A professor from the prestigious Harvard University believes that the meteorite fragments discovered in the Pacific Ocean are the result of extraterrestrial technology.

This space junk fell into the ocean in 2014 when a fireball shot across the sky over Papua New Guinea, sending it on its way.
A nearby US government radar measured its speed at more than 177,000 km/h and even NASA spotted its fall.
The meteorite hit the ocean about 85 kilometers offshore.

Harvard astrophysicist Avi Loeb believes the debris contains alien technology from another galaxy.
He said in an interview with The Daily Beast that he believes the object, dubbed Interstellar Meteor 1 (IM1), could contain extraterrestrial “technology fingerprints,” traces of technology created by non-human entities.
This is not the first time that Avi Loeb has made hypotheses that have divided the scientific community.
Five years ago, he and fellow Harvard researcher Shmuel Biale suggested that the strange interstellar object ‘Oumuamua, which passed through our solar system in late 2017, was an independent space probe resembling a sail.
Their paper on this thing garnered an outpouring of media attention, as well as backlash and praise from the broader scientific community.
Now, backed by funding from crypto-millionaire Charles Hoskinson, Loeb leads an expedition to the Pacific Ocean to recover the wreck.
The scientific team succeeded in recovering the magnetic balls. They are made of iron, magnesium and titanium, which could be pieces of meteorite.
in Another blog postLoeb described these spheres as “anomalous” likely due to their low content of nickel, a common element in meteorites.
However, many scientists have doubts about the origin of the balls. In fact, they say these balls may not be related to the 2014 fireball at all.

“It’s been known for a century that if you took a magnetic shovel and ran it across the ocean floor, it would rip off globules,” Peter Brown, a meteorite scientist at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, told LiveScience.
Such debris has accumulated around the world on the sea floor over millions of years from meteorites that dropped small pieces of molten metal as they passed. Taking into account the changing ocean currents and sedimentary motions, it would be basically impossible to say that this sphere originated from a specific event,” the expert believes.
The US defense confirmed on April 6, 2022 that the meteor that fell from Papua New Guinea came from another galaxy.
