It has been reported that a renowned professor of astrophysics from Harvard named “Avi Loeb” has recently shown an interest in retrieving the unknown lost parts of an “interstellar meteor”. According to the professor, the meteor struck the Earth back in 2014, and he is convinced that it came from somewhere into our solar system. Loeb has also been the ex-longest serving chairperson of Harvard’s Astronomy Department and is now hunting for the Pacific to recover the fragments of this meteor from the grave depths of the ocean.
The professor has been quite inquisitive about this meteor since 2019, and it can be proved from the fact that he, along with his student, also conducted a research study regarding this mysterious meteor, although the study has been published in a “not-yet peer-reviewed paper in ariXiv”. As per the research paper, the meteor seems to be composed of dominant and compelling materials, and this is the reason why it meticulously survived to complete its journey to Earth. The findings from the research demonstrated that the meteor might have been made of a material stronger than iron.
Then, in 2021, Loeb finally made up his mind to work on the mission of recovering this mysterious meteor from the Pacific Ocean. Loeb is of the opinion that this specific meteor might have its origins in an ancient alien civilization. As per the reports from NBC, Loeb stated, “We’re planning to board the ship and build a sled with a magnet attached to it that will scoop the ocean floor. And we will go back and forth, like mowing the lawns across the region, 10 kilometers in size, and collect with the magnets, all the fragments that are attracted to it, and then brush them off and study their composition in the laboratory.”
To that count, the whole process of discovering this lost meteor would be full of excitement and thrill as it comes from the alien world according to Leob so we are just curious to know how aliens work with their technologies and transform them as well. According to the reports received from Space.com, “The object is only 1.5 feet long, and it crashed nearly 200 miles off the north coast of one of Papua New Guinea’s more remote islands.” Moreover, the meteor hit the Earth with 1% of the force of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb. Hence, we can say that it is not impossible to find this mysterious meteor.
Let’s see how the professor, along with his team, will work on this project and achieve the breakthrough. Last but not least, all our best wishes are with the Professor and his team for this mission.
