Scientist From Harvard Believes That Alien Technology Has Crashed Into the Pacific Ocean

Some astronomers are certain that Alien life exists or at least existed at some point in time. However, no one is more certain than Avi Loeb who is an astronomer from Harvard who wrote an essay for The Debrief in which he talks about the need for a new research frontier that searches our Earth for alien technology.

Loeb talks more specifically about an interstellar object that he and other scientists such as astrophysicist Amir Siraj believes believe to contain alien technology. This interstellar object which they believe has crashed in 2014, sits at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. The reason why they believe this is because the U.S. government had even acknowledged the origin of this object, being from another solar system.

The astronomer describes our planet as a fishing net that catches all of the interstellar objects that fall. Many of these objects can contain new biological information that would help scientists better understand space and hopefully answer the question if something is truly out there or if we are the only ones in this vast space.

“Our discovery of an interstellar meteor heralds a new research frontier, in which the Earth serves as a fishing net for massive interstellar objects. As a result of encountering Earth and rubbing against its atmosphere, an interstellar object burns up in a bright fireball.” (Quote by Avi Loeb)

What Loeb has designed a mission that will search for this interstellar object that possibly contains alien technology. The plan is actually simpler than you would think, Loeb and his research team plan to use a big magnet and drag it across a specific portion of the Pacific Ocean where the object is believed to have crashed.

The Harvard Gazette has mentioned the efforts of Loeb and Siraj towards finding this object and also the three-year-long process of getting comfirmation from the Department of Defense.

The debris from CNEOS-2014–01–08 landed on the ocean floor near Papua New Guinea. A special magnet attached to a submarine will search the Ocean floor in the hopes to find this object. Besides the skepticism that everyone has around the subject of “aliens”, Loeb makes a very resounding point about searching for such interstellar objects.

In order to get meteors from a different planet that is rich in foreign materials, you need to spend around one billion dollars. Using the method of scoping these objects from the Ocean floor is a lot more efficient from a financial perspective. It is not just about money, but also the time it takes to plan such a mission and to get such rare interstellar samples. Loeb’s dream from this project is to play with some piece of technology that has been built outside of Earth:

“The fundamental question is whether any interstellar meteor might indicate a composition that is unambiguously artificial in origin? Better still, perhaps some technological components would survive the impact. My dream is to press some buttons on a functional piece of equipment that was manufactured outside of Earth.” (Quote by Avi Loeb)

Taking into consideration Avi Loeb’s reputation such as being the former chair of the astronomy department at Harvard University from 2011 to 2020, there is a good chance that he is right, but finding this interstellar object may not be as simple. If the team is able to find this meteor, it would be the first time humanity touches a rock from another solar system, with a probability of similar samples being hidden at the bottom of Oceans.
