Researchers say Bennu may have alien technology inside
Currently, the series of stellar objects traveling in space, sometimes making contact with Earth, is public knowledge. However, some asteroids or comets have fairly well-defined paths, so they can travel and return to Earth months or years after their last appearance. But isn\’t it possible that one of the asteroids was powered by a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ technology?
An interesting investigation
The Earth is at the mercy of countless bodies that travel and, the smallest, have contact with it. On the other hand, the big ones move away and return after completing their trajectory. It is for this reason that the possibility that some of these asteroids were used by other e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳s̳ is being considered.
Some of them may have been mined or used as a way to get rid of their waste. They may have tried to implement some technological modifications, among other similar aspects. It is for this reason that NASA recently sent the Osiris-Rex spacecraft to explore the surface of asteroid Bennu and excavate its interior. Something amazing.
an amazing asteroid
Said asteroid is known to measure approximately 500 meters in diameter and is rich in carbon. It is said that its formation changed 4000 years ago and that there are possibilities that there are organic and volatile molecules inside it, this could be a specific pillar for life on our planet. It is estimated to travel at 100,000 kilometers per hour, approaching Earth every six years.
It was chosen by NASA to be studied by the Osiris-Rex spacecraft due to its trajectory, as it is unlikely to collide with Earth. Also, the odds of life. This launch was carried out in 2016 and only in 2018 did the probe successfully reach its destination. Currently, studies of the asteroid\’s surface have begun and in 2020 they will start looking for samples inside.
an amazing strategy
The extraction of samples will be done thanks to a retractable arm. This will probe the surface by ejecting a jet of nitrogen gas so that it can pick up the regolith portions. Afterwards, the samples will be stored inside a Return capsule. These will be sent back to Earth in 2021 and their arrival is estimated in 2023. An amazing process to investigate this amazing asteroid.
