According to a Harvard professor, humans were visited by an extraterrestrial object in 2017.
Theoretical physicist Avi Loeb presents his hypothesis on a peculiar-shaped object that entered our solar system a number of years ago in his upcoming book Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth.
The “Oumuamua” interstellar object was initially seen in 2017 by Haleakala Observatory in Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS telescope. Researchers discovered that it had come from the direction of Vega, a star in the Lyra constellation that is roughly 25 light-years distant from Earth, and had passed across the ecliptic plane on September 6.
Oumuamua, which means “scout” in Hawaiian, began speeding up just three days later. It ultimately approached Earth on October 7 by “moving fast toward the constellation Pegasus and the blackness beyond,” according to Loeb.
The head of the astronomy department at Harvard University, Loeb, denies the idea that Oumuamua, which is thought to be the first interstellar object discovered in our solar system, was just another comet because it places too much emphasis on the “familiar.”
While speaking with the New York Post, he asked what would happen if a caveman saw a cellphone. He’s lived surrounded by rocks, so he would have assumed it was simply another shiny rock.
According to Loeb, there are two significant facts that imply Oumuamua wasn’t merely a comet but rather an advanced piece of extraterrestrial technology. The object’s measurements are the first specific information; it was found to be “five to ten times length than it was broad.” According to Loeb, the cigar-like form is unusual for a naturally occurring space object.
The movement of Oumuamua, according to the theoretical physicist, is the most important factor supporting his idea.
