Harvard physicist plans long-shot mission to prove meteorite is an alien probe

By: April Carson

Avi Loeb, renowned extraterrestrial researcher, and Harvard physicist is on the cusp of embarking upon his most daring mission yet - one that could be etched in history. His expedition to Papua New Guinea shall comprise a budget of $1.5 million as he attempts to track down debris from a peculiar meteorite that crashed near the coast of this Pacific nation back in 2014. Loeb is convinced that the meteorite was an alien probe, sent from outer space to explore our planet and its inhabitants.

A powerful body of evidence suggests that the CNEOS1 2014-01-08 meteorite, measuring a half meter in width, is not an ordinary rock or stone. Instead, it hails from interstellar space and consists of material so hard and durable that it's most likely truly an extraterrestrial probe sent to explore our Solar System.

To test his hypothesis, Loeb is planning an ambitious mission involving the use of cutting-edge robotic technology to trace any remaining remnants. He's actively searching for philanthropists and investors who can help finance his project, with a speculated budget of $1.5 million.

Until then, he'll continue to analyze the meteorite for any further signs of extraterrestrial technology and search for ways to launch a mission that can answer humanity's age-old questions about life beyond our planet.

After several years of hard work and substantial aid from the United States military, Loeb and his crew have finally managed to pinpoint CNEOS1 2014-01-08's probable crash site to an area less than one square kilometer in size on the seabed - two kilometers underwater. Finding these fragments is akin to seeking out a needle in an enormous haystack, as they measure just a few millimeters. To make matters worse, Avi Loeb has undertaken the seemingly impossible feat of searching for large grains of sand within an expanse that contains only tiny granules - all spread across one square kilometer.

An esteemed Harvard Astronomer may have uncovered undeniable evidence that an asteroid passing through our Solar System could be a sophisticated alien spaceship.

Loeb asserted to The Daily Beast that the risk was worth taking as any remnants recovered may potentially be "technological", signifying indisputable proof of extraterrestrial life.

To search for fragments, Loeb and a team of Earth-based astronomers will use cutting-edge infrared technology to identify the asteroid, called ‘Oumuamua.

According to Loeb, the upcoming expedition in Papua New Guinea is sure to be an educational experience. The team has finalized all preparations: they have a vessel and a squad of highly qualified individuals with extensive oceanic exploration knowledge.

Loeb has been adamant in his belief that the mission is a game-changer for science. He predicted that launching this spacecraft will demonstrate “the power of human investigations,” and be an exciting opportunity to further understand our universe.

His message made clear that the mission had received significant approval: "Most notably," he declared, "we've now been given the go-ahead from Papua New Guinea!"

To locate the meteorite fragments, Loeb and his team methodically combed through the seafloor for two weeks with a selection of tailor-made sand sifters-- some outfitted with magnets, others akin to massive sieves. The delay of eight years between mapping out where it fell and starting this mission was due to their tedious process of pinpointing exactly where on Earth those pieces had landed.

With the meteorite located, Loeb has set his sights on a much more ambitious goal: to prove that it's an alien probe. It's a long shot, but the physicist is convinced that there are clues hidden within its composition and construction that point to an extraterrestrial origin.

It was no easy feat, as not one instrument alone could accurately track CNEOS1 2014-01-08's venture to the seafloor. But if anyone were willing and determined enough to try, it would be Loeb. As more and more scientists have further accepted that humanity is probably not the only intelligent species in this universe, Loeb has been a proponent of such an idea even when it wasn't socially acceptable.

With the help of a deep-sea submersible, Loeb and his team plan to take samples of the meteorite's surface and analyze its elements. This will be done with a series of sophisticated instruments so that they can compare it to materials found here on Earth.

Unafraid to invest in his ideas, Loeb has invested the funds of donors to create the Galileo Project. His mission is simple: build a global network of small telescopes devoted solely to scanning the sky for extraterrestrial machines and/or evidence that they once existed by utilizing 'Oumuamua as an example. This pioneering project will be one-of-a-kind and should not go unnoticed.

To pinpoint the exact location of CNEOS1 2014-01-08, Loeb needed data from two separate sources. First were sensors on U.S. military missile warning satellites that detect meteorites with their sensitive infrared detectors in addition to scanning for potential threats such as missiles being fired.

Not only can these satellites furnish us with a general hint of where the meteorite is heading, but they also record pictures of its fireball caused by its flaming and a quick voyage through Earth's atmosphere. Examining both the timing and intensity of this fireball reveals a lot about a meteorite's makeup. To put it simply, the more time a meteor spends in the atmosphere before igniting, the sturdier it is.

To find more precise telemetry for the meteorite's path than what the military had to offer, Loeb searched close earthquake sensors. As it turned out, “the shock wave from the meteor explosion generated a high-quality signal in a seismometer located at Manus Island," - an island belonging to Papua New Guinea - he wrote on Medium.

Armed with this new evidence, Loeb believes that the meteorite was much tougher than it would have been if it had merely been a chunk of space rock. This unusual durability has encouraged Loeb to consider the possibility that it could be an interstellar spaceship sent by aliens.

By utilizing both of their sets of data, Loeb and his team were able to reduce the possible impact area from 100 square kilometers down to only one. As stated in a study published online on March 13 that still awaits peer review, this enormous reduction in geographic uncertainty will significantly improve the search efficiency during any future ocean expeditions for meteorite fragments.

The study also suggested that the meteorite may not be a natural object and that it might have been sent to Earth by extraterrestrial intelligence. Of course, this is all hypothesis at this stage, and Loeb himself admits that “it’s still possible the object was created naturally.
