    Must have been a quiet day on the scientific news desk.

    It would be a shame if people are willing to put their academic careers on the line over what appears to be such a ridiculous proposition.

    Unfortunately, the paper isn't there to be read yet. This may be a pair of scientists using the media to get a great deal of publicity for what turns out to be a pretty mundane piece of research.

    Picture this: A flying saucer lands in the forecourt of a filling station. A ramp lowers and an alien walks down it. The alien then approaches one of the pumps, removes the hose, and taking hold of the dispensing handset says to the pump 'Take me to your leader.' Well - stranger things have happened? [​IMG]

    "Now a pair of Harvard researchers are raising the possibility that Oumuamua is an alien spacecraft. As they say in a paper to be published Nov. 12 in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, the object "may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization."

    It is extremely unlikely any civilization would see what us humans do and send a big a$$ ship to check us out in person. IF someone came here we would never even know unless they wanted us to.

    Yeah, go through all that effort to send a probe that makes one quick past through the solar system. Must have been a government project. ;-)

    Unless they crash. Surely even advanced spacefarers have accidents.

    One thing's for sure though - so far as the western hemisphere is concerned, there ain't much intelligent life down here.

    Oi, who said 'They'd know that if they read your posts!' :eekeyes: :evileye:

    Oh ... that's what the jerk in the White House always means when he talks about evil, illegal allies? I always thought he was talking about Latinos ...

    Or by accident or damage. Earth could resemble an aligned world from a distance.
