Conspiracy theorists believe that NASA has been in cahoots with the little green men for decades – and yesterday the wilder parts of the internet went (even more) nuts.
A video supposedly posted by hacktivist collective Anonymous claimed NASA was ‘on the brink’ of revealing contact with aliens.
But NASA has stepped in to say that they’re not going to be doing a press conference with the little green men any time soon.
Dr Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator, NASA Science Mission Directorate, said, ‘Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life.’
But before UFO fans give up in despair, NASA’s Dr Thomas Zurbuchen offered a shred of hope – by pointing to multiple NASA missions which might prove aliens exist.
Fingers (and tentacles) crossed!
