On Monday, astronomers announced a new project, Galileo, which will search for alien existences, in the form of technology or civilizations. The initiative is based on the idea that “science should not dogmatically reject potential extraterrestrial explanations.” The Galileo project is led by Professor Avi Loeb (a famous controversial science author), who claimed that the interstellar object ‘Oumuamua’ (“cigar”), not photographed in detail by more than a single pixel, is an alien object.
“It’s time to do scientific research on unidentified things, like the ones we send into space”, began by saying Loeb in the public ad, now available on Youtube. Frank Laukyan, a Harvard researcher and co-founder of the Galileo Project, said the project’s main goal is to detect any objects or motions early on.
Loeb and his team of 14 astronomers will use the Pan-STARRS telescope in Hawaii and another 8-meter telescope currently being built at the Vera C. Rubin Observatory in Chile. Early detection could allow scientists to send out sensors for these objects, according to Frank Laukyan.
The project was named Galileo because “the significance of potential discoveries of rigorously validated scientific evidence about extraterrestrial technology could have a similar impact on astronomy and our view of the world as Galileo’s pioneering use of telescopes in astronomical observations in history,” he explains. press release.
Loeb wants to examine unidentified flying objects (UFOs) within Earth’s atmosphere that, according to the Project Galileo website, could be artifacts from extinct alien civilizations or active extraterrestrial equipment. The team plans to publish their data to encourage other scientists to participate in the research.
“The impact of any discovery of space technology on science and our view of the world would be enormous.”, but not The project Location.
