Is 'Oumuamua a Light Sail? Featuring Dr. Avi Loeb

The first interstellar object, named 'Oumuamua, was discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii. The object is of unknown origin and could be a comet or asteroid. However according to a recent paper by Dr. Avi Loeb of Harvard University and Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, it may possibly be an artificial alien light sail. We spoke to Dr. Loeb about that paper.
