Have Aliens Found Us? An Interview with the Harvard Astronomer Avi Loeb About the Mysterious Interstellar Object ‘Oumuamua | The New Yorker
I recently spoke by phone with Loeb, who was frustrated that scientists saw ‘Oumuamua too late in its journey to photograph the object. “My motivation for writing the paper is to alert the community to pay a lot more attention to the next visitor,” he told me. During our conversation, which has been edited and condensed for clarity, we discussed why Loeb thinks we need to consider the possibility that ‘Oumuamua was sent by aliens, the dangers of unscientific speculation, and what belief in an advanced extraterrestrial civilization has in common with faith in God.

SurelyHeavenWaits - Strange Lights In the Night Sky
Izuku is just your typical part-time college student. He works two jobs, lives at home with his mom, and has anxiety/depression so bad that it's crippling. Sure, sometimes he sees things that aren't there, hears whispers in empty rooms, notices strange lights that flicker in the night sky. But he's normal.

Oh, and his new dog? He's totally normal too. He's definitely not an alien.

If true, this could be one of the greatest discoveries in human history - U.S. News -
“The only hypothesis I could think of,” he relates, “is a push from solar radiation pressure. For that to work, the object would have to be very thin, less than a millimeter thick, in other words a type of pancake. In addition, the Spitzer Space Telescope found no evidence of heat emission from the object, and that means that it is at least 10 times more reflective than a typical comet or asteroid. What we have, then, is a thin, flat, shiny object. So I arrived at the idea of a solar sail: A solar sail is a spaceship that uses the sun for propulsion. Instead of using fuel, it is propelled ahead by reflecting light. In fact, it’s a technology that our civilization is developing at this very time.”

Story about eccentric meteorite hunters in search of a Peruvian meteorite |
I once had a talk with a professional meteorite hunter and compared to this, it sounded like a summer week of camping with some investigating that payed rent for the next two years.

17,380 words | When are two good friends not good friends? Sounds like the setup for a brilliant joke, right? Except when the joke mirrors real life. Tony and Steve are just very good friends. So why is it everyone thinks they're dating?
