Avi Loeb, chair of Harvard’s Department of Astronomy, believes he’s already found some of that garbage. In his upcoming book, “Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), out Jan. 26, the professor lays out a compelling case for why an object that recently wandered into our solar system was not just another rock but actually a piece of alien technology.
Harvard Professor says Aliens Visited Solar system in 2017. According to the professor, a peculiar shaped object entered our solar system three years ago. The interstellar object was named “Oumuamua”. It was first observed through Pan-STARRS telescope in Hawaiian in 2017. According to Scientists it was just another comet. But Professor Avi lobe dismisses that assumption. Lobe says the object was 5 to 10 times longer than it was wide.
The Cigar like shaped is not typical for a natural object. According to the professor Oumuamua’s movement was also not natural. The object was not bound to sun’s gravity, which means the object was travelling on its own.
The object travelled toward our solar system from the direction of Vega, a nearby star 25 light-years away, and intercepted our solar system’s orbital plane on Sept. 6, 2017. On Sept. 9, its trajectory brought it closest to the sun. At the end of September, it blasted at about 58,900 miles per hour past Venus’ orbital distance, and then, on Oct. 7, it shot past Earth’s before “moving swiftly toward the constellation Pegasus and the blackness beyond,” Loeb writes in the book. The object was first spotted by an observatory in Hawaii containing the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) — the highest-definition telescope on Earth.
The space object was dubbed ‘Oumuamua (pronounced “oh moo ah moo ah”), which is Hawaiian for — roughly — “scout.”
