yes I know.
Comets are ice and rock......and asteroids have no ice. The more ice in a comet the larger the "tail" will be.....if there is no "tail" there is no ice. Hence it would not be a comet.
The asteroid/comet dichotomy is an artificial one. Asteroids and comets both have dust and ices.
The asteroids tend to be rockier and have much less ice if they formed in the asteroid belt. But to be ice and dust free asteroids would have had to pass near the sun numerous times and get "sandblasted" by the solar wind.
The typical asteroid is a potato shaped pile of gravel.
Just did a search on "Collector Ships from Mass Effect 2" on duckduckgo and it was the first image under "images".
Another view of a "Collector Cruiser":
Probably old news. Turned up on my board this morning.
Huge object passing Earth 'could be alien spacecraft from another part of galaxy', say scientists
Yes I think this was posted already......but now we know the SETI search didn't find anything.
Seti is mentioned in this article.
yes I know.....but the results are in.
SETI is not all the results, more like a fraction of the investigation and research...
yes I know
SETI finding nothing is no surprise, its logical to assume an advanced species would not be using radio communications in space, SETI has no ability to detect anything else...Limited research and limited results...
A question. Can SETI penetrate / scan a solid asteroid to see if it is hollow ?
Not at all, they can only listen to radio transmissions...
Well there you go, an incomplete scientific assessment. A guess at best.
I wasn't even giving any consideration to what SETI said or didn't say, they are not a source of information I find suitable...I think the SETI project is a complete waste of money...
I think they should devise something, a pursuit probe of our own and maybe keep it near the ISS to chase these things when they fly by us .
That's all SETI ever did.....but then they are searching for radio transmissions in deep space. They never really searched a specific nearby object before.
Exactly so no legitimate results are in yet...
SETI does not have the facilities nor capabilities to inspect passing near Earth objects. Its a fail fail. They should get out of the game unless the next passing asteroid has antennas sticking out of it.
Actually we know there are no radio transmissions are coming from the object.....this is a partial result. Remember the article said other groups were running other tests.
