On Monday, July 26, an international team of researchers led by an astronomer from Harvard University announced a new initiative to search for evidence of extraterrestrial technologies. This initiative, titled “Project Galileo” and which provides for the creation of a global network of telescopes, cameras, cameras and medium-sized computers to investigate unidentified flying objects (UFOs), has already received $1.75 million in private funding. The project includes researchers from Harvard, Princeton and Caltech in the US, as well as the University of Cambridge in the UK and Stockholm University.
Considering recent research showing the presence of many Earth-like planets in our galaxy, “We can no longer ignore the possibility that technological civilizations existed before our own.”Professor Avi Loeb said during a press conference. “The impact that any discovery of extraterrestrial technology could have on science, our technology, and our perception of the world as a whole, would be enormous.”added in a statement.
It is not the politicians or the military who have to explain what we see in the sky, because they are not scientists. The scientific community has to understand. “

The announcement comes a month after the Pentagon released a UFO report, which concluded that the dozens of weather phenomena seen by military pilots could not be explained. It is not the politicians or the military who have to explain 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 tenfold, estimates.
In addition to UFOs, the Galileo project aims to study interstellar objects passing through our solar system, and search for potential extraterrestrial satellites that observe Earth. Avi Loeb sees in it a new branch of astronomy called “Space Archeology”, a complement to the SETI Research Extraterrestrial Intelligence Project, which seeks to detect radio signals from beyond Earth. The 59-year-old Israeli-American researcher, who published hundreds of groundbreaking reports and collaborated with the late Stephen Hawking, is the author of a controversial science article suggesting that an interstellar object that briefly passed through our system in 2017 could be a solar-powered space probe.
The new project is named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, who was punished in the 17th century for proving that the Earth was not at the center of the universe. Project co-founder Frank Lucian, a researcher at Harvard University’s School of Chemistry and Biology, introduced himself as “skeptical of service”.
