Interstellar Visitor:Scientists Have Detected An ‘Organic Shell’ That Hides Its True Shape
Oumuamua is the interstellar object that passed through the Solar System back in October, but now scientists think that the object might not be what it first appears to be. The object might have an organic coat that is able to mask its true appearance.
Nostradamus is quoted as saying mankind would discover a machine in space that was sent to us by the aliens in 2017! Oumuamua?
Scientists said that Oumuamua is an asteroid that arrived in the Solar System from another planetary system. The reasoning behind it was that it did not have a coma of gas and dust around it, which is something seen on icy comets when they begin to melt or sublimate.
In 1899: Tesla developed a high-voltage, radio transmission equipment in Colorado Springs. Tesla announced that he was receiving a electrical signal which appears to intelligent. The signal was clearly repeated periodically with such a clear suggestion of number and order. This lead him to believe that the signal was extraterrestrial communication with aliens. At first he assumed they were originating from Mars. Later he changed that opinion and stated in one of his new conferences that the signal was coming from somewhere else in space. ¹
Does not surprise me that Tesla knew of communications from extra-terrestrials, and many thought him to be a lunatic. When in fact he invented many things the government has kept from the public.
A few years later: Guglielmo Marconi was intercepted a strange unknown artificial signal.
Then in March of 1960, another mysterious satellite was discovered orbiting earth. This mystery satellite was in polar orbit feat that neither the US nor Russian were capable of at that time. The soviet satellites were inclined at 65 degree angle with the equator.
It was calculated that the weight object to about 15 tons, which is far too heavy for rocket of that era. It also traveled twice as fast as any known satellite at the time. The object was sighted and studied by many of the astronomers across the country. This is what Robert L. Johnson, director of the Adler Planetarium had to say about the object,
THE OBJECT,’ JUDSON SAID, ‘DOESN’T EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO MAINTAIN A REGULAR SCHEDULE,LIKE ANY OTHER HEAVENLY OR MAN MADE OBJECT HE’S EVER SEEN.’ ‘WE DON’T KNOW WHEN TO WATCH FOR IT.’ he says.” It appears some nights, and some nights it doesn’t.
Latest Observations Suggest Object Could Have Protective Layer
Now the latest observations by scientists of Oumuamua suggest that the object has a surface layer that is organic rich. This may suggest that it might give protection to an ice-rich interior and protect it from being vaporized during the close encounter with the Sun. The lead author of the study, Alan Fitzsimmons, said that when the asteroid was first detected, it did not show any signs of there being cometary activity. Scientists now have the spectra of the object, and this has revealed that it is similar to objects that are ice-rich which are found in the outer Solar System.
He went on to say that when talking about the spectra; they are referring to the measurement of light from the object along with what elements the asteroid is made from. In the case of Oumuamua, it has a carbon layer on the surface, which the scientists have referred to as an organic coat.
Scientists Expected To See Ice On Asteroid But There Was None
The asteroid had passed 0.25 astronomical units close to the Sun and then went out of the Solar System. Scientists revealed that as the proximity was so close, they would have expected to be able to see some signs that the ice was turning from a solid into a gas, which is called sublimation. However, this did not turn out to be so, and this is the main reason the scientists thought that it was an asteroid and was devoid of any ice. Now the latest study has suggested that it might have been icy and in turn, this changes how it could have been made in the planetary system where it originated from.
Many Questions about the Object Remain Unanswered
Fitzsimmons said that the scientists know that it was not like any other asteroid that is found close to the Sun. He went on to say that previously they have thought that many objects that get thrown out of the solar system when planets are forming have been icy and this object fits in with those expectations. The object is unusual, and there are still many questions that have remained unanswered. At the moment scientists do not have any idea where it came from or its age, scientists have guessed at a limit of 10 billion years.
Scientists are now hoping they will be able to find more interstellar objects in the future and discover what they are made of and whether or not they have ice as it could reveal more about how other planetary systems have been formed.
