Scientist claims he'll be able to tell the world if aliens exist this month

Scientific proof of the existence of aliens could be coming out before the end of the month, a world-renowned scientist has said.
Anyway, astrophysicist Avi Loeb is waiting on the extraterrestrial fragmentation results of a meteor - named IM1 - which came crashing down to Earth on 8 January 2014.
The unidentified object exploded into a fireball above the Pacific Ocean and the Harvard Professor says his team have collected 750 molten droplet samples from the seabed off Manus Island, 260 miles from Papua New Guinea.
The samples that could quite possibly be from out of this world are being studied in four laboratories around the world.
Loeb, 61, who is director of the Institute for Theory and Computation within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, told the Daily Star: "There is a chance that it’s artificial – that it’s a spacecraft.
"That’s why we went there because the material strength of this meteor and the speed were unusual, were anomalies, were outliers relative to the rocks that we are familiar with.
"Whether it is or not will depend on what we find."
IM1 crashed through Earth’s atmosphere at 100,215mph and Loeb has called it 'special'.
"This meteor was special in the sense that it was very fast," he said.
"It was moving faster than 95 percent of the nearby stars near the Sun because of some propulsion it had.
"It was also made of some very tough material. Its material strength was tougher than all the 272 space rocks in the NASA catalogue over the past decades.
"That raised the possibility that it may be of some artificial alloy."
After a two-week operation, costing £1.2 million, the location for the crash-point was discovered.
Scientists were then able to dissect 0.7mm metallic beads that are now being looked at by four universities.
"We are now analysing those materials," Loeb said.
"We are in the process of finding out – within a month or so – what this meteor was made of and whether it is perhaps technological in origin or not.
"If it’s something like the Voyager spacecraft colliding with the planet that would appear as a meteor.
"We will find out.
"I am expecting further news within a month.
"That’s the hope."
This comes after claims made by a former Air Force intelligence officer who told US Congress that aliens are real and so are UFOs.
The US government are allegedly, of course, in possession of UFOs and non-human bodies, retired Major David Grusch testified under oath on 26 July.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.
