A Harvard scientist is planning to go on a mission to find out what lies at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. He believes that alien technology lies in its depths.
Avi Loeb, an astrophysicist, believes that an extraterrestrial object had crashed on the Earth’s surface in 2014 and was some kind of a spaceship.

The US Space Command (USSC) dropped a report last week which confirmed the notion that the object was from a different star system.
The agency made the conclusion that this projectile, which had streaked across the sky off the coast of Manus Island, Papua New Guinea, was indeed a meteor.
Professor Avi Loeb did not believe these reports and claimed on Wednesday that this projectile could have been constructed by extraterrestrials.
“Our discovery of an interstellar meteor heralds a new research frontier,” the Harvard astronomer wrote in an essay for The Debrief.
“The fundamental question is whether any interstellar meteor might indicate a composition that is unambiguously artificial in origin.
“Better still, perhaps some technological components would survive the impact.”
The Scientist Has Set His Vision To Prove That There Is Life Outside Earth
Professor Loeb had been studying astronomy for decades and had recently set his eyes to prove that life is possible beyond the Earth.
His claims are quite bold and make regular headlines. He has even faced criticism from others in the same field over his extraterrestrial theories.
Professor Loeb, along with a student at Harvard, were the first ones who identified the projectile as interstellar a few years ago.
They wrote a paper about this but were ordered not to publish it as they had used classified government data for their personal research.
The scientist is calling for an expedition to look for whatever is left of the object, right after the USSC confirmed their hunch on April 7.
He composed an essay and mentioned that a retrieval expedition could be achieved using “scooping” magnets to explore the 10 square kilometer region of the Pacific Ocean where the object is thought to have landed.
“My dream is to press some buttons on a functional piece of equipment that was manufactured outside of Earth,” he added.
The Several Controversies Around This Scientist
The prolific scientist is no stranger to controversy and has produced provocative research on space radiation, black holes, and other topics in his field.
The scientist has trained his focus on a more contentious topic, over the last decade, which dealt with the possibility that Earth had been visited by extraterrestrials.
Professor Loeb has claimed that Oumuamua, which was an interstellar object that zipped through the Solar System in 2017, was alien technology. He doubled down on the heavily contested comments, which earned him headlines across the globe, in a book published last year.
“What would happen if a caveman saw a cellphone?” Loeb wrote. “He’s seen rocks all his life, and he would have thought it was just a shiny rock.”
He debated with other astronomers who argued that the extraterrestrial object was a comet, saying that it was akin to letting “the familiar define what we might discover.”
Several scientists have branded Loeb’s claim as irresponsible and outlandish.
Scientist Loeb is currently leading the Galileo Project, which is aimed to establish a network of advanced telescopes that will scan the skies for signs of life.
