Here’s hoping that they are some interstellar environmentalists out there who have already started to clean our cosmic neighborhood.
The first interstellar object to make its way to Earth may have had properties that exceeded even those of iron meteorites.
On April 6, 2022, the U.S. Space Command tweeted a formal letter confirming a meteor as originating from outside the solar system.
This week we'll be looking at how a meteor that might have gone unnoticed was revealed to have interstellar origins, with help from the Pentagon.
With questions like those surrounding dark matter, we should resist the temptation of explaining away anomalies based on past knowledge.
The James Webb Space Telescope could do more than just give us glimpses of distant alien worlds; it may even help us spot a few interstellar visitors.
