The Alien Hunter of Harvard: How Avi Loeb Found Possible ET Tech in the Pacific

Avi Loeb and his team made a remarkable discovery, in July 2023, . They retrieved 10 tiny metallic spheres from the Pacific Ocean, which they believe could be fragments of alien technology from a meteor that crashed in 2014.

What if there are other intelligent civilizations existed out there, and Creatures have visited our solar system? How would we know if they left behind any traces of their technology?These are some of the questions that create in our minds and Harvard professor Avi Loeb  is trying to give answers.

Avi Loeb  is a renowned astrophysicist and the leader of the Galileo Project, and this project aims to search for physical evidence of extraterrestrial life and technology.

The mysterious meteor

The meteor, known as IM1, entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of 60 kilometers per second, faster than 95% of all stars in the vicinity of the sun. It break out the waters off the coast of Papua New Guinea, releasing an energy equivalent to 13 kilotons of trinitrotoluene.

The US Space Command confirmed that the meteor came from another solar system, based on its trajectory and velocity. It was also made of materials that were tougher than any known space rock, including iron meteorites.

Loeb speculated that the meteor could be a spacecraft from another civilization, or some technological gadget that they launched into interstellar space. Harvard professor Avi Loeb compared it to the NASA Voyager spacecrafts, which will exit our solar system in 10,000 years and may collide with another planet far away in the future.

The search for alien artifacts

To test his hypothesis, Loeb and his team set about on a mission to find any leftover of the meteor that may have survived the explosion and landed on the ocean floor. They used a boat called the Silver Star, equipped with a sled full of magnets that they dragged along the seabed.

They narrowed down their search area to a 10-kilometer radius, based on the calculations of the meteor’s path and the time delay between its light and sound. They also collaborated with the local government and fishermen to get access to the waters.

After several days of searching, they found 10 spherules, or metallic marbles, that were mainly made of iron, silicon, magnesium and titanium. Some of them resembled miniature Earths.

Loeb said that these spherules looked very distinct from the background when viewed under a microscope.

Harvard professor Avi Loeb  said that they could be either natural or artificial in origin, and that further analysis was needed to determine their nature.

The implications of alien technology

If the spherules turn out to be artificial, it would be a unconventional discovery that would change our vision of our place in the cosmos. It would mean that we are not alone on this universe, and that there are other civilizations existed out there that have achieved interstellar travel and communication ability.

It would challenge our scientific paradigms, our philosophical beliefs, and our ethical values.

On the other hand, if the driblet turns out to be natural, it would still be a precious finding that would spike our knowledge of the materials and processes that exist outside our solar system.

 It would also inspire us to continue our search for alien life and technology, using more advanced methods and instruments.

Loeb said that he was motivated by curiosity and humility to pursue this research. He said that he wanted to expand our horizons and learn from our cosmic neighbors.

Harvard professor Avi Loeb said that he is hopeful, his discovery would spark more concern and support for the Galileo Project and its goals.
