Oumuamua was ‘ripped from a planet’

# Oumuamua was ‘ripped from a planet’

The strange cigar-shaped Oumuamua space rock discovered in 2017 was ripped from a planet and sent hurtling into space after it came too close to its star.


When it appeared it became the first visitor from another star system to be spotted from Earth, and astronomers have speculated on its origins ever since. Experts from National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences believe it could have been ripped from a planet getting close to its star.
