    The world stands on the brink of obtaining scientific proof aliens exist, according to a top boffin.

    Within a month, astrophysicist Avi Loeb expects to have the results of tests on fragments of a meteor that plunged to Earth in 2014 which he suspects may have actually been an extraterrestrial spaceship.

    His team used a magnetic sled to recover 750 marble-sized molten droplets from the seabed off Manus Island 260 miles from Papua New Guinea where the object exploded into a fireball above the Pacific Ocean.

    Avi told the Daily Star they are now being analysed in four laboratories across the world to determine if they hail from technology unknown to mankind – and travelled from outside the Solar System.

    Early indications are the globules are anomalous and stronger than any space rock known to man.

    It could be the first scientific evidence an interstellar spacecraft manufactured by ETs has landed on Earth.

    Avi, 61, director of the Institute for Theory and Computation within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said it would 'definitely' be man’s 'first contact' with aliens.

    "There is a chance that it’s artificial – that it’s a spacecraft," he said.

    "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."

    The kitchen sink-sized meteor – named IM1 – was detected by American spy satellites when it entered the Earth’s atmosphere on January 8 2014.

    It withstood four times the pressure that would typically destroy an ordinary iron-metal meteor as it hurtled through Earth’s atmosphere at 100,215mph.

    "This meteor was special in the sense that it was very fast," said Avi.

    "It was moving faster than 95% 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.’’

    Avi was able to narrow the estimated point at which it hit the water using seismograph readings and spent two weeks trawling a 6.2 square mile stretch of the seabed in a £1.2million operation.

    The recovered metallic beads – measuring up to 0.7mm in diameter – are being analysed in Germany, Papua New Guinea and at two top university’s in the US.

    "We are now analysing those materials," Avi 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."

    The revelation comes a week after defence department whistleblower David Grusch told US Congress 40 eyewitnesses had told him the American government was in possession of wreckage reovered from crashed alien spacecraft.

    He claimed the US Government had secretly tried to reverse engineer the technology to give it a lead in the global arms race and 'biologics' from 'non-human' ETs had also been recovered.

    Avi expects it will take US Congress a year to probe Grusch's claims.

    But he said his expedition may have prompted the former National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency staffer to speak out.

    "The David Grusch story came out a week before we went on an expedition to retrieve materials," Avi said.

    "Maybe it was a complete coincidence. Maybe not. I don’t know.

    "But the point is I think people do get courage after seeing others speak about it."
