This Is The Kind Of Balloon Juice That Gets On My MSN Feed

I post the entire story because I want you to read how stupid this article is. I love the name they gave this rock which only further freaks me out because someone out there will believe this is a scout ship from another alien race. That of course is stupid. You egg heads are not helping one bit. Come back to me when you have a selfie of yourself and the ALIEN from this SHIP you idiots. The wrong people will take this information and start to stockpile even more ammunition, tampons and canned goods without labels because they are cheaper. And to any 'aliens' out there. You would be smart just to pass us by because we don't even like each other. You have no idea what kind of trouble we would make for you especially if you taste like chicken.

A huge object passing by Earth could be an alien spacecraft, scientists have said.

The bizarre cigar-shaped entity was previously thought to be an interstellar asteroid which had come from another part of the galaxy.

But evidence has been mounting which has led experts to suggest it could actually be a sign of intelligent life.

The object is hundreds of metres in length but only one tenth as wide which is highly unusual for a typical space rock, scientists have said.

It is also speeding through space at 196,000 mph, suggesting it is not gravitationally bound to the sun. 

The mysterious body, which has been dubbed “Oumuamua”, was spotted by astronomers from the University of Hawaii in October as it passed the Earth at around 85 times further than the moon.
It is the first object discovered in the solar system that appears to have originated from another part of the galaxy.

Researchers involved in Seti - the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence – are preparing to turn a powerful dish telescope towards the object.

A statement from the $100 million (£75 million) Seti project Breakthrough Listen, launched by Russian digital tech mogul Yuri Milner in 2015, said: "Researchers working on long-distance space transportation have previously suggested that a cigar or needle shape is the most likely architecture for an interstellar spacecraft, since this would minimise friction and damage from interstellar gas and dust.

"While a natural origin is more likely, there is currently no consensus on what that origin might have been, and Breakthrough Listen is well positioned to explore the possibility that Oumuamua could be an artifact."

The team is using the Green Bank radio telescope in West Virginia, US, to study Oumuamua, which is named after the Hawaiian term for "scout" or "messenger".

From 8pm UK time on Wednesday, December 13, the giant dish - the largest fully steerable radio telescope in the world - will "listen" to the object across four radio frequency bands spanning one to 12 gigahertz.

The object is currently about two astronomical units (AU) from Earth, or twice the distance between the Earth and sun.

Breakthrough Listen aims to survey a million nearby stars and 100 nearby galaxies looking for alien signals.

there have been more than 98 Seti projects around the world, none of which have turned up any convincing evidence of extra-terrestrial civilizations.

"While a natural origin is more likely". The operative statement I believe. Or it could be the Devil's toothpick.

Now THAT would be interesting. Great name btw.

You can thank that big cup of thick, Italian hot chocolate I had this morning before work. Makes your hair stand on end.
