Nasa urged Mexican authorities to provide samples to the international scientific community days after authorities allegedly discovered fossils that were not human-like and claimed to be those of aliens.
Jaime Maussan, a Mexican journalist and UFO enthusiast, presented what he said were the bones of non-human entities during Mexico’s first congressional hearing on UFOs in a contentious move that has drawn criticism from around the world.
The two reported specimens, which had three fingers on each hand and two small bodies with long heads, were purported to have been found in Peru in 2017.
These relics, according to Maussan, have no connection to any known type of Earthly life. However, there was a lot of scepticism and criticism directed towards this presentation. During a news conference, questions concerning the Mexican presentation were directed at NASA officials.
Former Princeton University astrophysics department head David Spergel pushed for openness and recommended that any puzzling discoveries be made available to the whole scientific community for review. Make samples of any unusual items available to the scientific community at large, he said, and we’ll examine them to discover what’s within.
Ryan Graves, a former pilot for the US Navy who had previously spoken at a US Congressional hearing regarding his encounters with UAP, voiced his dismay on the social networking site X, formerly known as Twitter.
The presentation, according to him, was a “unsubstantiated stunt” and a “huge step backwards” for the problem.
Leslie Urteaga, the minister of culture for Peru, expressed worry over how the samples had left the nation and claimed that no local scientific organisation had classified the bones as non-human. She disclosed that people connected to Maussan are the subject of an active criminal case.
Despite the criticism, Maussan stood by his allegations and urged his critics to provide supporting documentation. He said that his detractors were making vague accusations and assertions in an effort to cast doubt on the importance of his finding.
Maussan stated that the specimens had been carbon-dated by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), however UNAM explained that its role in the process was limited to establishing the samples’ age.
Requests to access the whole study results or speak with the researchers involved were denied by the institution.
