Oumuamua, who has been wondering a lot since the day he was discovered, made his first accident in our Solar System.
Oumuamua, known as our first visit to the stars, was the focus of astronomers since they were discovered over the past few months. This unprecedented object will continue to roll in space for at least 1 billion years as long as unexpectedly large collisions do not occur.
It is not known exactly what this object is, which the world of science still continues to examine. Some people say it might be a comet, while others claim it looks like an asteroid. There are many people who say this object, which resembles a cigar shape, is a spaceship. Oumuamua, estimated to have been dragged into space for hundreds of millions of years, can continue to progress astonishingly.
A team of researchers from Queen’s University Belfast, led by Wes Fraser, is struggling to determine the exact nature of this object. The team, examining Oumuamua’s movements, said that such movements are often observed in smaller celestial bodies than Oumuamua. The fact that it resembles the motion of meteors in the Solar System makes this object even more mysterious. The team, who stated that this move could be due to many different causes, explained the most likely cause. In a statement to the BBC, Fraser said, “there has always been a collision in one place,” he said, exploring the details of the crash.
On the other hand, researchers have stated that the object has begun its journey to get out of the Solar System from January 2019. But this journey will take quite a long time. However, it is stated that it will not be able to roll forever and that many factors can stop this body. The team calculated how long it would take forever to estimate, even if the object did not know exactly what it was, and said it would be over 1 billion years.
Researchers who believe that Oumuamua has its own Solar System say that it is very difficult to understand whether or not the mu Oumuamua has come into being after the solar system is formed or after it has formed. In order to understand this, they need very high-resolution images but they do not have such a technology in their hands.
We are also very interested in this object which is a guest of our Solar System. Although there has been much criticism about the title in Turkey generally, it is being closely watched by astronomers.
