    Its a very odd shape, you know? Reminds me of Star Trek IV: the one about whales which has a cylindrical extra-terrestrial probe.

    Someone floated the idea that it could be one of our own missiles, but I don't remember what their reasoning was. It was long and missile like, and they figured out by back tracking its trajectory where it may have come from.

    If our solar system were to receive any alien craft it would be likely be derelict and ancient with its builders long extinct given the time and distance.

    It looks like a giant space turd. Great. We're going out there to explore giant space poop.

    As a fraction of our economy, it's miniscule.
    But it's interesting technology, & perhaps
    will yield results some day.

    Everyone finding this thread interesting must read Arthur C. Clarke's Rendevous with Rama.
    https://www.amazon.com/Rendezvous-R...t first, only a few,Rama is no natural object.
    A huge, mysterious, cylindrical object appears in space, swooping in toward the sun. The citizens of the solar system send a ship to investigate before the enigmatic craft, called Rama, disappears. The astronauts given the task of exploring the hollow cylindrical ship are able to decipher some, but definitely not all, of the extraterrestrial vehicle's puzzles. From the ubiquitous trilateral symmetry of its structures to its cylindrical sea and machine-island, Rama's secrets are strange evidence of an advanced civilization. But who, and where, are the Ramans, and what do they want with humans?
    On further reflection, everyone who finds this thread interesting has probably already read Rendevous with Rama.

    All images of this object are apparently just representational given that the only thing we know about it is that it is much longer in one dimension than any others. No photographs yet unless I'm mistaken.
