Xinhua News Agency, Los Angeles, December 6 (reporter Tan Jingjing) The cigar-shaped object discovered last year is considered to be the "first interstelate visitor" of the solar system, and its true identity has been very concerned with global astronomers . According to a recent study by the American Institute for Search for Alien Civilizations (SETI), this celestial body was not detected as "artificial" radio signals, but this can not be discarded as an "unattainable origin".
In October last year, researchers at the University of Hawaii in the United States have observed this mysterious goal for the first time. It is a dark red and has a length of 10 times the width, similar to a cigar shape. Astronomers called it "Oumuamua", which means a "remote messenger" in Hawaii) and made various conjectures about their identity.
It has been speculated that this celestial body can be a comet or asteroid, but observations show that the celebrity body has no characteristics as a "tail" and flies faster than an asteroid. Due to the strange form of "Omo Mo", some think that it is necessary to detect whether it emits radical signals that can reveal signs of foreign intelligence.
Researchers at the Alumni Civilization Institute used the Allen Telescope table from November 23 to December 5 last year to observe the "Omo Mo" when it was about 270 million kilometers from Earth. Researchers have tried to detect "artificial" radio transmitter signals to verify whether "Omo Momo" is only a "stone" expelled from the interaction between galaxies, or another way.
The team used a broad operator of the Allen Telescope set to look for a radio signal at frequencies between 1 and 10 GHz with a resolution of 100 kHz, but did not detect "artificial" characters. The paper will be published in the February edition of the British Journal of Star Navigation.
"We have tried to find radio broadcasting signals to check if Omo Mo used the" artistic "technology, but we have not found the related signals. Our observations have not discarded the unnatural origins of & 39; Omo Mo, who is studying its Construction provides an important data, "said Grieg Happ, the main author of the paper.
Founded in 1984, the Search for Alien Civilization Institute is located in Mountain View, North California, United States, and is an exploratory organization with a mission to seek foreign intelligence.
