It's all about priority. [/color][/b] [/quote] They cannot resolve it with a telescope a sit is far to far away. Pluto only appears as a dot of a few pixels even with the hubble telescope. They gave inferred the objects shape by the oscillation of its brightness. It is just two roundish lumps of rock that under gravity have come together and become one object. However the combined gravity was not large enough to form one new spherical shape as tends to happen with any object over a few hundred (3-4 hundred) kilometers in diameter. The article does not say the objects size. In part they cannot tell (as it cannot be resolved) without knowing how reflective it is and how bright you would expect it to be. But since it is not a sphere it is bound to be under 300 kilometers in diameter or so. [/quote] how can they get good images of galaxies light years away from hubble yet they cant get anything other than pixels of something much closer? [/quote] That is a good question. Probably has something to do with optics and what said telescope was made for. [/quote]
A very strange object indeed and with a weird rotation to boot.
Could it be a disabled alien ship?

Spinning hourglass object may be the first of many to be discovered in the Kuiper belt
The bizarre, hourglass-shaped Kuiper belt object 2001QG298 spins round like a propeller as it orbits the Sun, according to an astronomer from Queens University Belfast.
The discovery that the spinning object is tilted at nearly 90 degrees to the ecliptic plane is surprising, and suggests that this type of object could be very common in the Kuiper belt. The finding will be presented by Dr Pedro Lacerda at the Joint Meeting of the European Planetary Science Congress and the Division for Planetary Sciences in Nantes, France, on 3 October 2011.
