Some of our questions about the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial civilizations could be answered by a new international research project led by Harvard University.
The Galileo Project, led by Harvard astronomy professor Avi Loeb, will search for a record of alien civilizations capable of technology surpassing what we know on Earth. It will use telescope observations, missions that send cameras into space and more..
“Given the recently discovered abundance of Earth-Sun systems, the Galileo Project is dedicated to the proposition that humans can no longer ignore the possible existence of Extraterrestrial Technological Civilizations (ETCs),” the team said in a statement.
The project comes on the heels of the government’s report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena and an interstellar object, Oumuamua, that entered our solar system in 2017 as reasons to search and confirm the presence of ETCs.

Loeb told USA TODAY that the idea for the project is that “in the future, we will find more objects from interstellar space, and those that look peculiar we should follow up by sending a camera on a space rocket that gets close to them and taking a close-up photograph.”
He added that the project will allow scientists to take a further look into unidentified objects in space after the government’s report was released last month.
