An international team of astrophysicists has announced a new scientific project to search for evidence of potential astro-archeological artifacts or active technical equipment made by existing or extinct extraterrestrial technological civilizations (ETCs).

The Galileo Project, led by Harvard Professor Avi Loeb, aims to identify the nature of potential ETC objects using the standard scientific method based on a transparent analysis of open scientific data to be collected using optimized instruments.

“In 2017, the world for the first time observed an interstellar object, called ‘Oumuamua, that was briefly visiting our Solar System,” Professor Loeb said.

“Based on astronomical observations, ‘Oumuamua turned out to have highly anomalous properties that defy well-understood natural explanations.”

“We can only speculate whether ‘Oumuamua may be explained by never seen before natural explanations, or by stretching our imagination to ‘Oumuamua perhaps being an extraterrestrial technological object, similar to a very thin light-sail or communications dish, which would fit the astronomical data rather well.”

Will the Galileo Project find Extraterrestrial Technology?

ʻOumuamua is the first known interstellar object detected passing through the Solar System.

Formally designated 1I/2017 U1, it was discovered by Robert Weryk using the Pan-STARRS telescope at Haleakalā Observatory, Hawaii, on 19 October 2017, approximately 40 days after it passed its closest point to the Sun on 9 September.

When it was first observed, it was about 33 million km (21 million mi; 0.22 AU) from Earth (about 85 times as far away as the Moon), and already heading away from the Sun.

ʻOumuamua is a small object estimated to be between 100 and 1,000 metres (300 and 3,000 ft) long, with its width and thickness both estimated to range between 35 and 167 metres (115 and 548 ft). It has a red color, similar to objects in the outer Solar System.

ʻOumuamua's light curve, assuming little systematic error, presents its motion as "tumbling", rather than "spinning", and moving sufficiently fast relative to the Sun that it is likely of an extrasolar origin.

Extrapolated and without further deceleration, ʻOumuamua's path cannot be captured into a solar orbit, so it would eventually leave the Solar System and continue into interstellar space.

Oumuamua's planetary system of origin and the age of its excursion are unknown.

1I/ʻOumuamua, imaged with the 4.2 meter William Herschel Telescope in the Canary Islands on 28 October 2017, is seen as a stationary light source in the centre of the image.

Background stars appear streaked because the telescope is tracking the rapidly moving object.

In July 2019, astronomers concluded that ʻOumuamua is most likely a natural object.

A small number of astronomers suggested that ʻOumuamua could be a product of alien technology, but evidence in support of this hypothesis is weak.

In March 2021, scientists presented a theory based on nitrogen ice that ʻOumuamua may be a piece of an exoplanet similar to Pluto, from beyond our solar system.
