Mysterious ‘Oumuamua Was Alien ‘Reconnaissance Mission’, Harvard Researcher

‘Oumuamua, the mysterious interstellar object that has caused much head scratching in scientific circles, now has a new possible origin: part of a reconnaissance mission initiated by an alien civilization wanting to check out other galaxies.

The latest theory on ‘Oumuamua comes from a study published on Thursday by Shmuel Bialy and Abraham Loeb, a pair of astronomers with the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

When scientists reviewed data collected by the Pan-STARRS-1 survey of ‘Oumuamua’s closest flyby of the sun on September 9, 2017, they noted that the mysterious rock gained speed, rather than slowing down. Researchers at the time explained that the increase in ‘Oumuamua’s velocity was likely explained by outgassing, the release of gas trapped or frozen inside the rock. The object itself was later classified as a comet by officials.

However, this explanation didn’t sit right with Bialy and Loeb, who argue that had outgassing been the cause of ‘Oumuamua’s increased velocity, it would’ve sent the interstellar object into a spin, which wasn’t observed.

The pair suggested that ‘Oumuamua could actually be a light sail, a spacecraft that relies on radiation pressure for power, that’s been sent from an alien civilization looking for signs of life in our solar system.

“We explain the excess acceleration of ‘Oumuamua away from the sun as the result of the force that the sunlight exerts on its surface. For this force to explain measured excess acceleration, the object needs to be extremely thin, of order a fraction of a millimeter in thickness but tens of meters in size,” Loeb told Universe Today via email.

“This makes the object lightweight for its surface area and allows it to act as a light sail. Its origin could be either natural (in the interstellar medium or proto-planetary disks) or artificial (as a probe sent for a reconnaissance mission into the inner region of the solar system).”

Bialy and Loeb later explained in their work that should their theory prove true, there is the slight possibility that the light sail could even just be a “defunct sail floating under the influence of gravity and stellar radiation.”

But then again, alien civilizations.

“The alternative is to imagine that ‘Oumuamua was on a reconnaissance mission. The reason I contemplate the reconnaissance possibility is that the assumption that ‘Oumumua followed a random orbit requires the production of ~10^{15} such objects per star in our galaxy. This abundance is up to a hundred million times more than expected from the solar system, based on a calculation that we did back in 2009,” Loeb wrote.

“A surprisingly high overabundance, unless ‘Oumuamua is a targeted probe on a reconnaissance mission and not a member of a random population of objects.”

Questions remain regarding the origin of ‘Oumuamua, and considering the rock is no longer in our solar system and is much too far away for researchers to observe, the lab coats might be in the dark for some time on the matter.

NASA admits that “Mysterious Objects” photographed in space are “unknown”

NASA has labeled the strange sightings that occurred during Shuttle space missions as “unknown objects” on an official website. Since then, the images have resurfaced after being published on YouTube.

The NASA cameras captured three strange objects in space – and the agency cannot explain what they are. The images on the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website from NASA resurfaced after being shared on YouTube by controversial conspiracy theorist Scott C. Waring. In a 1985 photo, a snake shaped object, like many seen from Earth, floats on the dark background of space.

A second photo of the same year shows a large object that bizarrely imitates a screw or a rivet. And a third object – photographed by the Space Shuttle astronauts in 1990 – shows an object similar to a grid suspended over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Brazil.

Mysteriously, all the images were classified as “unknown objects” by the space agency – apparently contradicting the consensus that these structures are simply space junk.

Scott – who has earned a reputation in the past for his bizarre claims of having found mysterious life on Mars – found the photos disconcerting and shared them on his YouTube channel. He was more fascinated by the snake-like UFO, which suggested it could be “alive, organic”.

“It seems that it floats in space like a real animal,” said Scott, mentioning a conversation he had with an astronaut earlier this year who said he saw something “that looked like a semi-transparent living creature” outside of the International Space Station.

UFO hunter claims spike in sightings of ‘snake-like objects’ in US skies – speculation runs rampant

Over the last month, an elongated unidentified object, which reminded some of a cigarette or a snake, has been spotted in several US states, from California to Wyoming, and even Scotland. However, there is still no explanation of what it was or where it came from.

Numerous sightings of snake-shaped objects hovering in several places in the US, from Wyoming to Texas, have prompted conspiracy theories about the government secretly spying on people, The Daily Star reports. The claims were fueled by reports about one of them hovering over Dallas, Texas. According to the outlet, images of the “craft,” which witnesses on the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) describe as “a black pipe” with a “dull metal colour,” have now emerged, although they were initially taken in September.

