A latest YouTube video from hacktivist group Anonymous has claimed that, NASA believes it is about to discover alien life.
The video, released Tuesday on an unofficial YouTube channel claiming to be affiliated with Anonymous, repeats the text of three articles from the conspiracy website Ancient-Code.com.
It comes after Nasa’s Kepler space observatory discovered 219 “potential new worlds” in other solar systems.
Ten of the planets are “rocky” like the Earth and fall in their systems’ “Goldilocks zone” – so-called because it is not too hot or too cold for life to exist.
In their video, Anonymous claimed head of NASA Science Mission Directorate Professor Thomas Zurbuchen told the meeting: “Our civilization is on the verge of discovering evidence of alien life in the cosmos.
In April, scientists announced that the Cassini space probe had discovered hydrogen on the Saturn moon of Enceladus, the ‘missing ingredient’ that could support microbial life on the seafloor of the icebound moon.
And just this month, scientists at NASA’s Ames Research Center revealed the ‘most reliable’ catalog yet of potential planets in our galaxy, bringing the total to 4,034.
According to the scientists, over 2,300 planets spotted during the Kepler missions have been confirmed so far, including over 30 terrestrial-sized planets that lie in the ‘Goldilocks Zone’ of their star considered conducive to life.
The new findings represent an explosion in knowledge about potential havens for alien life on other planets.
‘Only in the last few decades have we been able to detect the existence of other worlds,’ said House Committee on Science Space and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith in an April 26 hearing. ‘The pursuit of evidence of life beyond our planet fascinates the American people.’
