“Oumuamua showed deviations from a Keplerian orbit at a high statistical significance. We discuss the possible origins of Oumuamua, including the possibility that it might be a lightsail of artificial origin … for interstellar travel.”

For every second they flew, about 2,000 feet above the jungle canopy, the lidar sent about half a million laser pulses (to the ground).” – Nicholas St. Fleur, TNYT, October 2, 2018
“This particular neutron star belongs to a group of seven nearby X-ray pulsars nicknamed ‘the Magnificent Seven’ that are hotter than they ought to be considering their ages and available energy reservoir provided by the loss of rotation energy.”
