A recently published secret government document assures that an interstellar object on the ground entered the Solar System in 2014, as it crashed into the Earth and its remains in the Pacific.
Interstellar object crashed in the Pacific: United States Space Force confirmed. Why is the government responsible for keeping it hidden that an interstellar object has crashed on Earth? No official media has given an answer to this question. The success was revealed by the portal Vice to astrophysics student and director of Interstellar Object Studies in the Galileo Project at Harvard, Amir Siraj.
The incident of the interstellar object
Siraj, together with Avi Loeb, wrote an article explaining that an interstellar object fell into the Pacific. But the news is kept secret. Apparently, the team carefully examined the database of space rocks and meteorite impacts of the Centro de Estudios de Objetos Cercanos a la Tierra de la NASA, the CNEOS by its abbreviations in English.
While looking for anomalies, they found an immense ball of fire that exploded near Manus Island, in the north of Papua Nueva Guinea, on the 8th of January 2014.
The speed was more than 200,000 kilometers per hour and the duo identified it as a “small space rock” measuring 0.45 meters in diameter. Its origin could be the deep interior of the Solar System or a star in the large disk of the Milky Way galaxy. Siraj believes that some of the sensors used by CNEOS are operated by the US Department of Defense to detect nuclear detonations. Without key data on the margin of error of the speed of the fireball, both scientific in the pasaron of the peer review and publishing the article. But it changed when his request for data was sent to Joel Mozer, scientific head of the Space Operations Command in the Space Force service component.
The most surprising thing is that Siraj and Loeb learned that they had permission through a tweet from the Space Force. In the message, a memorandum is shown closed on the 1st of March and signed by Lieutenant General John E. Shaw, deputy commander of the Space Force.
Al enterarse, Siraj and Loeb resumed the search to publish the article so that other expert investigators can search for another interstellar object.
Siraj will also ask astronomers to build a public network of meteorite sensors independent of the Department of Defense. Thus, the delays are eliminated as el de su investigation. He also plans to organize an expedition to the place where the interstellar object landed:
It would be very ambitious, but let’s analyze it in depth. Because the possibility of obtaining the first piece of interstellar material is exciting enough to verify that they are very much in the background. And speak with all the world experts on oceanic expeditions to recover meteorites.
Many people hope that, this time, the Space Force does not impede the investigation, and that there are no questions about why this information was hidden.
