    Bizarre Interstellar Asteroid Is Unlike Any Observed In Solar System



    Astronomers are still debating the origins of the first confirmed interstellar object to pass through our solar system, now known as 1I/2017 U1 (`Oumuamua). But an international observing team of professional astronomers says that this highly-elongated, 400-meter long asteroid may well have been wandering through the galaxy unattached to any star system for hundreds of millions of years. That is, long before its wholly unexpected encounter with our own solar system.https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/techn...cid=spartandhp

    yeah...but, if you're a star trek fan you know it looks a little like something else.

    Reminds me of:

    Rendezvous with Rama is a science fiction novel by British writer Arthur*C. Clarke first published in 1973. Set in the 2130s, the story involves a 50-kilometre (31*mi) cylindrical alien starship that enters Earth's solar system. The story is told from the point of view of a group of human explorers who intercept the ship in an attempt to unlock its mysteries.

    Looks like a penis. Perhaps it's a punishment. Some rocky demi-god had misbehaved and mother nature castrated him and condemned him to watch his junk wandering into space.
