Meanwhile In Space

An interview by John Michael Godier with the same Dr. Avi Loeb who we noted previously had suggested that the bizarre acceleration of the interstellar object might be due to its being artificial. While this was the last of the list of possibilities listed in the short paper, it was (not unexpectedly) the only hypothesis of his that really made it into the headlines.

It appears now that they've effectively lost Omuamua, which turns out to be even weirder than originally thought. 

  "It's probably much smaller than initially thought." 
"And it's SHINY."
