The chair of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard University, Abraham (Avi) Loeb will present his latest research prior to its official publication. Loeb will speak about the first evidence for an extraterrestrial technology that may have just passed by the earth a year ago. Speaking at the Falling Walls Conference on 9 November – the day of the fall of the Berlin Wall – he will present the results of his study publicly for the first time.

The paper, which will be published on 12 November in “The Astrophysical Journal Letters”, presents Loeb’s findings which indicate why the object Oumuamua, which was first spotted a year ago, could be an extraterrestrial technology.
