The alien ship that visited our planet in 2017 left a message for scientists, see
According to Harvard professor Avi Loeb, an alien spacecraft visited our solar system in 2017 and sent a “message” to the scientific community.
In October 2017, Canadian astronomer Robert Weryk made a startling discovery. Using data from the Pan-STARRS1 telescope at the University of Hawaii at Kaleakala Observatory in Hawaii, Weryk detected a strange elongated object the size of a football field in our solar system, 300,000 kilometers away.
Strangest of all, it seemed to have accelerated slightly, propelled by some unknown force.
Due to its peculiar orbit, it passed close to our sun, leading scientists to speculate that the space object, later called ‘Oumuamua, or “beater” in Hawaiian, was the first visitor outside our solar system.
Over the last three years, several attempts have been made to explain ‘Oumuamua’s unique characteristics. It’s speculated to be a hydrogen iceberg, while others speculate it’s a space rock flying through space, coated in a layer of “organic sunscreen”.
The solution may please Avi Loeb, an astronomer and professor of physics at Harvard University.
His controversial claim that ‘Oumuamua was a probe sent by an alien civilization received a lot of media attention and, unsurprisingly, divided scholars.
Loeb explores his fascinating insights in his new book, “Aliens: The First Signs of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth,” which uses the story of “Oumuamua” as the foundation for a larger conversation:
The scientific community, which has long debated the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence, must take this fight seriously.
In an interview with Futurism, Loeb said: “Scientists’ explanations fail to describe many of ‘Oumuamua’s properties and peculiarities. According to him, the scientific community “approves something we’ve never seen before”.
Loeb’s “dust bunny” concept theorizes that ‘Oumuamua’s peculiar trajectory can be explained by its extremely low density.
“The problem is, I don’t think dust the size of a football field would survive a million-year journey through interstellar space,” Loeb said, dismissing that theory. “I mean, I don’t think it’s going to stick together.”
