Galileo Project Scientists To Search For Signs Of Extraterrestrial Technology
A team of Scientists will embark on a new international research project following the report by the US Govt recently. The research for evidence of extraterrestrial life by looking for advanced technology it may leave behind. The team will work with the project founded by Astronomy Professor Avi Loeb of Harvard University.
The project named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei who is known for his pioneering use of telescopes, pledges to dare to look through new telescopes, both literally and figuratively. Prof. Loeb co-founded the project with Frank Laukien, CEO of Bruker Corporation, a Massachusetts-based manufacturer of scientific equipment.
The US Govt reports a number of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena that were reported by navy personnel and Oumuamua, an interstellar pancake-shaped object that entered the solar system in 2017. Oumuamua did not resemble any previously observed comet or asteroids and in turn sparked a debate among astronomers regarding its true origin.
"Rather than searching for electromagnetic signals, the Galileo Project will search for physical objects associated with extraterrestrial technological equipment, also known as techno signatures, referring to the project’s aim of only exploring known physics explanations rather than speculating on prior UAPs, alleged observations and informal reports ", Laukien said. 'We are planning to get some interesting results in the coming year, hopefully, Loeb said in a recent press conference.
The Galileo Project is dedicated to the proposition that humans can no longer ignore the possible existence of Extraterrestrial Technological Civilizations (ETCs),” the team announced in a statement.
