Christmas, Two Objects, Both discussed on Space Nuts
Or it's it's those sorts of things angles lesson bonkers comments long period comets come from all angles the cloud which is to the wrapped around the solar system but the the key thing is the speed because he you know these two objects were both traveling at speeds that could not have bound to the solar system in other words. There was no way that we're never gonna stop and go around the sun. I think who was roundabout twenty six kilometers per second. It's it's highs philosophy which is very much above the escape velocity of the solar system so it comes and goes. I think it's more a case of its. it's gone. oh look this earth accelerate. And maybe that's right. Nothing flurry still got this puzzle. It did seem to have some non gravitational forces acting on it which thought to be perhaps ejected material coming from it. The boosted it direction. Still the theory that it might be alien that avi avi lobes idea that an is. He's just published a book about that. Well this way to be a best seller probably the e-eh. I think the what they've suggested just going into detail of this. But how do you how do you intercept them. One way to have things. I think we've talked about this before. How things orbiting in space that are spacecraft that have got a mega lumbini rocket boosters attached to them and they're just waiting in orbit for something to go past. I think suggestions where you might have three of these spread around pepsi us orbit and then once the once cited something you hit the button send off in the right direction to chase after whatever it is And seeking photograph which would be a good start fantastic different image. I mean we you know it. A pin sell issue whether you're is an alien spacecraft if we could go to close up photograph well it's being chased by tesla. So you never know though shots there was i mean i think ilan must did look closely at whether they could mount emission from nice x. Hardware to to chase after it and it was not possible would never catch it now and i think that's been part of the problem so far. These things have passed us before we realized that were they. I mean we were. We were asleep for new because it was christmas and we just went what we really need to probably find them before they get here just in case they getting a bit too close become the. That's actually borisov was detected before before that it before it passed the closest. But but even that you know the speed was was too high but it did mean a strongest could get a good look at it which is why we know it had these various chemicals in its coma. Okay well keep your eyes peeled coming into. It can fire i seventy. This is the space nuts..
