Mystery inside ‘Oumuamua as expert reveals why he believes space object is from ancient alien civilization

An unexplained object that has ripped through the solar system at 196,000 miles per hour is from an ancient alien civilization, a prominent Harvard professor has claimed.

Avi Loeb told The Sun.

Much of the scientific community has written it as a comet, but Loeb is unconvinced for three main reasons.

He said the comet has a “tail”, which Oumuamua does not.

Second, it falls every eight hours, and the amount of sunlight reflected back on it varies by a factor of 10,” meaning it has a very distinctive shape, most likely flat like a pancake. .”

Three, it is pushed away from the sun by an unknown force because there is no rocket effect from the evaporating gas because there is no evaporation.

“We’ve never seen anything like it before,” Loeb said. “And my point is, if we don’t see anything like it before we leave everything on the table, that includes the possibility that it is of artificial origin.”

The only object that displays similar properties to come close to Earth is “2020 SO,” says Loeb.

It was identified as an artificial part of the US Surveyor 2 Centaur rocket that landed on the moon in September 1966.

“2020 SO” is moving slower than “Oumuamua,” said Loeb, but “both objects exhibit excessive repulsion from the sun, reflect sunlight, and have no comet tails.”

“It is clear that this object (‘2020 SO’) is man-made and it is just another object to display the same properties as ‘Oumuamua,” he said. “The only question I have is who made ‘Oumuamua?'”

“GALILEO WILL CANCEL TODAY”

Loeb said technological possibilities exist to study the phenomenon explained in 2017, but the obstacle is convincing the scientific community.

“A lot of my colleagues are screaming, this is ridiculous. We shouldn’t even discuss it, we shouldn’t be thinking about it,” Loeb said.

“It’s like when Galileo said the earth revolves around the sun. If he made such a comment today, he would be canceled on social media.”

Loeb compared “Oumuamua” to a caveman who found a cell phone.

“The cave dweller would think it was just a rock at first, and he would argue that it’s just a rock I’ve never seen before. That’s what my colleagues did.

“But it was only when the caveman was curious that he pressed the button and realized that he could record his own voice. And that meant it wasn’t just a rock.”

WHERE IS “OUMUAMUA” NOW?

Nearly five years later, Loeb said the object is about 30 times farther from the sun than it was in 2017 and “a million times dimmer than when it was near us.”

But instead of chasing “Oumuamua,” Loeb says they’re about to find another one, photograph it, and study it.

“When I go into the kitchen and find an ant, I usually panic because there are definitely more ants out there,” he said.

“So my prediction is, if we continue to monitor the sky, we will find another sky in the coming years.”

That’s why he started Project Galileo about six months ago with the goal of raising funds to further fund research.

It consists of about 100 scientists from all over the world who doubt the theory and subscribe to it and are delving into the search for answers.

Loeb said he is in talks with several people with a lot of money to support his projects.

“One of the main goals of Project Galileo is to find more ‘Oumuamua-like objects in the future and then send in a camera to take close-up pictures.

“If it looks like such a large nitrogen iceberg but we’ve never seen anything like it, then we’ll learn something new that nature can create,” he said. nitrogen ice.

“But if it’s like ‘2020 SO’, we’d love to see close-up images of it. Maybe there’s screws on it, or you can even read the label saying it was made on planet X and at star.”

“REQUIRED FREQUENTLY”

When the controversial object blasted through the solar system in 2017, it was the closest object of any interstellar object to earth.

That’s why Loeb says it’s urgent to find answers.

Project Galileo is taking a different approach to past searches for alien life, Loeb said.

In previous decades, scientists had been looking for radio signals, but “that’s like trying to talk on the phone,” says Loeb.

“You need an active partner while you’re listening. But there may be no one transmitting the radio signal when we’re looking.

“And before, when people thought about how to respond when a radio signal was detected, you didn’t have to respond immediately because the distance to the nearest star was four light-years.”

A roundabout conversation would take a decade or more to the nearest star, says Loeb, so there’s no urgency in deciding how to react. “

“It’s very different in case you have an object close to us,” he said. “It’s like having someone in your house. You have to decide what to do immediately because there can be consequences.

“And currently there is no protocol and no idea how to interact with an object from another civilization.”

“Who REPRESENTS THE EARTH?”

Loeb said: If humanity contacts, who will represent the earth.

“There were no thoughts on this,” Loeb said. “I think these are very serious issues to think about.”

Unless it is a case of national security, Loeb argues that it should be a worldwide collection of scientists operating separately from governments.

“It is not a matter of a particular government to decide what information to keep or what data to keep secret,” says Loeb. “It should be part of the scientific research agenda.”
