If it were of artificial design, I wonder what advantage tumbling through the ether has ? To my simple mind this would make the risk of collision with small particles/debris greater, than in a 'streamlined' position. I suppose tumbling might reduce exposure to radiation emitted from stars etc, sharing the dosage over the whole body.
