Leading Astronomers: Oumuamua Is ‘Alien Probe With Broken Engines,’ Could Have Hostile Intentions
SHTF Plan ^ | 12-14-2017 | Mac Slavo

A leading astronomer studying the origins of the space object known as Oumuamua has come out declaring it’s an alien probe with broken engines. Dr. Jason Wright claims that Oumuamua’s movement is that of a craft that has lost power to its engines.

Right now, leading scientists are studying the odd “cigar-shaped” object which originated outside of our solar system. Teams lead by renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, are attempting to discover whether or not Oumuamua is alien or natural. If a radio signal is detected later today, scientists will “proceed with caution.”

Professor Avi Loeb, Professor of Astronomy at Harvard University, sais: “My recommendation, as in any dialogue, is that we first listen and do our best to understand what we are hearing. Once we figure this out, we can decide how to respond,” he said. “Overall, I am an optimist. I believe that a very intelligent civilization will be peaceful, and we could save ourselves millions or billions of years by learning from it. But there is also the possibility that such a civilization will have hostile intentions and risk our existence, so we should deliberate carefully in any future contact with them.”

According to the Daily Mail, Dr. Wright from Penn State University is already declaring it a spacecraft. Oumuamua is about a quarter of a mile long, 260 feet wide, and currently traveling at 196,000 mph. Rather than moving through space like other natural space rocks, astronomers believe that it is “tumbling” through our solar system.

‘”Such derelict craft would, if they are not traveling so fast that they escape the Galaxy, eventually ‘thermalize’ with the stars and end up drifting around like any other interstellar comet or asteroid,” Dr. Wright wrote in his blog. “In fact, since they (presumably) no longer have altitude

“Teams lead by renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, are attempting to discover whether or not Oumuamua is alien or natural.”

Are the evolutionists going to develop a criterion for identifying Intelligent Design?

Is this another example of "settled science"?

Many of us that are enlightened and knowledgeable of evolutionary processes are also knowable of accretionary processes.

The universe is everywhere subject to gravity. Every particle has gravitational attraction to other particles. Gravity draws them together. that is, particles accrete into solids that accrete into other solids that in space are attracted and accrete into larger bodies.

The object in question is long and slender. The question rises is how it was formed by accretionary processes.

I understand that in all seriousness the name of this thing is pronounced “Yo Mama.”

Let the yo mama so fat jokes commence.

The image at the top may be an actual photograph, while the second at the bottom is clearly and artist’s concept.

It will just need to leave behind a small ‘seed’ which will blossom into a 2-dimensional construct that will suck the entire system into it. Is life possible in a 2-dimensional world? We may find out soon ...

As for pajama boy Avi Loeb’s assertion that space faring cultures are likely friendly ... I just have to say, “Hahahahahaha, sucker.”

That’s the answer to Fermi’s Paradox - if there are alien civilizations, where are they?

Answer: hiding from other predators. No predator likes competition. Something we naively ignore.

Based on the Startship Identification Guide, it may be an extended variation of a Rebel Alliance Corillian Battleship.
