Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. It turns out that last Month, astronomers operating the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii spotted a foreign object moving through our solar system. It is the first time that we have observed an interstellar object in our own solar system, and the object has an intriguing cigar shape. The object has been named "Ounuamua", which means "messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian, and it appears to be an asteroid that has travelled millions of miles through space. Due to its unique shape, it's certainly worth taking a look!

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
