This is how Professor Avi Loeb’s depiction of the wandering “visitor” Oumuamua was realized by an artist for the Professor’s video about the moving object that entered our Solar System and is thought to be an alien device according to the Professor.
This is the usual presentation of what the object was thought to resemble. (No one captured even a distant photo of the moving-whatever-it-is, thinking little of it until it was out of telescopic range.)
Hoping that the galactic intruder might be an alien construct on a mission, either with technical probes or AI interpreters, even entities, which Avi Loeb suggests, we have to set such hopes aside as the object, if it were a probe looking for life in the Galaxy (or Universe), it didn’t slow down or approach our planet, where there is life (or so we think).
The object was passive, looking like a slab of meat in Professor Loeb’s proposed picture of it.
Nothing occurred during the thing’s insertion in our bailiwick that indicated any activity which would indicate the object was of intelligent design or use.
While Professor Loeb’s suggestion of an intergalactic visitor from, perhaps, an intelligent species is not outrageous, it ends up being incorrect, because the visitor provided nothing in the way of intelligence, just a non-calculated sojourn around the outskirts of our place in space.
Nonetheless Professor Loeb’s errant assessment took academic guts. He deserves some kind of kudos for going out on a (sadly) specious limb.
