Pentagon report explores possibility of alien ship visits
By Alexandra Limon,
WASHINGTON (Nexstar) – A new government report is raising eyebrows across the country — especially among anyone interested in extraterrestrial — as physicist and Harvard professor Abraham "Avi" Loeb says there’s a possibility humans aren’t the only civilization in the universe.
"Whether we live in such a reality or not is not a philosophical question, we just have to look out," Loeb said.
Loeb teamed up with the Pentagon office that investigates unidentified aerial phenomena, and they came up with a draft report that says it’s possible alien ships have already visited our solar system.
Loeb says if Oumuamua was a ship, there likely wasn’t life on it. Instead, he believes it could have been operated by an artificial intelligence system "that stays dormant for that period and just gets activated when it comes close to its target."
Professor Loeb has dedicated his career to exploring the possibility that extraterrestrial civilizations exist and has written several books on the topic. He received a Ph.D. in plasma physics when he was 24 years old.
