Aliens can use supernovae to launch interstellar spaceships

Astronomers from Harvard University have come up with a bold idea. According to them, extraterrestrial civilizations can use supernovae to accelerate spacecraft to near light speeds.

Abraham Loeb has definitely a passion for interstellar travel. Last year, he and colleague Amir Siraj announced the discovery of the first interstellar meteor. Recently, the same duet of researchers calculated how many such meteors accelerated by supernova explosions should hit the Earth’s atmosphere every month.

Now, the enthusiast of conquering the vastness of the Galaxy has taken the next step. Together with Manasvi Lingam he analyzed the prospects for using supernova explosions and other space disasters to launch interstellar probes. Scientists set out their findings in a preprint of a scientific article published on arXiv.org. In addition, Loeb talked about his idea on the pages of Scientific American.

Recall that Loeb is the chairman of the Advisory Committee of the Breakthrough Starshot project, which is funded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner. Enthusiasts hope to create a probe weighing about a gram, which will reach the Alpha Centauri in just 20 years. To do this, he will have to accelerate to 20% of the speed of light and cover a distance of four light years. Proponents of the idea believe that a powerful laser could give the ship the necessary acceleration by acting on a thin sail. At the same time, ten gigawatts (!) of laser power should fall per square meter of sail. This is about ten million times more energy than a square meter of the earth’s surface receives from the Sun.

Critics doubt the realism of this idea. They point out that such a powerful laser beam would simply vaporize the probe, no matter how perfect the sail was. In addition, it is unlikely that the design can withstand the acceleration that it is supposed to give it. There are other difficulties.

Despite all these objections, Loeb is full of optimism. The task of creating interstellar sailboats seems to him difficult, but solvable.

In a new article, an astronomer develops a bold idea: to use light or a stream of protons from a supernova burst instead of a laser beam. According to his calculations, a sail with a density of less than 0.5 grams per square meter could provide the apparatus with acceleration to 0.1 of the speed of light.

What a favorable contrast in comparison with the capabilities of our star! Sunlight is able to disperse the same probe only to thousandths of the speed of light, even if the ship will initially be at a distance of ten solar radii from the star. The thing is that a typical supernova releases a billion times more energy than our star in a month.

True, this idea raises a number of difficult questions.

First, in order to deliver probes to a future supernova, one must either live in its system or master interstellar travels. In the first case, aliens will have more important problems than launching probes: after all, a disaster will surely destroy their planet. In the second, it may be more convenient for them to send their devices using the already available interstellar engines (by the way, it is very difficult to imagine how they could be arranged).

Secondly, you need to know exactly when the outbreak will occur. Earth astronomers so far can predict such disasters only with an accuracy of ten thousand years . Perhaps alien scientists will be more versed in this matter.

Thirdly, before the explosion, the star emits intense streams of radiation, gas and dust into the surrounding space. So that they do not take the probe away from the star and do not damage it, the sail should be folded until the very hour X.

Fourth, at sublight speeds even microscopic dust particles will pierce the sail like cannonballs. In addition, he will rake interstellar gas in front of him, like a bulldozer. As soon as the mass of gas collected becomes comparable with the mass of the probe, the sail will begin to work like a brake. To avoid this, Loeb offers to fold the sail immediately after a short stage of acceleration.

Finally, all claims to the strength of the probe, the ability of the sail to reflect light and so on, expressed to Breakthrough Starshot, remain valid for “supernova sailboats”.

It is possible that some problems can be avoided if, instead of light, a proton flux is used as a “tailwind”. Such sails could use not only supernova explosions, but also particle flows from pulsars, black holes and other objects.

The authors admit that the galaxy is plowed by a fleet of such probes , and they suggest searching for their radio signals .

Belgian incident. UFO invasion in 1989-1990

The events of November 29, 1989 were confirmed by at least thirty different groups of witnesses and three separate groups of police officers. All witnesses described a large object flying at low altitude. The vessel was flat, triangular in shape, with lights below. This giant ship made no sound, slowly moving over the Belgian landscape.

A free exchange of information was organized as the Belgian population tracked this ship as it moved from the city of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany.

