Mysterious object confirmed to be from another solar system
Astronomers have named interstellar object ’Oumuamua and its red colour suggests it carries organic molecules that are building blocks of life
By Stuart Clark

Astronomers are now certain that the mysterious object detected hurtling past our sun last month is indeed from another solar system. They have named it 1I/2017 U1(’Oumuamua) and believe it could be one of 10,000 others lurking undetected in our cosmic neighbourhood. The certainty of its interstellar origin comes from an analysis that shows its orbit is almost impossible to achieve from within our solar system. Its name comes from a Hawaiian term for messenger or scout. Indeed, it is the first space rock to have been identified as forming around another star. Since asteroids coalesce during the process of planet formation, this object can tell us something about the formation of planets around its unknown parent star. The latest analyses with ground-based telescopes show that ’Oumuamua is quite similar to some comets and asteroids in our own solar system. This is important because it suggests that planetary compositions like ours could be typical across the galaxy. It is thought to be an extremely dark object, absorbing 96% of the light that falls on its surface, and it is red. This colour is the hallmark of organic (carbon-based) molecules. Organic molecules are the building blocks of the biological molecules that allow life to function. It is widely thought that the delivery of organic molecules to the early Earth by the collision of comets and asteroids made life here possible. ’Oumuamua shows that the same could be possible in other solar systems.

Hei! I just discovered your tumblr and I love reading about life with a dog in Norway - I've always dreamed of living there and I intend to move to Norway as soon as I'm done with vet school here in Estonia. But how are the leash laws around there? Is it really so strict that it is absolutely forbidden to let your dog off the leash in any location that isn't your own property? I heard about the news that a dog, Bob, jumped up on a stranger and got put down because it was considered an attack?

Well, Bob’s case doesn’t really have anything to do with leash laws, but there’s definitely an issue.

This man is about to launch himself in his homemade rocket to prove the Earth is flat
Goodbye, cold, flat Earth.

FIRST OF ALL

I can’t believe WaPo gave this shit space on their website

Second of all

Aside from the fact that the reality of our planet is kindergarten general knowledge, this dude could have just made a balloon with a gopro on it

but no, instead, he’s going to explode and die in a homemade rocket to research something we disproved 10,000 years ago

I hope you liked this! I really enjoyed doing this story!! Thank you for sending this, I hope to see more!! (Also this has some of the physical harm, so just heads up I suppose! Not sure what or if I should tag it) - Admin Coran, Have A Great Day!

  • Your hand was placed gently on the metal snout of the Red Lion, feeling the energy your ancestors felt more than 10,000 years ago.
  • Both you and the Lion grieved for the people who were once revered in grand paintings, thought to be unstoppable warriors of peace and honor, who were now forgotten with shattered monuments the only trace left behind.
  • No parades of their glory. No home that snobbily claimed them. No family to proudly bare their name. No children to say ‘I want to grow up to be like them’, either because the names were never spoken of, or they grew to hear of their tragic fate
  • The pent-up anger transferred to you, the feeling of helplessness.
  • Unbearable, racking fear of never being free the Red Lion was tormented with daily until a young man with little control of his emotions stepped in.
  • Streaks of cold water rolled steadily down your cheeks. Your heart swelled with aching pain.
  • “I’m so sorry.” The words were exchanged between the beast tamer and the beast.
  • “What are you doing?” A loud, commanding voice boomed from the doorway.

Update

Hey guys! I’m still here. I haven’t posted any fitbit pictures because there hasn’t been anything spectacular to report honestly. It’s been kind of chilly and I’ve been exhausted. My steps haven’t been stellar but they’ve been okay. I’ve been averaging about 6,000-8,000 recently, which I feel terrible about because I was hitting 10,000-12,000 not too long ago. But I’ll get back there 👍🏻

The good news though, is that my water intake has been improving this week and I’m back to getting some salads and other such goodies in recently. Thank the lord. So things are looking up finally. I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving and all that entails also 😍

Hopefully I should be on the upswing of this whole baby exhaustion soon and can start posting some better stats here soon.

I hope everyone is crushing their goals this November. I believe in you! ✨
