In 2017, an alien object entered our solar system. Named “Oumuamua,” it behaved like a comet, except for its unusual shape, oblong, like a cigar. Additionally, when it approached the sun, it defied the normal behavior for a comet; rather than slowing down as it grew closer, it bounced itself back.
From my own perspective, I appreciate news like this, because it seems written from a neutral standpoint. It describes the phenomenon in scientific terms, and doesn’t rush to attribute it to either a natural phenomenon or an intelligent life form (although it’s suggestive of intelligence). I’d like to believe in extraterrestrial life, and news like this is helpful to developing my understanding of the topic.
