Renowned astrophysicist and cosmologist Avi Loeb, a professor at Harvard University, is currently organizing expeditions in the Pacific Ocean, north of Australia. The professor expects to find at the bottom of the ocean, among other things, fragments of an extraterrestrial object.
Loeb believes that this object at least flew to our planet not only from space, but also from outside the solar system. At first, says the professor, everyone took it for a meteorite that crashed into the lower layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. It happened eight years ago, in 2014.
The professor goes to look for debris in the region of the small island of Manus, 160 km north of New Guinea.
The fact is that after an alien body fell on our planet, the fragment began to be carefully studied. In particular, the trajectory is always that of a rigid body. It turned out that the body is several times denser than iron and other rocks that are part of ordinary meteorites that constantly surround us.
Therefore, during the expedition, which will begin in March-April next year, Loeb and his colleagues plan to study in detail a section of the ocean floor with an area of 15 square kilometers using ‘a magnet. So far, 1.5 million US dollars have been found, but this is obviously not enough.
Last summer, the professor founded the Galileo project, one of the tasks of which is the systematic search for evidence of the presence of extraterrestrial techno-artifacts on Earth. Loeb is one of those optimists who believe that (intelligent) extraterrestrials have at least once existed in our universe.
However, the professor does not believe that we will ever be able to establish contact with extraterrestrials. The most likely is that one day we will meet a maximum of a drone that was sent into space in the distant past by already extinct civilizations.
The reason for the scientist’s faith is the discovery of Oumuamua, the same space cigar that came from interstellar space and swept across the solar system in the fall of 2017. The professor is sure that it is not a comet or an asteroid, but a full-fledged alien spacecraft.
