Has an alien probe entered our solar system? Cigar-shaped interstellar ‘comet’ Oumuamua is being investigated for signs of extraterrestrial technology – dailymail

Astronomers are set to scan an ‘alien’ comet for signs of extraterrestrial technology.

The cigar-shaped asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua by its discoverers, sailed past Earth last month and is the first interstellar object seen in the solar system.

A team of alien-hunting scientists, led by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, will scan the comet this week before it sails beyond the reach of Earth’s telescopes.

They say they are looking for radio signals, claiming the mysterious visitor could be an alien spaceship.
