The Pentagon finally declassified its long-awaited report on unidentified flying objects this month (UFOs, which are now called UAP). There was nothing conclusive regarding the origin of those devices that can travel at great speeds by water and land until now, when prominent astronomer Avi Loeb proposed a theory that could relate them to the enigmatic Oumuamua.
The Oumuamua is an unidentified object that has been observed by ground-based observatories as it travels through our solar system. Experts believe it could be an alien technology or ship based on its shape and trajectory.
Loeb released a fresh theory that relates the Oumuamua to the objects identified in 2019 by US military ships shortly before the exact content of the Pentagon report (which had been leaking to the public in the previous weeks).
Loeb speculates in a Scientific American article that the Oumuamua could be a type of receiver that sails through our solar system gathering data obtained by a series of probes put on Earth and surrounding planets by alien civilizations many years ago.
“One can imagine that Oumuamua may have been gathering data from probes that were previously deployed on Earth,” says Loeb. “In such situation, the Oumuamua’s elongated and flat shape corresponds to that of a receiver.”
The Pentagon-studied UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, for its English abbreviation) would thus be part of that army of devices dispatched to Earth with the aim of gathering data about our planet. “Galactic parking” is similar to what humans do when sending probes to Mars and other planets in the system.
As a result, the Oumuamua has that odd flat disk shape, which causes the Sun to push it through the system as if it were a solar sail.
However, the scientist has urged for a more in-depth investigation of the UAPs found by the Pentagon, as well as the installation of more telescopes and recording devices in the areas where they have been observed. “Scientists could solve the enigma by a transparent review of publicly available data.”
Loeb clarifies that he dislikes science fiction but hopes that “science will one day unveil a reality that was previously only deemed fiction.”