This is the first astounding sight to turn into a wave of UFO sightings over the next few months. In two cases, a pair of F-16 fighters pursued a mysterious object, but to no avail. On March 30, 1990, the military headquarters received a desperate call from the captain of the Belgian national police. He reported a giant triangle flying past him, and simultaneously two ground-based radar stations showed on their screens an object of unknown origin.

One of these bases was under NATO control near the city of Glons, located southeast of Brussels. After contacting other radar installations, they learned that at least four other stations also report the object on their screens. The object moved slowly along their screens, and could not send a transponder signal to identify itself.

Two F-16s received orders to intercept and identify this phenomenon, and one of the aircraft radars recorded the object. It appeared like a small diamond on the pilot’s screen. The pilot reported that just a few seconds after capturing the target, the object began to gain speed, quickly moving away from the radar zone. An hour-long chase followed, during which the F-16 two more times intercepted the signal of a strange ship and saw that it had disappeared from sight. The triangular ship seemed to play cat and mouse and finally got lost in the night lights of Brussels.

Fighter pilots reported that UFOs made maneuvers at speeds exceeding the capabilities of their equipment – the radar showed a sharp decrease in an unknown aircraft from 3 kilometers to 150 meters in 5 seconds! Unusual aircraft continued to appear for several months, and a triangular UFO was spotted more than 1,000 times, both day and night. The object fell low enough to be easily seen with the naked eye, and this event became one of the most high-profile stories in the Belgian media.

Another unusual phenomenon associated with the Belgian UFO was the inability to take a clear photo of it. Many observers kept their cameras ready and shot what they thought should be a clear image, but when the film showed up, the image was blurred,

This anomaly was examined by physics professor Auguste Meessen, who worked at Catholic University in Louvain. Meessen’s study gave the theory that infrared light should be the reason that almost all images were unclear.

To test his theory, he exposed the film to infrared radiation, and then photographed objects in ordinary light. The results were the same as in the photographs of a triangular UFO. One good image was finally shot in April 1990. This image showed the bottom of the ship’s hull with spotlights at three angles.

US President declassifies UFO materials

We are talking about the “Roswell incident” when in 1947 a balloon crashed in the USA, which was used to record sound waves from Soviet nuclear tests. The military hid the origin of the wreckage, which gave rise to many conspiracy theories.

US President Donald Trump promised to think about removing the secrecy stamp from materials about unidentified flying objects and the “Roswell incident.”

In an interview dedicated to Father’s Day, to his son Donald Trump Jr., which was broadcast on Thursday, the American leader said that many asked him a question about UFOs. 

“Millions of people want to go there and see. I won’t tell you that I know about it, but it’s very interesting.”

The son of a Republican asked him if he was prepared to declassify materials about UFOs and the “Roswell incident.” “I have to think about it,” Trump answered.

On July 4, 1947, the so-called Roswell incident. A balloon crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, which was used to record sound waves from Soviet nuclear tests as part of the US Air Force’s secret Mogul project. The military hid the origin of the wreckage, which gave rise to many conspiracy theories widely circulated by local and then national media – in particular, about the extraterrestrial origin of the crashed “unidentified apparatus.”

At the end of April, the Pentagon published videos of the US Navy, which, as noted in a press release, captured “air events” that were described as “unidentified.” We are talking about shots taken by the crews of American military aircraft in November 2004 and January 2015. 

As noted in the message, the videos got into the network back in 2007 and 2017, but then the Ministry of Defense did not give their permission to publish them, although the authenticity of the records of the US Navy was subsequently recognized.

At the end of 2017, it became known that the Pentagon had a classified program for collecting and analyzing data on “anomalous aerospace threats.” In 2007-2012, $ 22 million was allocated for it. At first, the program was administered by the intelligence department of the US Department of Defense.

Not the only US politician announcing a UFO in Roswell

It is worth noting that Donald Trump is not the first American politician to promise to declassify UFO information during the pre-election period. During the 2016 campaign, a similar statement was made by Trump’s main rival, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel’s program, she was asked a similar question about UFOs. In response to him, the former first lady clarified that “now it is called differently.” 

