Harvard University professor Avi Loeb announced that the working group he created continues to work on the search for alien technologies implemented in outer space. Such work of a professor at an American university has already received a negative response in the scientific community, but Avi Loeb himself is not at all embarrassed by this. According to him, modern science reminds him of the ossified dogmas of the Middle Ages, when everyone was simply convinced that the Sun and the rest of the world revolved around the Earth, and when alternative points of view were perceived with hostility.
Remember history how Galileo was ostracized? Then he was tried for the fact that he questioned the dogma that the Earth is motionless, that the Sun revolves around it. Therefore, today we are implementing our Galileo project in order to discover those technologies that may well be used in space by alien civilizations.
The work of Professor Loeb a few years ago caused quite a stir in the scientific community. He investigated a space object called Oumuamua (Oumumua), which was the first discovered interstellar space objects passing through the solar system. Discovered it in 2017. At first it was classified as a comet, then as an asteroid. Avi Leba's working group said there were signs that it was a man-made object. Professor Loeb himself believes that the technologies of an alien civilization have been implemented on Oumuamua, since the object's speed "does not correspond to those indicators that are characteristic of hyperbolic asteroids." Despite the fact that in 2019 the scientific astronomical community rejected the hypothesis of the artificial origin of Oumuamua, Avi Loeb did not abandon his arguments, noting that none of modern scientists could explain the "strange dynamics" of this object, could not imagine its mathematical calculations.
Avi Loeb states that Oumuamua is "an alien ship disguised as an asteroid that collects data about the Earth and the solar system as a whole."
The Galileo project, which is supervised and promoted by Professor Loeb, aims to create a global research network that includes dozens of telescopes around the world, as well as special cameras, sensors, computers capable of detecting and exploring unidentified space objects. At the same time, funding for such work is still carried out in the form of private donations. The American state is indifferent to the project.
What is in the sky should not be interpreted by politicians or the military, simply because they have the appropriate knowledge at the level of scientists. This should be done by the scientific community. However, while the scientific community is skeptical about our work. But we intend to develop the project by connecting universities in Britain, Sweden, and the USA.
One of the directions of such work is the study of radio signals coming from deep space. Loeb's team is creating an algorithm that could extract signals that carry information produced by living things.
According to the American professor, the study of possible alien technologies can bring earth technologies to a completely different level of development.
