The mission is being led by Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb, who said that the group has discovered a few unusual items.
Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano, is currently looking for a UFO or other space object that may have landed in the Pacific Ocean close to the coast of Papua New Guinea.
The investigation is a part of the Galileo Project, which in March got money from Hoskinson totaling $1.5 million.
Amir Siraj and Avi Loeb of Harvard University are leading an expedition for the project that aims to find a “meteor of interstellar origin” that struck Earth in 2014.
Notably, the U.S. Department of Defence has confirmed the object’s interplanetary origin, and it appears that the Galileo team may have already discovered a few of its fragments.
Hoskinson tweeted on June 16 to confirm he is with the expedition team and to report that so far they have discovered unusual wire fragments and other possible crash debris.
There is still a lot of area to cover, he remarked, adding that the sluice sledge hasn’t even been unpacked.
The following day, Loeb posted on his blog, saying: “Gladly, we already have one anomaly: a manganese-platinum wire with an abundance pattern that differs from common commercial products.”
But at this point, it seems too early to say whether the fragments come from the sort of “interstellar object from our cosmic neighbourhood” that Loeb hopes they do.
In a blog post published on June 15, he stated, “Most importantly, I wish to know whether it was technologically created by another civilization.”
Hoskinson has previously invested money in odd projects, so this is not a new occurrence.
The founder of Cardano took part in a $75 million investment round in March 2022 for the Texas-based bioscience business Colossal, which seeks to bring back woolly mammoths and other extinct animals.
