I simply find it amazing that this rock came from deep space somewhere. I mean where did it initially come from, how was it made, what gave it its forward momentum etc. Somewhere deep in space this rock was formed. The unknowns just make me so amazed at the unknowns of space

And in accordance with Planck's constant one must then divide by 7 with 7 being the atomic number of obfuscation.

2. The maximum speed at the closest distance form the sun of Oumuamua is 196,000 miles per hour. This is with in 5% of the speed of light divided by the magic number 3600. This just happens to be the number of seconds per hour.
huh? Could you elaborate on this..
Looks very similar to other dim comets when still far from the Sun.
If this were true, the tail would get uniformly wider the greater the distance form the nucleus.
No. It's pointing away from the Sun.
The tail is actually pointing towards us.
So the comet is not showing acceleration toward the Sun? It's not following a normal orbital curve? That would make it hard for people to find, wouldn't it? How would they know where to look for it?
We are looking into the remains of a long deceleration burn from a ion type drive.
If they are exhaust gases, shouldn't they be moving away from the comet rather quickly? If not, where does the thrust come from?
the exhaust gasses will linger for a long time before dissipating.
