Remember last summer Jim Green and others put forward the notion of placing an artificial magnetic bubble at the Sun-Mars lagrange point to envelope Mars in a the magnetic sheath thus protecting astronauts and potential atmo from solar particles/wind. Well someone took a deep dive on the math and design. It is doable but needs a fission reactor and only 3 BFR launches to put it all in place.

TLDR:
with nothing more than ~300 tons of material and some human ingenuity, Mars could once again boast a firm line of defense against solar winds. Such a field would allow for an atmosphere to be grown around the planet without the threat of being stripped away, and an ozone layer to defend against high energy UV light. Electronic devices and biological entities on Mars could finally be safe from the endless barrage of protons and electrons careening from the sun.

I just read this and highly recommend it -- to me it feels like it was created by a kindred spirit.

could be a comet or maybe under protomolecule control and we weren't worthy of a Ring
Oumuamua -- the first interstellar object discovered within our Solar System -- has been the subject of intense scrutiny since its discovery in October 2017 [1]. Now, by combining data from the ESO's Very Large Telescope and other observatories, an international team of astronomers has found that the object is moving faster than predicted. The measured gain in speed is tiny and `Oumuamua is still slowing down because of the pull of the Sun -- just not as fast as predicted by celestial mechanics.
