I've had success with flash pan ignition. Think Space-X will let me help them sort it out?

You're looking at the business end of Space-X's Falcon 9 Heavy. 27 Merlins.

And that thing that swung through the solar system....it was an asteroid thing.

It was a Zentradi battle ship.

The recent arrival and solar system passage of the interstellar asteroid (commonly called an "interstellar interloper"), named 'Oumuamua (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CA%BBOumuamua ), was eerily similar to the beginning of Arthur C. Clarke's novel "Rendezvous with Rama" (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendezvous_with_Rama ), as some scientists mentioned. Less commonly, the advent of 'Oumuamua was compared with the opening act of "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_T...The_Voyage_Home ). Also:

It has already been suggested that since such interstellar interlopers (asteroids, comets, and perhaps even--although not likely--derelict starships or starprobes) would be more likely to approach our solar system from the direction of the solar apex (the "Apex of the Sun's Way," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_apex ) as 'Oumuamua did (because our solar system is moving in that direction), searches for other incoming interstellar objects should be concentrated in that direction. This doesn't mean that the rest of the celestial sphere should be neglected, but simply that the odds are higher in the direction of the solar apex, as the Sun "overtakes" objects ahead of it (just as more meteors are seen after midnight, because we are then facing in the Earth's direction of motion around the Sun).
