Over the past two decades, astronomers have discovered, through ground and space-based astronomical observatories, a large number of planets revolving around stars in the galaxy, i.e. outside the solar system. According to these observations and analyzes, astronomers expect that there are more than a billion planets revolving around stars in our Milky Way galaxy similar to Earth And there are seas, oceans, blue skies and creatures that may be at the level of human intelligence and perhaps more developed than humans on Earth, and perhaps these civilizations still live in caves and forests like the first human on Earth.
Since the 1960s, a large number of astronomers have established huge projects in order to try to communicate with these intelligent civilizations in our Milky Way galaxy, by placing messages on a CD in spacecraft that crossed the boundaries of the solar system years ago, and these CDs bear aspects of life Humans on the planet such as the sound of planes, trains and pedestrians, some musical symphonies and verses of poetry from all languages of the world, including the Arabic language, in addition to verses from the Holy Qur’an that have meanings about astronomy.
On October 19, 2017, astronomers discovered an eccentric celestial body located on the outer limits of the solar system called Oumuamua, as it comes from outside the solar system, that is, from interstellar space, specifically from the constellation Lyra or the real eagle seen in In the middle of the sky in the summer, and by observing the movement of Oumuamua, it was found that it is longitudinal and elongated and reaches hundreds of meters in length and is not spherical or even semi-spherical like the car planets, asteroids and dwarf planets in the solar system, and it moves in space without being affected by the sun with its gravity, and this increases confidence. He is a visitor from outer space.
These details about the new visitor from outside the solar system, and does not resemble celestial bodies in shape and orbit, and is not affected by the gravity of the sun, has led many astronomers to believe that Oumuamua may be a spacecraft sent by one of the intelligent civilizations in the galaxy to meet and identify humans.
One of the scientists who believe that this guest orb is a spacecraft coming from intelligent creatures is Professor of Astronomy at Harvard University (Avi Loeb), who believes that it is a spacecraft that has a space sail to guide the spacecraft in space, explaining that the movement of the strange orb is unaffected The gravity of the sun is a sign that it is a spacecraft, as it does not surround the object with a halo or a tail of gas, as happens in comets and asteroids.
It is still too early to confirm the truth and nature of the Oumuamua guest galaxy, which is now on its way towards Earth and the nearby solar planets, and science must be able to learn more about the truth of this guest.
In any case, we humans, the inhabitants of the Earth, are not alone in the galaxy for the most part, but there are a large number of creatures that live on planets revolving around the stars, and these intelligent civilizations that preceded us for centuries in scientific and technological development may visit us at any moment, not just to get to know us. Rather, it may help us in developing solutions to our economic and political problems, prevent superpowers from invading developing countries, and guide us in exploiting our natural resources, confronting climate change, and other negative matters in human life on the planet. !!
