(ORDO NEWS) — Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb , one of the world‘s most alien-obsessed scientists, has developed a mission plan to locate an interstellar object that appears to have crash-landed off the coast of Papua New Guinea in the past decade to determine if the object was an alien probe.
Recall that the other day the US government confirmed that in 2014 an interstellar object exploded over the Earth . This event was partially classified, but Avi Loeb and his colleague Amir Siraj were able to get to the bottom of the truth and publish a study several years before the US Air Force Space Command confirmed their case.
“Our discovery of an interstellar object marks a new frontier in research,” wrote Avi Loeb . – The main question is, can any interstellar object have a composition that unambiguously indicates its artificial origin? Moreover, it is possible that some technological components will survive the blow.”

The interstellar object, dubbed CNEOS-2014-01-08, is believed to have fallen into the Pacific Ocean , which clearly complicates not only its search, but also any attempts to obtain samples.
Avi Loeb, who will soon present an artificial intelligence-enabled telescope at Harvard that will work to detect UFOs, noted in his publication that an expedition to search for an interstellar object can be carried out using “scooping” magnets. Loeb suggests exploring an area of about ten square kilometers where the object’s debris is believed to have landed.
“My dream is to press a few buttons on functional equipment that was produced outside of Earth,” Loeb shared.
If his plans come true and fragments of an interstellar object, even if of natural origin, are extracted from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, it is unlikely that this will particularly upset scientists.
Obtaining samples of an object that arrived from another star system is the greatest dream of any space explorer.
