Don’t think aliens exist? Harvard University astrophysicist Avi Loeb disagrees! Loeb believes aliens should be taken seriously. These UFO incidents and alien encounter stories back up Loeb’s theories.
Alien Existence is Traced Back to the 1850s
In 1853, two UFOs were spotted by a group of students and professors in Burritt College, Tenn. The students believed that one UFO was like a “small new moon” and the other one resembled “a large star.” Another much-discussed sighting was the 2008 Stephenville Lights case, where over 50 people sighted a UFO. These were some intriguing events that led people to believe that aliens are real. But there was no concrete proof.
UFOs are Spotted by Many Experts
UFO claims from those who have already been to space seem even more believable. Edgar Mitchell, Cady Coleman, and Dr. Brian O’Leary are among many who claimed that they have seen UFOs. These people also believe governments have evidence of UFOs and aliens and have been covering up the information.
Avi Loeb Research
The Harvard University astrophysicist has done controversial work on black holes, gamma-ray explosions, the early cosmos, and other similar topics. But for more than 10 years he’s been pursuing another topic: “Aliens existence in space, and how to locate them.”
Loeb’s recent work involves Breakthrough Starshot, a project aiming to send a laser-boosted spacecraft on fast-speed journeys to nearby stars. But the project was affected in 2017 when astronomers rushed to research an alien visitor that they saw in their telescopes.
The entity seen was given the name “Oumuamua,” which is a Hawaiian word that loosely means “lookout.” Oumuamua resembled a 100-meter-long cigarette or pancake, which clearly did not match the appearance of an asteroid or a meteor. Oumuamua was at least 10 times shinier than an ordinary rock in our solar system. It was reflective enough to imply the glow of lustrous metal.
Surprisingly, the object accelerated more quickly than any star’s decreasing gravitational hold might account for. The same kind of behavior was observed before by students in Burritt College, Tenn. The UFO sighted by the students and professors also accelerated and zoomed off in the same manner.
Loeb, after studying Oumuamua with Shmuel Bialy, concluded that it was our first contact with aliens. However, the scientific community was not sold on the idea and criticized Loeb’s work.
