Many findings have earlier showed the signs of aliens. And recently to get even more closer to the existence of aliens, a new project ‘The Galileo Project‘ – named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei – lead by a group of scientists from Harvard University to find out whether aliens exist or not.
The research aims at the physical existence of alien intelligence rather than relying on electromagnetic signals from distant civilizations by using ground telescopes, AI, and more available techniques.
“Given the recently discovered abundance of Earth-Sun systems, 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.
Despite this Loeb pointed out that it is very difficult to avoid the possibility of other civilizations in the universe, also there are many chances that evidence of their existence can one day pass by us. Also, the project is going to follow the report from last month by the US government on many Unknown and Unidentified Aerial Phenomenas (UAPs) spotted by navy personnel and Oumuamua, which is basically an interstellar object having pancake shape entered earth in 2017.
Starting of Research
The first phase of The Galileo Project includes the setting up of a network of dozens of relatively small telescopes (each consisting of approximately two 25-centimeter (10in) telescopes with a camera, with a connection to the computer that filters out data) around the earth.
Along with three major avenues of research – first to understand the nature and obtain high-resolution images of UAP through multi-detector sensors, Second to search and conduct in-depth research on “Oumuamua-like” interstellar objects, and third to search for potential ETC satellites.
Laukien said, “It’s very important to keep in mind that the Galileo project is not for everything and not for everyone, having its own limitations and definite scope.” He also stated that the project basically looks for “exploring known physics explanations despite speculating on prior UAPs, alleged observations, and informal reports.”
Asking about, “when could we see new UAP images courtesy of the Galileo Project?” Loeb told Space.com that they are, “planning to get some interesting results in the coming year, hopefully.”
