"A young star speeding away from the Milky Way is in fact an alien visitor, astronomers have confirmed. The wayward object is one of several rogues that are giving astronomers a glimpse into the volatile nature of our galaxy and others."

Hm, "an alien visitor", well, I wouldn't go that far, to be a "alien visitor" as such it would have to be alive and since it's just a star, it's not alive.

But I do understand the principle, I saw an episode "The Universe - 2.02 - Cosmic Holes" that explained this principle very well !
