This link, per Jason Major, is to a draft PDF download of the paper that spurred this discussion. Of course we all want the answer to every cosmic question to be (friendly) aliens, but that low mass-to-area “solar sail” hypothesis is certainly believable, given Oumuamua’s unusual shape.


Original post (and first update)

Oumuamua has been tumbling through interstellar space for a LONG time.

Also, per the reference at that link, it’s apparently red!



Update, July 1, 2018: Huh, that’s weird.
