Mysterious interstellar ‘Oumuamua can be made from something almost unheard of in science



Mysterious interstellar ‘Oumuamua can be made from something almost unheard of in science

The mystery surrounding interstellar objects ‘Oumumua seems to be getting weirder from day to day.

A new study, which has not been reviewed by colleagues, shows that interstellar objects can be made from hydrogen ice. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, but is rarely observed in solid form.

“We developed a theory that explains all the strange nature of Oumuamua,” said study co-author Gregory Laughlin, a professor of astronomy at Yale’s School of Arts and Sciences, in a statement. “We show that it may consist of hydrogen ice. This is a new type of object, but it seems like more of them are appearing, moving forward.”

Oumuamua is in the form of a cigar, which was first discovered in October 2017, unlike anything researchers have seen before, due to its shape, and dry surface.

The research notes that hydrogen ice, which requires extremely cold temperatures, is something that is in the nucleus of molecular clouds. Molecular clouds form the basis of stars and researchers believe umu Oumuamua can contain hydrogen ice after passing through one of these molecular clouds in space, which can explain its speed.

“When ‘Oumuamua passes close to the Sun and receives its warmth, melted hydrogen will quickly boil from the surface of the ice,” the study’s lead author, Darryl Seligman explains, “provides the observed acceleration and also winnows’ Oumuamua to strange, elongated shapes – like a bar. soap becomes a thin slice after much use in the bathroom. “

It is possible that this “hydrogen iceberg” or “hydrogen comet” could be more prevalent in the solar system, which could give researchers new information about how stars and planets form.

“Their presence will be an accurate investigation of conditions in the dark recesses of star-forming clouds and provide critical new clues to understanding the initial phase of the still mysterious process that results in the birth of stars and accompanying planets,” Laughlin noted.

Oumuamua’s cigar-shaped 900 feet long has led some researchers to believe that it could be an alien investigation.

A study was published in November 2018 the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggested that it could be “artificial light” sent from other civilizations.

The researcher who discovered ‘Oumuamua, Canadian physicist and astronomer Robert Weryk, said the idea that of other civilizations is simply “wild speculation.”

No longer seen by telescopes in January 2018, many have speculated about ‘Ouamumua. In addition to with the light sailing theory, some have theorized that that a comet or an asteroid.

The mystery about its exact nature deepened at the end of 2018, when NASA said it had been looking in the direction of ‘Ouamumua for two months but at first didn’t see it.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
