A Harvard professor says an alien visited in 2017 — and more are coming

quote [ “The excess push away from the sun — that was the thing that broke the camel’s back,” he said.

Using physics, scientists can calculate the exact path an object should take and what speed it should travel due to the gravitational force exerted by the sun. The sun’s pull will speed up an object massively as it gets closer, then kick it out the other side, only for the object to slow considerably as it gets farther away.

But ‘Oumuamua didn’t follow this calculated trajectory. The object, in fact, accelerated “slightly, but to a highly statistically significant extent,” Loeb writes, as it moved away from the sun. ]

Interesting. Theres also a claim by William Pickard that extraterrastrials encrypted the NSA's computers in 2000

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. And aliens.

I'm not saying it's aliens, I'm saying it's a giant space joint.

I saw an interesting video arguing that although Oumuamua, the Proxima Centauri signal, Tabby's Star, etc. could all have natural explanations, they could also have artificial explanations. And the number of things with possible artificial explanations could be argued to mean some of them probably are artificial.

What about Bob are baby steps really necessary.
