Hacktivist group Anonymous has released a YouTube video in which it claims NASA could soon announce the discovery of alien life.
Anonymous is known around the world for its work. In the past, it’s taken on the likes of Isis, Donald Trump, and Westboro Baptist Church – the small American religious group that campaigns against homosexuality.
In its latest video, Anonymous states that a NASA spokesperson called Professor Thomas Zurbuchen told a recent US Science, Space, and Technology committee meeting that extraterrestrial life could soon be proven.
“Our civilisation is on the verge of discovering evidence of alien life in the cosmos,” Zurbuchen supposedly said.
“Taking into account all of the different activities and missions that are searching for alien life, we are on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented discoveries in history.”
Anonymous has also written about alien life on its website.
It said: “The evidence sure seems to imply that something is going on in the skies above.
“It would cost a lot for spaceships and a continuous flow of taxes and black budget dollars could imply a rational that there is more than meets the eye and or that of public knowledge.”
Obviously, this is speculation. At present, there’s no evidence – at least none we know of – that proves the existence of alien life. But many think it’s a possibility.
Last week, NASA discovered 219 new planets, ten of which are rocky planets possibly not all that dissimilar to Earth.
Although these planets are in the solar system’s ‘Goldilocks Zone,’ which means they’re too hot or cold to be habitable.