The outlet reports that at least two people have independently said that they spotted the strange object that day.

“They had also seen the object and shared the exact same testimony. That definitely adds some validity to this sighting. I don’t think, right now, anyone is lying,” UFO hunter Jane Kyle told the British outlet, dismissing an allegation that it could be something as simple as a balloon.

With no feasible explanation available, researchers have suggested their own theories. Kyle agreed with one of them, saying it could be something “top-secret military,” but added we will hardly be able to find out exactly if that was the case as “it’s something we don’t have access to as the public.” However, the unusual shape of this object offers room for debate.

“A snake-like UFO, I feel like I want to lean towards that not being something of our own,” she told the outlet.

Over the past month, the enigmatic object (or similar objects) has been spotted above numerous places in the US- New York, Wyoming and Washington -even Edinburgh, Scotland. It was allegedly spotted for the first time in June above California’s Mojave Desert, located not far away from the notorious Area 51 – a military base, where, as various conspiracy theorists claim, the US government allegedly experiments with alien technologies. Its reappearance there was reported in September.

“Something big in the sky up there is moving really-really-really slow. And it is tilting back and forth sometimes. Look at how slow that thing is moving. And it’s humungous. It’s really-really big,” said the author of the video.

Quantum physicist makes impressive predictions about UFOs

A “time capsule of the mind” by the physicist Deep Prasad serves as a kind of mission statement for an in-depth exploration of technology related to unexplained sightings of UFOs on the west coast of the United States.

Quantum physicist makes impressive predictions about UFOs

Prasad, vice president of technology at UAP Expedition Group and CEO of ReactiveQ, expects big things to happen in the next 5 to 10 years. The synopsis of what he is trying to do appears on the site Medium.com.

He predicts that “we will discover that we are not alone in the universe.” But it goes beyond that. Before he even lists 10 points he intends to explore, he insinuates about an agenda to find out the truth he seeks:

If it turns out that a secret group of humans has surpassed every single country, military capability and private industry on the planet in an insurmountable leap, we will report.

His predictions suggest that he has a different understanding of what extraterrestrial life means, using the alien term “for lack of a better word.”

The website Mystery wire previously reported the emergence of UAP Expedition Group in the UFO research scenario. The composition of the group includes people who were on board the USS Princeton at the time of the Tic Tac UFO report, which was reported by New York Times in December 2017 and recognized as ‘real’ by the US Navy earlier this year. The Dave Fravor’s Navy Commander’s visual observation in 2004 off the coast near San Diego sparked interest in understanding UFOs.

The group told the vice.com that aims to exploit technology to revolutionize travel.

The website punkrockandufos.com interviewed Prasad in June. He explained his interest in the topic then. The article states:

The young innovation star is also an avid UFO advocate; He is one of us.

Below are the impressive predictions of quantum physicist Deep Prasad, followed by a video of his interview on the channel. Townhall media:

  1. We will find that we are not alone in the universe.
  2. This will become a familiar fact sometime in the next 5 to 10 years. Some will naturally debate this, no matter how much science and evidence is presented. After all, we still have people who believe in Terra Plana to this day.
  3. We will find that the engineers of these advanced technologies are not human, but they are NOT extraterrestrial as we define them.
  4. We will find that words like extraterrestrial, ultra-terrestrial, and interdimensional are inaccurate descriptions of what the beings behind these UFOs really are. From what I have seen in terms of data, it seems that the answer will be complicated, if not totally impossible to fully understand with our current knowledge of physics and philosophy.
  5. We will find that an unfortunate amount of human mythology and folklore is the result of intelligent nonhumans messing with holographic technology for some unknown reason.
  6. Let’s find out much, much more about ourselves, who and what we really are.
  7. Such revelations will shock virtually every living sentient person. Depress some while releasing others (I would bet more…).
  8. Finally, there will be communication between human civilization and alien civilization, for lack of a better word, once enough humans are psychologically ready for the first contact.
  9. UFOs will be formally recognized as a valid doctoral and masters topic in the fields of Quantum Information, Quantum Gravity, Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy Physics, Sociology, History, Literature, Engineering and even Biology.
  10. Sometimes things we cannot change, end up changing us.
