In a highly anticipated media briefing held on Thursday, September 14, NASA revealed the outcomes of its exhaustive year-long study on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), commonly referred to as UFOs. This research aimed to illuminate the mysteries surrounding these enigmatic occurrences while establishing a solid scientific framework for their comprehension.
However, the briefing took an unexpected twist when questions emerged regarding two allegedly “non-human” corpses, encased in glass displays, presented at an official unveiling within Mexico’s Congress. This revelation sent ripples of excitement throughout the UFO enthusiast community.
Said to have been unearthed in Cusco, Peru, these mummified specimens were estimated to be around 1,000 years old. David Spergel, the chair of NASA’s UAP study, addressed the matter, admitting that he had only come across reports about these specimens on social media and possessed limited information about their true nature. “We don’t know the nature of those samples,” he remarked.
Spergel implored the Mexican government to make the specimens accessible to the global scientific community, underscoring the significance of data-driven investigations. Dan Evans, an assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the need to shift from conjecture and conspiracy theories toward scientific inquiry. He asserted, “One of the main things we’re trying to do here today is to move conjecture and conspiracy towards science and sanity, and you do that with data.”
Notably, the day before the NASA briefing, journalist and prominent UFO researcher, Jaime Maussan, testified under oath during an event in Mexico City. Maussan made bold claims that nearly one-third of the DNA in these specimens was “unknown” and that they did not fit into the framework of “our terrestrial evolution,” according to Mexican media reports. He asserted, “These specimens are not part of our evolutionary history on Earth,” adding that they were not beings recovered from a UFO crash but had been found in diatom (algae) mines and subsequently fossilized.
It is worth highlighting that Maussan’s credibility has been challenged previously. In 2015, he claimed to have discovered a mummified body, supposedly of an alien, near Nazca in Peru, only for it to later be debunked as a human child.
Regarding the recent discovery, Maussan contended that scientists from the Autonomous National University of Mexico had conducted examinations of the specimens. He asserted that radiocarbon dating had been employed to gather DNA evidence and that X-rays had revealed the presence of “eggs” within one of the specimens.
The revelation left members of the Mexican Congress with mixed feelings. Some expressed “thoughts” and “concerns” about the discovery, indicating a desire to “continue talking about this.”Adding intrigue to the NASA event was the presence of Ryan Graves, a former U.S. Navy pilot, who had previously claimed that the number of UFOs or UAPs (unidentified anomalous phenomena) was being “grossly underreported.” His participation further fueled curiosity surrounding NASA’s revelations on Thursday.
