A new report from a Pentagon researcher and a Harvard astronomer suggests an alien "mothership" might be sending UFOs to surveil Earth.
The draft study written by the Pentagon's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office Director Sean Kirkpatrick and the head of Harvard University's astronomy department Abraham Loeb sought to detail "physical constraints on unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAPs, the new name for unidentified flying objects).
The experts explored a scientific theory that the object Oumuamua might have been an extraterrestrial vessel that was the first interstellar object discovered traveling through our solar system in 2017, noting its "extreme flat shape" and its lack of a comet-like tail raise "the possibility that it was thin and artificial in origin."
The authors noted an interstellar meteor IM2 hit the Earth in 2017 and might have been a "dandelion seed" ahead of Oumuamua's closest approach to Earth.
"With proper design, these tiny probes would reach the Earth or other Solar system planets for exploration," according to the researchers. "Astronomers would not be able to notice the spray of mini-probes because they do not reflect enough sunlight for existing survey telescopes to notice them."
As novel as the theory is, it has a real impact on investigations of UAPs observed by the U.S. Navy, including former Navy F-18 pilot Ryan Graves.
"While I was in the Navy, myself and others in my squadron had an experience that continues to this day and, at first, was something that we didn't have a name for," Graves said, the New York Post reported.
Graves said the objects were merely "contacts on our radar, contacts on our camera system" until eventually "we were seeing these with our eyeballs."
Graves wants an explanation, especially amid extraordinarily explanations.
"I think they need to separate the idea of something that's unknown," Graves said, from "UFO or ET hypothesis."
"We need to be able to agnostically, as a media, accept that there is uncertainty and look at it from a first principles approach," he continued. "Because if we wrap it into all that context about little green men, we're going to be barking up the wrong tree."
The unknowns studied from space by the Pentagon and Harvard experts have a similar curiosity, noting the observations and speeds are otherworldly, as they can only speculate how parachute-like probes "slow down in the Earth's atmosphere to avoid burnup and then pursue their objectives wherever they land."
Harvard's Galileo Project hopes to recover 2014 interstellar meteor from the Pacific Ocean floor "in the coming year," according to American Military News.
That can help study "whether its extraordinary material strength resulted from it being made out of an artificial alloy, like stainless steel or materials not yet developed by humans."
