Harvard Scientist Reveals A Plan To Listen For Aliens Wednesday Afternoon
Harvard Scientist Reveals A Plan To Listen For Aliens Wednesday Afternoon


After discovering a mysterious object hurtling through space, the world's largest telescope is tuning in at 3 p.m. EST. And the world will be listening.

Shh!! Put your phone on vibrate, close your office door and please be very quiet this Wednesday afternoon. At 3 p.m. EST, your silence is greatly appreciated. At that exact moment, some of the world's leading astronomers will attempt to listen for alien life.

Yes, you read that right.

It all began a few weeks ago when a University of Hawaii student sifting through telescopic data discovered a highly unusual asteroid in space. Shaped like an elongated cigar and hundreds of meters in length, it was seen hurtling past the sun at 196,000 mph. Scientists were baffled by it. It marked the first time ever that astronomers were able to study an asteroid that has entered our solar system from interstellar space.

Avi Loeb, an Israeli theoretical physicist, is the chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department. "When I first learned about it I started wondering whether it might be an artificially made probe which was sent by an alien civilization," Loeb told From The Grapevine, adding that it's "a very peculiar object indeed."



The object has a rapid escape trajectory and will soon no longer be visible, heading back into deep space. "We had to act quickly," explained team member Olivier Hainaut from the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany.

Loeb is the chairman of the Breakthrough Starshot Advisory Committee, a project funded by Russian philanthropist Yuri Milner with the goal of finding other planets and civilizations. Loeb met with Milner on the sidelines of the Breakthrough Prize celebrations last weekend in Palo Alto, Calif., and had an hour-long discussion about the asteroid, now dubbed 'Oumuamua. Milner suggested they try to listen in and attempt to hear alien communications coming from the mysterious floating object.
