Harvard physicist in search for ‘alien artefact’ that fell from space

By: April Carson

A well-known physicist from Harvard is organizing an expedition in the Pacific to search for a possible extraterrestrial object that may have crashed into the ocean.

Avi Loeb is planning a $1.5 million ocean expedition to Papua New Guinea to search for pieces of an object that crashed near Manus Island in 2014. The Harvard physicist believes the object may be an extraterrestrial artifact, and is hoping to prove it through careful analysis.

In 2019, Loeb observed an object which was later identified as the first interstellar meteor ever discovered, indicating that it came from outside our solar system. The Department of Defense's space command confirmed the meteor's interstellar origin to NASA in April 2022, according to Loeb.

According to Loeb and his team, the meteor they examined was stronger than any of the other 272 meteors listed in NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies catalog.

The expedition will send a team of scientists to explore the site where it is believed that an extraterrestrial object landed seven years ago. The team plans to use underwater robots, sonar surveys, and geophysics instruments to map out the area and search for objects associated with the meteor.

Loeb wrote on Medium that he was interested in the conclusion and formed a team to plan a two-week expedition to locate meteor fragments on the ocean floor. The goal is to examine the composition of the fragments and determine whether the object is natural or man-made.

"We possess a boat and have formed a skilled and experienced team of ocean expedition experts. Additionally, we have comprehensive designs and manufacturing plans for the necessary equipment, such as sleds, magnets, collection nets, and mass spectrometers," he stated.

He has received funding from the Breakthrough Initiatives, a science foundation created by Internet magnate Yuri Milner.

Loeb suggests that the meteor might be durable because it could be of artificial origin, having been launched by a distant technological civilization a billion years ago.

The exploration of the ocean will involve a ship that uses a long-line winch to deploy a magnetic sled. The team will be made up of seven people dedicated to operating the sled, as well as a scientific team.

The team will be looking for evidence of an alien artifact, such as a stone or metal object that is unlike anything found in the ocean before. The expedition will collect samples for further analysis and research back on land.

Loeb and his team wrote that they will be using a sled equipped with magnets, cameras, and lights to search the ocean floor. They will do this within a 10km × 10km search box, which has been selected based on information from various sources that helped to narrow down the search area.

The team hopes to recover the artifact, which they expect to be of artificial origin, and analyze it for evidence of its origin. The analysis will involve examining the material composition as well as any markings on the object that could indicate it was made by a technological civilization.

Loeb's team will find fragments of different sizes based on the meteor's composition. If the meteor is made of iron, the physicist predicts the team will find around a thousand fragments larger than a millimeter. However, if the meteor is made of stainless steel, the team expects to find fewer fragments but with larger sizes, with potentially tens of fragments larger than a centimeter.

Loeb stated that if his team finds a significant technological artifact during the expedition, he has committed to bringing it to the Museum of Modern Art in New York for exhibition, as per his promise to curator Paola Antonelli. He has also expressed his hope that such a discovery could lead to new conversations about the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

The team is currently undergoing rigorous training in preparation for the expedition. They are learning how to use specialized tools and navigation systems, as well as how to handle and analyze the materials that may be found during the mission.

According to the Daily Beast, the launch of the expedition is planned for this summer. Loeb, who is co-founder of the Galileo Project with a mission to search for extraterrestrial signs, cautioned that failure was a possibility but remained committed nonetheless.

He said that if a claim is extraordinary, then the evidence provided to support it should also be extraordinary. He added that the evidence should be scrutinized and tested by experts.

The expedition has gained the attention of leading scientists and engineers from around the world who have expressed excitement at the prospect of discovering an alien artifact. Loeb is hopeful that they will be able to learn more about the object's origin and its implications for our understanding of the universe.
