at the characteristic speed of stars relative to each other in the solar neighborhood."

According to the authors, similar lightsails have been constructed by scientists on Earth and can be used for transportation of cargo between planet or stars.

Unfortunately, Oumuamua left the solar system in January and it is now too late to capture images of the mysterious object. However, scientists say "thousands of interstellar Oumuamua-like space debris are expected to be trapped at any given time in the solar system."
