That is somehow very cool to me. :D I think it's the fact that it's outbound, and after it disappears, humans will never see it again; it will be lost to the great interstellar void. It just came by for a brief visit. It reminds me of Rendezvous With Rama.

Aye, I said as much elsewhere. Rendezvous with Rama is a top-notch tale!

YESS!!! Rendezvous with Rama is amazing! I tried to get other members of my family to read it and I was sadly disappointed when they didn't like it.

I was so confused by this. Then I read the thread title.

It's an IRC thing. "Pew pew" is like an LT IRC meme, or something... along with *snart*, tactical assault, lilacs, cookies, :V, cheese, goats, and a number of other things. :D

Oh, so it makes even more sense if I were spent more time on the IRC. I should do that...

The first known asteroid to visit our Solar System from interstellar space has been given a name. The interstellar interloper will now be referred to as 'Oumuamua, which means "a messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian.

Now, new data reveal the interstellar interloper to be a rocky, cigar-shaped object with a somewhat reddish hue. The asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua by its discoverers, is up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated—perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide.
