ALIEN ‘MOTHER SHIP’ MAY BE WATCHING US WITH PROBES, RESEARCHERS SUGGEST
Avi Loeb and Sean M. Kirkpatrick discuss the possibility of such a scenario in their recent UFO article.
Titled ‘Physical Constraints on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’, the paper, which is still undergoing peer review, examines the alleged movements and capabilities of unexplained objects sighted by US Navy pilots off the coast of the United States.
Its authors are certainly no strangers to UFOs; Loeb is an astrophysicist who has been heavily involved in the search for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence, while Dr. Kirkpatrick is the director of the Pentagon’s Office of All-Domain Anomaly Resolution (AARO).
In an earlier story about the article, we reported that they concluded that the alleged capabilities of “highly maneuverable” objects detected by US Navy pilots are so extreme that the simple friction involved should have produced a visible fireball as well as a signature. corresponding radio. that could be picked up on radar.
Now it appears the pair are also looking into the idea that an extraterrestrial mothership passing through our solar system could have launched a series of smaller probes designed to enter Earth’s atmosphere and study us without our knowledge.
“[Interstellar meteorite impacts inspired me] to consider the possibility that an artificial interstellar object could be a mother ship that releases many small probes during its near-Earth pass, an operational construct not unlike NASA missions,” Loeb told Live Science
“These ‘dandelion seeds’… can be separated from the mother ship by the gravitational pull of the Sun’s tides or by an ability to maneuver.”
In the article, Loeb and Kirkpatrick suggest that these probes could reach Earth and enter our atmosphere undetected by astronomers.
It is also possible, given the amount of time it would take to traverse vast distances through space, that the civilization from which the mothership originated no longer exists.
