The story of ‘Oumuamua’

Stories about UFO encounters have been around since the beginning of recorded history, but in recent years the claims have become far more concerning.

In October 2017, astrobiologist Karen J. Meech got the call every astronomer waits for:

NASA had spotted the very first visitor from another star system. The interstellar comet — a half-mile-long object eventually named `Oumuamua, from the Hawaiian for “scout” or “messenger” — raised intriguing questions: Was it a chunk of rocky debris from a new star system, shredded material from a supernova explosion, evidence of alien technology or something else altogether?

In this riveting talk, Meech tells the story of how her team raced against the clock to find answers about this unexpected gift from afar.
