10% of Avi Loeb’s mysterious spheres are made of extraterrestrial alloy

The story continues with mysterious tiny spheres that Harvard physicist Avi Loeb retrieved from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean last year.

In 2014, a meteorite fell into the Pacific Ocean (now known as IM1), moving at an unusually high speed. According to experts, this indicated that it came from somewhere far away, most likely beyond the limits of the Solar System.

In 2023, Harvard physicist Avi Loeb, known for his fascination with UFOs, assembled a team of researchers to study the ocean floor at the site where this meteorite fell and discovered hundreds of tiny spheres.

Loeb hastily claimed that these spheres were “parts of an alien probe” and that they had a very strange composition, including a significant presence of three elements – beryllium, lanthanum, and uranium.

Critics responded accordingly, stating that these were not “alien parts” at all, but rather some debris that ended up on the ocean floor from some ship. Among the skeptics were other scientists, including physicists similar to Loeb. Among them, the prevailing opinion was often that it was something like coal soot.

However, Loeb recently published a new study, stating that about 10% of the discovered spheres contain “alien elements not found in our Solar System.”

The study was conducted by Loeb’s team, led by him. They examined about 850 found spheres and found in 10% what they termed “BeLaU” – a new class of differentiated elemental composition.

“BeLaU” contains beryllium, lanthanum, and uranium, which are found on Earth, but in the spheres, they are present in an alloy form that is not found on our planet.

“We examined more than a dozen spheres with ‘BeLaU’ and found that they distinctly differ from coal soot based on the content of 55 elements from the periodic table of Mendeleev. Without any reasonable doubt, this excludes the interpretation of coal soot proposed by four individuals,” Loeb said.

The spheres were thoroughly analyzed in three laboratories: the University of California, Berkeley, Bruker Corporation, and Harvard University. According to the study’s results, they were first divided into three groups: spheres rich in silicon (S-type), spheres rich in iron (Fe-type), and glassy spheres (G-type).

Then a much smaller group with elevated levels of silicon, magnesium, and aluminum was selected. Out of 850 spheres, 22% of them met this criteria. Then they sorted samples with elevated levels of beryllium, lanthanum, and uranium, and they accounted for 10%.

According to Loeb, it seems that these fragments formed from material detached from a solid object, resembling a stone, but their chemical composition does not resemble any of the known materials in the Solar System.

“The elemental composition of ‘BeLaU’ spheres has never been published in the scientific literature and differs from the elements of known meteorites arriving from the Solar System.

The content structure does not resemble natural materials on Earth, the Moon, Mars, or asteroids of the Solar System and differs in the increased content of certain elements by a thousand times compared to the original composition of Solar System materials.

We interpret this as originating from beyond the Solar System. Thus, this is the first recognized interstellar meteorite,” Loeb says.

For many years, Loeb has argued that extraterrestrial intelligence may have visited Earth. When in 2017 an interstellar object, Oumuamua, passed through our Solar System, most scientists considered it simply an unusual asteroid or comet, but Loeb stated that it could have been an alien spacecraft.
