The Galileo Project lead, Professor Avi Loeb, world-renowned astrophysicist at Harvard University and best selling author of Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth spent years studying the skies for signs of extraterrestrial life and says he has found proof of their existence at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Professor Loeb just completed a $1.5m expedition searching for signs of a mysterious meteor dubbed IM1 (Interstellar Meteor 1) that crashed off the coast of Papua New Guinea in 2014 and is believed to have come from interstellar space.
Professor Loeb and his colleagues have discovered at least 50 tiny spherical iron fragments near the fireball path of the first recognized interstellar meteor, IM1. They discovered the 50 tiny spherules, or molten droplets, using a magnetic sled that was dropped from the expedition vessel the Silver Star 2km beneath the surface of the pacific ocean.
ePa Live had the opportunity to speak with Professor Loeb, a returning guest on the program, about his monumental findings that could answer the age old question: Are we alone?
