1I/'Oumuamua is the first known interstellar small body, probably being only about 100 m in size. Against expectations based on comets, 'Oumuamua does not show any activity and has a very elongated figure, and it also exhibits undamped rotational tumbling. In contrast, 'Oumuamua's trajectory indicates that it was moving with the local stars, as expected from a low-velocity ejection from a relatively nearby system. Here, I assume that 'Oumuamua is typical of 100 m interstellar objects and…

Origin of 1I/’Oumuamua. I. An Ejected Protoplanetary Disk Object?
1I/'Oumuamua is the first interstellar interloper to have been detected. Because planetesimal formation and ejection of predominantly icy objects are common by-products of the star and planet
Implications of the interstellar object 1I/'Oumuamua for planetary dynamics and planetesimal formation
'Oumuamua, the first bona-fide interstellar planetesimal, was discovered passing through our Solar System on a hyperbolic orbit. This object was likely dynamically ejected from an extrasolar
Significant interstellar object production by close stellar flybys
Context. Within just two years, two interstellar objects (ISOs) – 1I/‘Oumuamua and 2I/Borisov – have been discovered, the first of their kind. Large quantities of planetesimals form as a by-product
1I/‘Oumuamua as an N 2 Ice Fragment of an exo‐Pluto Surface: I. Size and Compositional Constraints
The origin of the interstellar object 1I/'Oumuamua has defied explanation. We perform calculations of the non-gravitational acceleration that would be experienced by bodies composed of a range of
Spin Evolution and Cometary Interpretation of the Interstellar Minor Object 1I/2017 ’Oumuamua
Observations of the first interstellar minor object 1I/2017 'Oumuamua did not reveal direct signs of outgassing that would have been natural if it had volatile-rich composition. However, a recent
Ejection of rocky and icy material from binary star systems: implications for the origin and composition of 1I/‘Oumuamua
In single star systems like our own Solar system, comets dominate the mass budget of bodies that are ejected into interstellar space, since they form further away and are less tightly bound. However
The Feasibility and Benefits of In Situ Exploration of ‘Oumuamua-like Objects
A rapid accumulation of observations and interpretation have followed in the wake of 1I `Oumuamua's passage through the inner Solar System. We briefly outline the consequences that this first
1I/‘Oumuamua as an N 2 Ice Fragment of an Exo‐Pluto Surface II: Generation of N 2 Ice Fragments and the Origin of ‘Oumuamua
The origin of the interstellar object 1I/'Oumuamua, has defied explanation. In a companion paper (Jackson & Desch, 2021), we show that a body of N2 ice with axes 45 m x 44 m x 7.5 m at the time of
Constraints on the Occurrence of ‘Oumuamua-Like Objects
At present, there exists no consensus in the astronomical community regarding either the bulk composition or the formation mechanism for the interstellar object 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua). With the goal
Tidal fragmentation as the origin of 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua)
The first discovered interstellar object (ISO), ‘Oumuamua (1I/2017 U1) shows a dry and rocky surface, an unusually elongated shape, with short-to-long axis ratio c ∕ a  ≲ 1∕6, a low velocity relative

TLDR
Observations and analysis of the object 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua) that demonstrate its extrasolar trajectory, and that enable comparisons to be made between material from another planetary system and from the authors' own, reveal it to be asteroidal with no hint of cometary activity despite an approach within 0.25 astronomical units of the Sun.

TLDR
It is reported that boulders can undergo efficient gravitational collapse in locally overdense regions in the midplane of the disk, and it is found that gravitationally bound clusters form with masses comparable to dwarf planets and containing a distribution of boulder sizes.
