For the past several years, scientists have been keeping a close eye on asteroids. According to authors of separate studies, some minerals found in these cosmic bodies can prove the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Scientists came to this conclusion back in the 1960s, when the minerals heideite and brezinaite were created in the laboratory.
They, according to scientists, could become excellent conductors of electricity.
However, despite the fact that, according to scientists, the materials created were completely artificial, after a while they began to be found in fragments of asteroids.
How they could form outside the laboratory remained a mystery to scientists. Needless to say, this state of affairs has led scientists into confusion.
However, there were those who suggested that the new discovery could indicate the existence of an advanced civilization in deep space, which actively used unique materials for its travels.
And years later, these materials reached our planets already in the form of lifeless asteroids.
Now, six decades later, a Venezuelan researcher is trying to connect the dots between the minerals those scientists made in labs and the same minerals that came to Earth from space.
Maybe, just maybe, those superconducting minerals that came from space are also artificial, hypothesized BP Embaid, a physicist at the Central University of Venezuela, in a study, not yet peer-reviewed, that appeared online on March 13. September.
And if that’s the case, the minerals could be evidence of extraterrestrial technology, “tech signatures,” as scientists like to say.
“It is important to be open-minded and even provocative to consider the following question: are these meteoritic minerals samples of extraterrestrial technological signatures?” Embaid wrote.
Scientists largely agree that we should look more broadly, with more open minds, for signs of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Embaid thinks brezinaite and heideite are so rare, with their unique formulations and layers, that there’s a good chance they’ll always be made.
It’s a good possibility, that is, that all the brezinaite and heideite in the galaxy came from laboratories, either our laboratories or the laboratories of some alien civilization.
“The genesis of these meteoritic minerals might require [a] sophisticated, controlled process not readily found in nature,” Embaid wrote.
If it is the case that brezinaite and heideite are exclusively synthetic, the implication is clear. Any meteorite we find that contains brezinaite or heideite is not a naturally occurring space rock.
It’s a piece of alien technology, specifically, “abandoned technology,” according to Embaid. Remains of spacecraft or probes long gone.
