'Oumuamua has been tumbling about the universe for a billion years

Oumuamua tumbling through the universe for 1m years The first intergalactic object observed by scientists, a massive orb named 'Oumuamua, has been tumbling about the universe for at least a billion years, new research suggests.

'Oumuamua first appeared last fall. Scientists originally thought it was a comet, but when the orb swung around the sun without melting, researchers determined it was most likely an asteroid.

One study showed, however, that the unusual object likely boasts an icy interior, further confusing the orb's identity.

Whatever 'Oumuamua is, it's now far away from the sun and getting farther by the minute. But during its brief trip through our solar system and past the sun, researchers were able to train several telescopes on the object. Astronomers are still analyzing the collected data.
