Groundbreaking evidence of intelligent extraterrestrial life could be on the horizon, with a leading physicist from Harvard University suggesting that conclusive scientific proof may emerge within the next month.
In 2014, a UFO resembling a meteor crashed into the Pacific Ocean, leaving behind tiny metal fragments. Harvard physics professor Avi Loeb, who also serves as the director of the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, believes that these fragments of IM1 could potentially be composed of an artificial alloy.
Loeb expressed his anticipation for the forthcoming analysis results, stating that they could potentially unveil humanity’s first contact with extraterrestrial beings. He shared his hopeful outlook, stating for the dailystar.co.uk, “I am expecting further news within a month. That’s the hope.”
Four research institutions are currently engaged in studying the recovered metal fragments, utilizing their scientific equipment and personnel to delve into their nature.
Consisting of approximately 50 mostly iron spheres ranging from 0.1 to 0.7mm in diameter, these fragments are suspected to originate from an object outside of our solar system. This conclusion is based on the analysis conducted by Loeb, a former student, and scientists affiliated with US Space Command.
Loeb’s colleagues at renowned institutions in Germany, Papua New Guinea, and the United States are meticulously examining the spheres. Their investigation aims to determine the atomic isotopes, chemical composition, and other key characteristics that could potentially validate their extraterrestrial origin.
“We are in the process of finding out, within a month or so, what this meteor was made of and whether it is perhaps technological in origin or not,” Loeb said.
The outcome of this ongoing analysis holds the promise of unveiling groundbreaking evidence that could reshape our understanding of the universe and confirm the existence of intelligent life beyond our planet.
Avi Loeb and his team have given the mysterious object a name: IM1, short for ‘Interstellar Meteor 1,’ though it is also referred to as CNEOS 20140108 in NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) meteor catalog.
IM1 stands out amongst the 273 fireballs listed in the NASA CNEOS meteor catalog due to its exceptional material strength, making it a compelling subject for scientific investigation.
According to Loeb, IM1 exhibited remarkable characteristics. It surpassed 95 percent of nearby stars in terms of velocity, indicating some form of propulsion. Additionally, it was composed of an exceptionally resilient material.
While Loeb hasn’t dismissed the possibility that IM1 could be an alien probe, he has also considered alternative explanations. The estimated size of the object, approximately 3 feet in diameter and weighing around half a ton, falls within the range of humanity’s own deep-space probes like Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. These spacecraft, with their extended high-gain antennas, measure about 12 feet in length.
Voyager 2, an unmanned interstellar probe, currently resides over 12.3 billion miles away from Earth, continuously transmitting its “heartbeat signal” back to NASA.
Loeb acknowledges that if IM1 were similar to the Voyager spacecraft colliding with a planet, it would appear as a meteor. The ongoing investigation aims to shed light on the true nature of IM1 and determine its origin.
