Next, a question from Sam Cabral, who asked the committee whether NASA has been in contact with Mexican authorities after submitting alleged “non-human” remains to Congress earlier this week.
Jaime Mosan, a self-proclaimed UFO expert, brought two ancient “non-human” alien corpses to a congressional hearing — he said the bodies were found in Cusco, Peru, in 2017, and he claimed radiocarbon testing dated the bodies to Up to 1800 years.
More than 30% of the DNA in the samples was “unidentified” according to tests conducted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), evidence, Mosan said, that they are “not part of our terrestrial evolution.”
But Mosan has been accused in the past of fraud. An Onam scholar spoke out publicly yesterday to refute any notion that he supports Mosan’s latest claims.
Spergel responds, saying he saw the story on Twitter. His recommendation to the Mexican authorities? “Make the samples available to the global scientific community and we’ll see what’s out there.”
Evans agrees with this view. The purpose of the team’s work, he says, is to channel “speculation and conspiracy toward science and rationality.” The key, Evans says, is using data.
