According to a report from CNN, a group of Harvard astronomers believe they have discovered what could be an alien spacecraft which they say is shaped like ‘a cigar’…right.
Now, we know that a cigar-shaped ship is the cliché, but if you look at the artist's rendering of the object, cannabis connoisseurs will know better.
Since the object was discovered in 2017, scientists have been at a loss to categorize it or explain its unusual properties like its dark red color, its bizarre shape and the incredible speed at which it is moving. It was eventually determined it was in a whole new class of interstellar objects.
Since then, a group of Harvard researchers have put together a new paper on the object, nicknamed "Oumuamua," that raises the possibility that the object might have an "artificial origin."
"Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization," the researchers wrote.
So, the long and short of it is that aliens might be traveling across the galaxy in a giant joint. The poster artists of the sixties were right all along!
