A presentation on Tuesday within the Mexican Congress has ignited fervent discussions each within the legislative halls and the digital corridors of social media. The burning query on everybody’s lips: Alien corpses? Actually? (Spoiler: very seemingly not.)
In a controversial session, researchers from numerous corners of the globe congregated in Mexico Metropolis to current what might doubtlessly be earth-shattering proof of extraterrestrial existence. Journalist and self-described ufologist José Jaime Maussan, a central determine on this unfolding drama, unveiled supposed mummies unearthed from the sandy terrains of Peru, which he and others consider are “non-human beings that aren’t a part of our terrestrial evolution.”
However don’t roll your eyes simply but, this isn’t The Roswell Weekly. He additionally says his declare is backed by scientific analysis. In accordance with Maussan, UNAM, Mexico’s most prestigious college, carbon dated the corpses, and concluded that they’re certainly historical creatures over a thousand years outdated.
UNAM printed a assertion on Wednesday confirming that it certainly analyzed tissue samples and dated them. Whether or not the our bodies are from this planet or one other is past its scope of research, the college mentioned.
“In Could 2017, the LEMA (Carbon-14 Relationship Laboratory) carried out a Carbon-14 courting research on a set of samples supplied by the shopper, which, based on the knowledge supplied, consisted of roughly 0.5 grams of pores and skin and mind tissue. The outcomes of this research had been issued in June of the identical 12 months and delivered to the requesting person,” mentioned college researchers.
“The Carbon-14 courting work carried out on the LEMA is solely supposed to find out the age of the pattern introduced by every person, and not at all can we draw conclusions concerning the origin of those samples,” they concluded.
Representatives for UNAM didn’t instantly reply to Decrypt’s request for added feedback.
Additionally current at Tuesday’s listening to in Mexico Metropolis was American for Protected Aerospace Government Director Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot who additionally testified earlier than the U.S. Congress in July on associated issues. For those who’ve been following these things, this listening to nicely—it’s the one which launched the world to the phrase “non-human biologics,’ uttered by retired Air Drive main David Grusch, who claims the U.S. authorities has recovered such materials from supposed UFO crash websites.

Graves, the Navy pilot, mentioned in a Twitter submit following Tuesday’s listening to that he accepted the invite from the Mexican Congress with the hopes of conserving “the momentum of presidency curiosity in pilot experiences with UAP,” referring to Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (what they’re calling UFOs as of late). He, nonetheless, isn’t shopping for Maussan’s alien corpse mummies.
“I’ll proceed to lift consciousness of UAP as an pressing matter of aerospace security, nationwide safety, and science, however I’m deeply dissatisfied by this unsubstantiated stunt,” he tweeted.
And he’s bought good motive to suppose it’s all hooey.
Again in 2017, an identical alien corpse presentation was made within the Peruvian Congress, spearheaded by the identical Jaime Maussan. Maussan confirmed Peruvian lawmakers related “alien mummies” and claimed they had been present in Peruvian soil. Maussan bought his first quarter-hour of fame, and the “Nazca mummies” made the rounds within the world press. However it was all bogus.
Maussan’s Nazca mummies had been debunked as a hoax involving manipulated mummies and even desecrated human stays. As reported by Latin American outlet Código Oculto on the time, consultants confirmed that the supposed alien our bodies had been nothing greater than a concoction of canine skulls and human bones, crafted to resemble aliens.
Sorry X-Recordsdata followers, this one appears like extra fiction than science.
We get it, although. It’s been an attention-grabbing 12 months for individuals who wish to consider. There’s been extra discuss of aliens and UFOs from authorities officers than ever earlier than. NASA at this time introduced the discharge of a complete report from the Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena unbiased research workforce, which guarantees additional insights.
The unbiased research workforce consists of 16 “group consultants,” and NASA says the report will “make clear the character and origin” of UAPs. We’ll see. It’s going to be exhausting to prime alien mummies.
