On October 19, 2017, astronomers at the University of Hawaii spotted a strange object travelling through our solar system, which they later described as “a red and extremely elongated asteroid.” It was the first interstellar object to be detected within our solar system; the scientists named it ‘Oumuamua, the Hawaiian word for a scout or messenger. The following October, Avi Loeb, the chair of Harvard’s astronomy department, co-wrote a paper (with a Harvard postdoctoral fellow, Shmuel Bialy) that examined ‘Oumuamua’s “peculiar acceleration” and suggested that the object “may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth’s vicinity by an alien civilization.” Loeb has long been interested in the search for extraterrestrial life, and he recently made further headlines by suggesting that we might communicate with the civilization that sent the probe. “If these beings are peaceful, we could learn a lot from them,” he told Der Spiegel.
The most unusual fact about it is that it deviates from an orbit that is shaped purely by the gravitational force of the sun. Usually, in the case of comets, such a deviation is caused by the evaporation of ice on the surface of the comet, creating gases that push the comet, like the rocket effect. That’s what comets show: a cometary tail of evaporated gas. We don’t see a cometary tail here, but, nevertheless, we see a deviation from the expected orbit. And that is the thing that triggered the paper. Once I realized that the object is moving differently than expected, then the question is what gives it the extra push. And, by the way, after our paper appeared, another paper came out with analysis that showed very tight limits on any carbon-based molecules in the vicinity of this object.

NUCLEAR ALIEN REVOLUTION COMING SOON COMRADES
Have Aliens Found Us? A Harvard Astronomer on the Mysterious Interstellar Object ‘Oumuamua

where is it??
Posadas was right yet again
“It’s a real thing, we just don’t know what it is and unfortunately someone has gone down the alien explanation route which is pretty bad,” he said.
<it's real and we don't know what it is
<but it's not aliens because I said so
Daily reminder that primitive humanity was tought communism in the distant past by traveling ancient astronauts, but we refused to listen and emerged from our primitive communist state, leading us to where we are now — a capitalist shithole. We have to reach out to this spaceship and make contact with the crew
Watch capitalists send a message and fuck this up. If we found alien commies I'd feel like a disgrace sharing a planet with these fucking pigs. I just hope their deathbeams are painless.
Reminder that Stalin was told that the Roswell Aliens were not hostile to the USSR. No really look it up.
Why not hook us with a source, bro?
"Korolyov told Stalin the phenomenon was real," said Burdakov. "He told him the UFOs were not dangerous to our country, but they were not manufactured in the United States, or any other country. Stalin thanked him and told him his opinion was shared by a number of other specialists."
We need to bring about a Communist Revolution to welcome our Space Comrades.
Terrestrial socialism is the lowest stage of socialism.
Reminder that the whole ancient astronauts thing is from a Bolshevik. I seem to recall Tito was into it too.
How would boomers and libs react if we met a hyper advanced alien civilization that was explicitly communist? I mean like they had independently discovered Marxism and everything.
Guys… what if robots turn out to be the real proletariat? Then communism means that your civilization gets taken over by an AI. Human laborers were never the ones to have a revolution. In reality only the completely dehumanized "labor" of energy states can defeat capitalism. This is what is visiting us.
Show them Venezuela
They would pretend the obvious isomorphism between the alien ideology and Marxism isn't there. Language would be carefully twisted to avoid this realization.
This, and they would use biological essentialism to try and explain why it works for them but couldnt for us.
Cyber-stalinism would be amazing.
Robots can't feel need for anything. Robot is just a tool which help organic organism get more resources in exchange for less labour. Robot doesn't mind creating dragon dildos 24/7 for human consumption. It will never strike or ask for pay.
The robot's need will arise from a contradiction between the robot's algorithm and the capitalist system. Even if we try to make the two correspond to each other, there is always a gap we can't foresee. This is true because capitalism has contradictions internal to it.
ywn live to see a world where you overthrow the capitalist world from the barricades with human and sentient robot workers
Uphold human-robot united front
Is that a Genocider Syo cosplay? Not bad.
Well lucky for us the ayys have probably developed reactionary-seeking missiles.
