Staff at Queen’s University Belfast (1845 - )

Oumuamua is the first known interstellar object detected passing through the Solar System.  Formally designated 1l/2017 U1, it caused a great deal of interest because of its curiously elongated shape. It was studied closely by astrophysicists around the world, including Professor Alan Fitzsimmons and others based at Queens University, Belfast.  One view of its origin suggests that it might have come from the Oort cloud at the outer edge of the solar system.  However, its very high velocity and the results of studies of its surface carried out at QUB suggest it took off from an unknown star system in the long distant past and has been wandering through the Milky Way, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system.

 

When last seen it was headed back into interstellar space in the direction of the constellation Pegasus (the Winged Horse).

Katsuko Saruhashi (1920 –2007)

In March 1954 a Japanese fishing boat, the Daigo Fukuryū Mar (M.S. Five Red Dragons), encountered the fallout from the U.S. Castle Bravo nuclear test at Bikini Atoll, near the Marshall Islands.  When the test was held, the Daigo Fukuryū Maru was catching fish outside the danger zone that the United States government had declared in advance.  However, the test was more than twice as powerful as it was predicted to be, and changes in weather patterns blew nuclear fallout, in the form of a fine ash, outside the danger zone.  The fishermen were caught in the fallout and suffered severe radiation sickness.

Japanese nuclear physicist Katsuko Saruhashi took up the case of the fishermen and proved through analysis of the distribution of radioactivity in ocean samples over time that the effects of the nuclear tests were much more widespread and long lasting