“These are unidentified air phenomena, illegal armed groups, such is the new nomenclature,” Clinton said. 

Then the politician said that if she wins the election, all information about such phenomena will be declassified, if this does not affect the sphere of national security.

A similar promise in 2019 was made by another candidate from the Democratic Party – Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. In an interview with TV presenter Joe Rogan, he noted that if he heads the state, he will definitely declassify UFO documents, as his wife constantly asks about this. 

Recall also that during the 1976 campaign, the future 39th president, Jimmy Carter, did not hesitate to say that in 1969 he witnessed the appearance of UFOs in the state of Georgia and even turned to the NICAP ufological organization with testimonies.

An armada of thousands of UFOs is gathering near the Earth?

After the significant launch of American astronauts to the ISS with the help of Elon Musk’s rocket, during the live broadcast of which, the cameras recorded the appearance of many UFOs, a similar incident happened during the broadcast of the recent launch of satellites on the SpaceX rocket live broadcast from the camera installed on the outer hull of the ISS. The camera was later disabled.

If you go to the channel of the live broadcast, there is a looped repetition of the previously filmed fragments of the video.

There is one more, little-known channel of live broadcasting from the ISS, which is not streaming video, where astronauts talk with the control center. The camera there is aimed at the control monitor for cameras installed on the ISS and usually it is just a blue screen or a window of the camera control program. Few people look at this camera…

The camera control program has two windows that broadcast video from the ISS in live mode and yesterday in one window, some amazing scenes were infold.

We don’t know for what reason, maybe the person in charge of the broadcast walked away or it was broadcast intentionally. However, it did not last very long and it was seen as someone closes and disables the windows of the broadcast, and then there was a blue screen and it just turned off completely.

Then the camera turned on the monitor, but already showed just a screen on the PC where you could see the control menu and nothing else.

What was on the video broadcast from the ISS camera?

A huge number of UFOs, lining up in tight rows and forming something like a “space network” in Earth’s orbit. 

It is clearly seen that the “network” is constantly replenished with new UFOs that cruise along the already lined UFOs, take their places or fly higher or lower.

These objects move at different speeds and along different trajectories. Most stand in even rows. 

These are not StarLink companions. First, Elon Musk did not launch so many satellites. Secondly, its satellites fly in a low orbit. Here you can see how the camera is moved to the right and left, observing precisely this UFO cluster.

Earth is not visible, which means that the camera is directed towards outer space. The question which arises is where are these UFOs. How far are they from our planet. Whether they are in high orbit in the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, where the ISS flies, or are they grouped outside the Earth, at a small distance from it.

Thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions?

In one moment in the video, the approach of the camera to the UFO cluster begins to decrease and an entire incredible large-scale UFO fleet becomes almost visible, which continues to form something incomprehensible to us. New UFOs arrive and take their place in the system. Interestingly, in the center of this, there is something that they form but hidden – an object of enormous size.

Please note that the camera does not show what is in the center of the system. There the image is blurry, as if what is located there is specially hidden. Lurking seems to be aliens themselves. What are they doing? Judging by the form of what they are building, their task is nearing completion and they have to align the left edge of the formation. But what is in the center? a planet? a giant ship? 

And again, we have several options for the development of further events:

Pessimistic Scenario

1) Preparations are underway for the invasion and establishment of control over the Earth

2) Preparations are underway for making contact with earthly civilization

3) There is evacuation from planet Earth of everything important and valuable, samples of plants, animals and other species have been collected to create a kind of “repository of species”, an “Ark”, in anticipation of some kind of global cataclysm.

Optimistic Scenario

1) We will finally come into contact with a highly developed alien civilization, which will give us the wonders of medicine and technology and we will live happily ever after.

2) Yes, our planet is threatened by a cataclysm that will either destroy it or all life on it, but good aliens rushed through the expanses of the universe. to take us from our doomed planet and transport us to our new home, which will be a wonderful world for people.

It seems that the audience takes places in the auditorium after the third call. We are waiting for the show, we are just extras in it.
