The first discovered interstellar object (1I`Oumuamua) displayed a curious combination of properties that have led some to speculate that it may be an artificial object from an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization. While the majority of the scientific community believes that `Oumuamua originated through natural astrophysical processes, the formation mechanism of such objects remains unknown. This question is part of a fortified essay on interstellar objects.
By 2100, will 2 national space agencies conclude that an interstellar object in our solar system has a non-human artificial origin?
This question will resolve positively if at least two of the following agencies (or their successors) releases a statement that confirms an extraterrestrial, intelligent origin of an interstellar object in our Solar System.
- United States Department of Defense (Space Force, Air Force, etc.)
- European Space Agency (ESA)
- Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)
- Chinese National Space Administration
For the purposes of this question, an "interstellar object" will be defined as an object with the "I" designation by the Minor Planet Center , or as an object with an origin outside the solar system according to major government space agencies.
