The “Galileo Project” includes researchers from Harvard, Princeton or Cambridge. It provides for the establishment of a worldwide network of medium-sized telescopes, cameras, cameras and computers to investigate UFOs.
An international research team led by an astronomer from the American Harvard University announced a new initiative Monday (July 26) to search for evidence of extraterrestrial technologies. The “Galileo Project”, which provides a worldwide network of medium-sized telescopes, cameras, cameras and computers to search for unidentified flying objects (UFOs), has already received $1.75 million in private funding. The project includes researchers from Harvard, Princeton and Caltech universities in the United States, as well as from Cambridge, England and Stockholm University.
Given the recent research showing the existence of many Earth-like planets in our galaxy, “We can no longer ignore the possibility that technological civilizations existed before us”prof. Avi Loeb said at a press conference. “The impact of any discovery of extraterrestrial technology on our science, our technology, and our understanding of the world as a whole will be enormous.”, he added in a statement.
It is not the politicians or the military who have to interpret what we see in the sky, because they are not scientists. The scientific community needs to understand. “

The announcement comes a month after the Pentagon released a UFO report that concluded that dozens of weather events seen by military pilots could not be explained. “It is not the politicians or the military who have to interpret what we see in the sky, because they are not scientists. It is up to the scientific community to understand”, Professor Loeb, who hopes to increase funding for his project by an estimated tenfold.
In addition to UFOs, Project Galileo aims to study interstellar objects passing through our solar system and search for possible extraterrestrial satellites to observe Earth. Avi Loeb sees a new branch of astronomy in him, baptized “Space archeology”It complements the SETI extraterrestrial intelligence research project, which aims to detect radio signals of extraterrestrial origin. The 59-year-old Israeli-American researcher, who has published hundreds of groundbreaking reports and collaborated with the late Stephen Hawking, is the author of a controversial scientific paper suggesting that an interstellar body may have come to Earth that briefly passed through our system in 2017. It could be a solar-powered alien probe.
The new project takes its name from Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, who was punished in the 17th century for showing that the Earth is not at the center of the universe. Frank Laukien, co-founder of the project, a researcher at the Harvard School of Chemistry and Biology, “Service skeptical”. But instead of rejecting ideas in advance, “Independently record and interpret data according to scientific methods”, he noted.
