4341 Huge object passing Earth 'could be alien spacecraft'
>A huge object passing by Earth could be an alien spacecraft, scientists have said.

>The bizarre cigar-shaped entity was previously thought to be an interstellar asteroid which had come from another part of the galaxy.

>But evidence has been mounting which has led experts to suggest it could actually be a sign of intelligent life.

>The object is hundreds of metres in length but only one tenth as wide which is highly unusual for a typical space rock, scientists have said.

Do you think there are any fit alien birds onboard? Do you think we could contact them and organise an exchange program?

Duh, that goes without saying. As if we can just take pictures of things in space. The difference this time is the different organisations involved haven't coordinated as well as the likes of NASA and have presented divergent images to the public.

That depends a lot on where they are and how big they are.

What? Are you a flat Earther or something?

How do we know it's not just an astronaut turd viewed up close? I can't imagine they get through many boxes of bran flakes on the international space station.

So what are the leading theories on how a rock like this actually gets formed?

It's that 2 objects have crashed into each other end to end. The fact that it is interstellar. Makes that less likely since it isn't like it is likely to come across other objects, so speculation is really all we have. Rogue asteroids are really rare and we have very little to go on as to how it formed and the path it is taking. Objects don't typically move like that. Everything typically orbits something bigger and in the same direction, if not then they collide with something bigger moving the way everything else is moving. The frequency and direction of any more objects we see like this could tell us an enormous amount about the history of our galaxy.

We spend the last century on the look out for wee Green Men, and the sods just blaze right on by us with better places to be. We should have foreseen this, I'm sure everyone's familiar with the idea that any aliens humanity met would be unimaginably more advanced than ourselves, and that they'd treat us like Empires of old treated the natives in their colonies, and dominate and annihilate us. But that's an outlier, because contempt usually just leads to people getting ignored and sidelined for not being fit, interesting or funny enough.

We're the boring, fat, wankers of the universe, and in typical podgy idiot fashion, we're the last ones to know.

I think it's basically an ego thing that we fear being taken over by aliens. A species advanced enough to reach us in a practical amount of time will be so far beyond us as a society they will have known about us for generations anyway and just won't be that bothered.

Kind-of annoys me that we're not in a position to catch it considering we might never, ever see one again. Imagine if it goes off and destroys someone's greenhouse and they trace it back to us.

At the very least we could stick some sort of monument on there considering it will reliably leave the solar system. Just in case.

I suppose there is a lot in life that can be explained by the fact that we're live in the galactic equivalent of Little Chef.

Exactly this - if they can fly for light years in tiny craft and deal with our atmosphere, it is all over all ready. They'll have worked out that we have the IQ of cows.
