Hunting for extraterrestrials with the Galileo program: This is the goal of a new project led by Harvard University astronomer Avie Lope and is known to the general public for its study of the mysterious penetration of the solar system. Oumuamua, And for breakthrough efforts seeking to initiate research towards nearby exoplanets. The activity was born out of free donations and has so far raised nearly $ 2 million, but the announcement of the project was greeted with some skepticism by some scientific community.
There are elements that provide interesting clues from various angles and “we can no longer ignore the possible existence of extraterrestrial technological civilizations”: which enlivens the new ambitious project promoted by Lope. The traces mentioned are particularly intriguing celestial object Oumuamua, An asteroid or comet The first object to come out of a strange cigar shape and from outside the solar system is certain, but Loeb considered it a possible alien study, and the latest report on unidentified aerial events (UAP) released by the US government.
None of this is evidence, Galileo project researchers make clear, but “we want to remove the fog through transparent and scientific analysis,” said Frank Lockian, co-manager of the project and CEO of Brooker. The project aims to create a network of small telescopes around the planet: to identify any extraterrestrial probes: with an artificial intelligence system to monitor the irregular movements of objects in orbit in the solar system, a quick alarm system to intercept any observer, such as Omumuwa. .
“We can no longer ignore the existence of extraterrestrial technological civilizations,” the top science team, including professors from the universities of Cambridge, California, Chicago, Princeton and Caltech, on the Galileo Project website, explaining about the researchers involved. There is no real evidence of the existence of alien civilizations visiting our planet, but considering the many planets that have already been identified, as well as recent sightings such as Omumuwa, the clear alien origin and the unexplained flight observed by the U.S. military, the researchers say they are developing a structure capable of understanding these phenomena well. They believe in the necessity of being.
“There is nothing particularly complicated about what we propose: it is a network of telescopes that would cost half a million dollars to build a civil network that would recognize unidentified flying objects today,” he explained. ANSA Giancarlo Genta, Professor of Mechanical Construction at Emeritus Turin Polytechnic. We also think of a network of planes in the atmosphere, one to check for any probes in Earth’s orbit and one to identify the arrival of objects outside the solar system.
Zenta added, “Lope is still a highly valued scientist and in recent years he has dedicated himself to projects of great impact, for example” a breakthrough effort. ”
In the meantime, the project is causing the scientific community to discuss, often wait and see, as people like Adam Frank of the University of Rochester explain in science that with the new network we will be ready for a new Omumua, while others will still call the project ‘Alan Fitzsimmons-like critique of the project’ . “Personally I believe there is no chance of any kind of results – Zenta concluded – but of course … you never know!”
