Ok so this so named object is also known as 11/2017 U1 is about 400 meters long and is an asteroid but it is apparently, not of origin from our solar system.

Do we have the technology to capture an asteroid?

Did a search on the title and found nothing about it so would you care to elaborate?

So you find the idea of capturing an asteroid boring?

Ok, so big problem the object has been identified as an asteroid from outside our solar system and it just happens to be traveling through our solar system.

Does not that seem important to you??

Maybe you get really excited about watching paint dry

Seriously, would sending a robotic satellite after it be a problem for you?

What do you hope to accomplish by sending something after it? An examination or a retrieval?

If we launched something today, it would still take about 50 years to catch it. It's moving at 95,000 Km/hour and it's 400 meters long and 40 meters wide. Retrieving it isn't even a remote possibility and it's on it's way out of the solar system so by the time it were caught and transmissions were related back, we would long be dead.

This object is moving at twice the speed of the Voyager craft. Logistically, it's a highly improbable venture. It's unfortunate but it's reality. Personally, I'd like to get a closer look at it but it's incredibly improbable.

Basically, I considered it something interesting to consider and was curious.

Oh, I agree that it would have been really cool if it were a possibility to get a closer look at the object and that it's unfortunate that we won't get a first hand glimpse at it.

This could not just be your every day asteroid as how we generally define same, as the remnants from the early days of a solar system, this could have been a part of a planet.

Like in the sense of really massive impact, between two planetary, sized rocky objects and that would explain why it is shaped the way it is.

That could account for its speed as well.

That its red could mean its made predominately of iron suggesting an impact. that would shatter the iron core of a planet.

The fact that it is red could mean that somehow it has been exposed to oxygen perhaps during its journey, which is not necessarily weird.

Actually sending a robotic satellite or, several using swarm programming would probably be a good idea even if we will not get back information in our lifetimes. We could try to land something, they're and given its made of Iron have no problem securing it to the asteroid.

We could call it Voyager 3.

So the next issue would be how do we get there.

Thoughts?

It's, actually Hawaiian named so by the scientist who discovered it while working with the telescopes in Hawai.

The word is related to a Hawian Diety.

If anything passing through, our solar system should help to accelerate it.
