From A Galaxy Far, Far Away…Is It An Alien Spaceship? PDF Print E-mail

Scientists say an interstellar object they named A/2017 U1, recently passed close enough to our planet to be seen on telescopes. It’s the first time ever such a large object from outside our solar system has been so clearly visible. What would our scientists see if they could get a closer look at the strange vehicle?
