The Prophet?
« on: 00:23:45, 12 July, 2018 »
BBC Horizon the other night looked at the possibility of using wormholes for time travel.

And Oumuamua recently zipped through the Solar System - quite long in relation to its width and believed to be an interstellar asteroid or maybe an almost dry comet, with non-gravitational acceleration believed to be due to outgassing.  But no close up images possible, so we don't know for sure what it is.

How many of you have read Arthur C. Clarke's books 'The Light of Other Days' and 'Rendezvous with Rama'? 

I rest my case  ;)  (Well, he certainly got it right about geostationary satellites!)
