Astronomers find ‘alien’ asteroids living in our solar system

Ashley Strickland of CNN –

Scientists In the last few years have studied the first observed interstellar visitors to our solar system. They include a comet called 2I/Borisov, spotted in 2019 and still passing through, and an asteroid called ‘Oumuamua that zipped through quickly in 2017.

Now, astronomers have identified a more permanent outsider presence in our solar system. It’s a group of interstellar asteroids that checked in a long time ago and never left. And they’ve been hiding in plain sight for billions of years, according to a new study published this week in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
These asteroids were likely around when our solar system was forming 4.5 billion years ago.
