More than 500 large and small meteorites fall on our planet every year. 90% of these meteorites, most of which are in the Solar System , fall into the oceans. Finding and examining meteorite fragments that collapsed to the deep ocean floor after the impact becomes nearly impossible. Harvard Professor Avi Loeb , who has been studying a meteor strike from outside the Solar System in 2014 for a while , wants to remove this meteor on the grounds that it has great mysteries.
Known as one of the most experienced and respected astrophysicists at Harvard University , Avi Loeb also served as the Science and Technology Advisor to the White House for a term . For some time, he and his students were investigating a mysterious meteorite that fell in 2014. According to an article published by his student Amir Siraj in 2019 , in order for the meteorite that fell to Earth to survive such a grueling journey, it must consist of materials harder than iron . This brought the suspicion of alien relics to many people’s minds.
Meteor Remains Will Be Collected From The Ocean With Magnets
Avi Loeb, who stated that he wanted to bring the remains of the ocean floor to the surface last year, started working. In the process, the 10-kilometer -long area where meteor fragments may be scattered will be scanned with magnets. The collected pieces will then be taken to the laboratory for further examination.
So why are there claims of alien remains about the meteor? For the first time in 2019, it was determined that the meteor may have come from outside the Solar System. The US Space Force also confirmed the researchers’ work. It was recorded that the meteor followed an elliptical and unusual route before hitting the earth. In addition, one of the people who discovered the meteor, Amir Siraj, stated that the contents of the meteor have substances that are harder than iron. When all this comes together, the possibility of an alien accident straight out of science fiction movies comes to mind. On the other hand, it is thought that the strange route followed by the meteor named CNEOS 2014-01-08 may prove the 9th planet theory, which has not been discovered until now, but has only been mathematically put forward against some gravitational problems .
