A pair of #Harvard scientists say a massive, fast-moving visitor to our solar system may have been a probe sent by an alien civilization. Most astronomers believe #Oumuamua – #Hawaiian for "#messenger " or "#scout " – is a #comet or an #asteroid , except a half a mile long. But there are things about its behavior they can't quite explain. Enter two Harvard scientists with an idea even they admit is a little out there, reports CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil.
When Oumuamua was discovered last October, it was tumbling past the sun at 196,000 mph. To some the reddish object looked like a cigar. Others thought it was shaped like a #pancake . "It looks very different from objects that we have found in the solar system," said #AviLoeb , chair of the Harvard University #astronomy department. Loeb said Oumuamua did not behave like an ordinary asteroid or give off gas like a comet. "There seemed to be an extra force that is pushing it, and it's not clear what this push is from," he added.
In an upcoming paper, he and colleague offer what they call a "more #exotic scenario... Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to earth vicinity by an alien civilization." According to their #calculations , Oumuamua is less than a millimeter thin, but very wide like a sail, harnessing solar radiation to propel itself – similar to the spaceship used by Count Dooku in the "#StarWars " films.
Round and Around- Behind the Music- Pt. 1. Full Video on Youtube, Link in Bio. I am so grateful this new song, Round and Around could help you to cope with life in some way. The story behind how I wrote the song shows that all of us go through heavy trials, but finding the positive in our present situation can make all the difference in our personal growth. It is my hope that this story may inspire you to not give up. So many people get so downhearted by their challenges that instead of allowing it to mold them, they allow it to fold them. Depression is an ugly beast that can forcefully dominate our way of thinking at times. I hope this song and my story can encourage you that your not alone and you can grow from this. You will be a much more stronger and beautiful person by smiling through your scars and you will find yourself happier that you endured.
