A new online video purported to have been released by hackers collective Anonymous claims that NASA could soon make a big announcement confirming that intelligent alien life exists elsewhere in the Universe. Be skeptical, though! Claims like these often mean nothing and usually lead us nowhere.
The video claims that in a recently held meeting of the United States Science, Space, and Technology Committee, a NASA representative said that the existence of extraterrestrial life may soon be proven with evidence.
In the congressional hearing held in April this year, the US space agency’s head of Science Mission Directorate Thomas Zubuchen said that they were on the verge of making one of the most revolutionary discoveries of all time — that alien life exists elsewhere in the Universe and the Earth is not an anomaly.
Zurbuchen reportedly outlined breakthroughs such as promising observations made by the Hubble space telescope of Jupiter’s moon Europra, adding that scientists are convinced that these worlds have the potential to host life.
However, the video by Anonymous goes a step further and assumes that mankind has already made contact with intelligent alien beings from extraterrestrial worlds.
“There are many who claim that unofficially, mankind has already made contact with aliens and not just little micro-organisms floating around inside a massive alien ocean, but advanced space-faring civilizations,” the video said. [Watch the full video below.]
Once again, such claims surrounding the speculative existence of intelligent alien life are nothing new, and as usual, the scientific community has by and large refrained from reacting to the new video. While Anonymous does enjoy some amount of credibility in a sizeable chunk of the internet population, it made similar claims about aliens and UFO sightings in the past that so far hasn’t led us anywhere. So we urge readers to take this new info with a pinch of salt.
