Evidence of the existence of aliens? Physicist reveals what kind of spheres scientists found in the Pacific Ocean

Spherules found by Loeb on the ocean floor under the microscope

The spheres found in 2023 at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, which could allegedly be fragments of an alien spacecraft, are actually of entirely terrestrial origin. But this is not a case of large-scale falsification.

This is stated in a study by University of Chicago physicist Patricio A. Gallardo, published in the journal Research Notes of the AAS. The sensational origin of the spheres was previously announced by eccentric Harvard physics professor Avi Loeb.

Loeb did extensive work and organized an expedition to find fragments of an interstellar (originating from outside the solar system) meteorite at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, which, in his opinion, had all the signs of being not an ordinary celestial body, but the product of an alien mind.

When the small, round spherules were brought to the surface and analyzed, Loeb again claimed their extraterrestrial origin. He said they contained elements that had "never been seen before" and that the spherules themselves might be the remains of an alien spacecraft.

Despite Loeb's respected status, his statement was immediately criticized for lack of conclusive evidence. However, this doesn't seem to matter much to the professor, as he has made equally sensational statements before, such as when he called the cigar-shaped comet Oumuamua a product of an alien civilization. Or when (together with a Pentagon official) he claimed that aliens in the solar system could launch probes to Earth.

Now it seems that Gallardo has decided to put an end to Loeb's fantastic stories. According to him, the spheres are of entirely terrestrial origin, and their contents indicate "pollution from terrestrial sources."

"The meteorite origin is not credible," Gallardo said.

According to him, Loeb's conclusions did not make enough comparisons with pollutants to reject the most obvious hypothesis of terrestrial contamination.

He explained that the spherules recovered from the ocean were rich in three elements - beryllium, lanthanum, and uranium. There was 500 times more lanthanum and uranium than in terrestrial rocks, and hundreds of times more beryllium.

It was because of the presence of beryllium that Loeb argued for the extraterrestrial origin of the spheres, since this element is formed as a result of a violent reaction (fission) involving high-energy cosmic rays.

However, Gallardo denies this version.

"The content of nickel, beryllium, lanthanum, and uranium was studied in the context of a known anthropogenic (human-made - Ed.) source of pollution, and it turned out to be consistent with the content in coal ash," the physicist explained.

He added that similar spheres were found during a naval expedition in the Gulf of Mexico in 1976. At that time, the analysis of the find also revealed similarities with coal ash, a waste product of coal combustion at power plants and steam engines.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA reported that scientists had tested the bodies of "1000-year-old aliens", which were presented to the public by an amateur ufologist from Mexico.
