The Pentagon’s Alien Theory Shocks the Scientific Community
Experts questioned the credibility of the Pentagon’s UFO
investigatory office after its head co-authored a paper positing that
unidentified objects could be tools for aliens to research Earth,
according to Politico.
Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) leader Sean Kirkpatrick and Harvard
professor Avi Loeb wrote in a draft article from March 7 that
unidentified aerial phenomena could serve as “probes” from a “parent
craft” operated by extraterrestrial beings, which was first reported by
the Daily Caller.
While experts recognize Kirkpatrick as a capable
and intelligent scientist, some said Kirkpatrick’s willingness to
assign his name to a hypothetical that has little substantive evidence
supporting it could undermine AARO’s credibility, according to Politico.
a fine line because there’s ‘being open to speculative ideas’ like
this, but that can be translated into an actual supporting of this
possibility, and I think that’s where there needs to be more clarity,”
Alejandro Rojas, a board member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP
Studies, told the outlet. “It does look like [DoD is] supporting some
really wild ideas which thus far are felt to be unsubstantiated.”
has held senior positions in DoD, U.S. Space Command, the National
Security Council and various intelligence agencies and formerly served
as chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s missile and
space intelligence center, according to Politico.
David Jewitt, a
professor of astronomy at the University of California Los Angeles,
called some of the paper’s claims “highly questionable,” according to
In a section titled “The Extraterrestrial Possibility,”
Kirkpatrick and Loeb imagine a scenario where extraterrestrial beings
have equipped vehicles with advanced propulsion technology and

employing conventional chemical propulsion and refueling that we
currently understand, would be a likely choice for travel within a
planetary system,” the authors wrote. “Such autonomous systems could be
designed to survive even if the senders are not able to communicate with
them, and deposit probes upon arrival to the target planetary systems.”

behind the objects and their hypothetical super-fast propulsion systems,
as well as the signatures such objects would leave for earth-dwellers
to observe, the article shows.

that passes near Earth,” the article reads.

investigate reports of unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, some of
which appear to operate outside the bounds of known physics.

determined that most, if not all, UAP sightings describe everyday
objects or spying devices other countries have deployed. However,
officials do not rule out the possibility of alien life when asked,
according to Politico.

Alien space debris stuck in Earth’s orbit, researchers say
Recently, a group of experts from Harvard University, led by physics
professor Avi Loeb, announced the possible presence of alien space
debris in Earth’s orbit, reports the Daily Star.
space research expert Professor Loeb is confident that the discovery of
such “interstellar objects could help expand our knowledge of possible
alien civilizations and technologies. A team of scientists is conducting
research to confirm that some of the objects in our orbit may be
connected to other star systems.
During an interview with Live
Science, Professor Loeb explained that these objects could enter the
solar system from interstellar space, defying Jupiter’s gravitational
pull and occupying limited orbits around the sun.
Some of them may
have technological origins similar to the probes sent by mankind into
interstellar space, such as Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, Pioneer 10 and 11
and New Horizons.
despite these interesting assumptions, Professor Loeb did not specify
what specific objects he was talking about. In his research report, he
notes that there could be “a significant number” of potentially
detectable objects in Earth’s orbit.
To confirm their assumptions,
the team of scientists uses computer simulations and the Vera Rubin
Observatory (Chile) with a high-resolution camera of 3.2 billion pixels.
This will allow for regular observations of the Southern sky and the
possibility of detecting several captured objects about the size of a
It is assumed that these interstellar objects passed through the
boundaries of the solar system and may carry unique information about
other civilizations and their technologies. If we could confirm the
origin of these objects, the mysteries that open before us, this would
be a real breakthrough in space exploration.
expresses hope that the new research will not only help expand our
knowledge of extraterrestrial technologies, but may also lead to the
discovery of new alien civilizations . Answers to such questions can be
of global significance and influence our understanding of the place of
mankind in the Universe.
while there are still many questions and assumptions, the study by
Professor Loeb and his team opens a new chapter in space exploration.
Each new discovery can be the key to deciphering the mysteries of the
cosmos and the possibility of encountering alien life forms.
Betelgeuse is acting strange again
Betelgeuse, a red giant on the brink of death, continues to show
unusual behavior. After the Great Blackout, which occurred in late 2019
and early 2020, the star became unusually bright. It is now the seventh
brightest star in the sky, while it normally ranks tenth. This has led
to speculation that Betelgeuse is preparing to explode in a
spectacularly large supernova.
However, scientists believe it’s too early to tell, and it’s likely
that this behavior is due to ongoing fluctuations after the Great
Blackout of 2019, and the star will return to normal within a decade.
Betelgeuse is one of the most interesting stars in the sky. It is
about 700 light-years from Earth and is a red giant in the last stage of
its life. It is also an unusual star for a red giant because it was
previously a monster blue-white O-type star, the most massive class of
Betelgeuse has changed its spectral type because it has almost
exhausted its hydrogen reserves. It now burns helium into carbon and
oxygen and has expanded to a gigantic size: about 764 times the size of
the Sun and about 16.5 to 19 times its mass.
Eventually it will run out of fuel to burn, become a supernova, eject
its outer material, and its core will collapse into a neutron star.
Before the Great Blackout, Betelgeuse also had periodic fluctuations
in brightness. The longest of these cycles is about 5.9 years and the
other is 400 days. But it seems that the Great Blackout caused changes
in these oscillations.
A new paper by astrophysicist Morgan McLeod of the
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has shown that the 400-day
cycle appears to have been halved. This pulsational cycle is probably
caused by expansion and contraction within the star. According to
simulations carried out by MacLeod and his colleagues, the convective
flow inside Betelgeuse may have risen and become material that separates
from the star.
