Astonishingly, Harvard Professor Avi Loeb claimed to have recovered the minuscule remains of what he said belonged to an unexplained space craft that had fallen into the Pacific Ocean around ten years prior, in the hopes that they would serve as evidence of a highly developed extraterrestrial civilization.
In a “historic expedition,” Loeb and his colleagues were able to collect 50 miniscule particle spherules that resemble dust particles and weigh 35 mg in total. Off Papua New Guinea’s shore, the particles were gathered.
In 2014, Loeb claimed to have witnessed a “runaway fireball” that he said had erupted in the lower atmosphere before falling to Earth’s oceans.
The mysterious object, which has been labelled as , “is actually tougher and has material strength that is higher than all the space rocks that were cut along by NASA,” said Professor Loeb, while speaking to Fox News from the expedition boat.
‘Perfectly round’ particles discovered
“Given IM1’s high speed and anomalous material strength, its source must have been a natural environment different from the solar system, or an extraterrestrial technological civilisation,” he continued. According to the researcher, the particles were “perfectly round.”
He compared the items, which he examined under a microscope and claimed “the objects appear to look like molten raindrops,” to blood droplets.
When my daughter inquired whether she might string one on a necklace, I informed her that it was too little to do so, according to Loeb. The goal of Prof. Loeb’s group has been to learn more about the object’s genesis.
This has never been done before, and it could be the first time that humans have ever touched extraterrestrial material. We never had a celestial neighbour leave us a package on the doorstep,” he remarked.
Prof. Loeb and his colleagues overcame the challenge of retrieving minuscule space elements from the ocean floor by employing strong magnets and tracking the path of the enigmatic item.
“The interpretation will be left to follow-up papers. “In response to the nay-sayers we say nothing other than show our data in our first publication. One cannot argue with facts, only with interpretations,” Prof Loeb wrote in the latest of his 33 essays
The particles will be carried back to the lab by the team where they will analyse their elemental and isotopic composition, and prepare a report on the basis of data gathered which will be published in a paper submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.
