> Self-proclaimed UFO expert shows alleged aliens to Mexico’s Congress
墨西哥展出“外星人” 到底真的假的

A Mexican journalist and self-proclaimed “ufologist” presented what he said were thousand-year-old “non-human” corpses to Mexico’s Congress, unveiling two scrawny, cartoonlike bodies during a hearing on Tuesday.

“This is the first time [extraterrestrial life] is presented in such a form, and I think there is a clear demonstration that we are dealing with nonhuman specimens that are not related to any other species in our world,” Jaime Maussan told lawmakers, speaking under oath. “We are not alone.”

The tiny alleged aliens, which lay in two boxes during the hearing, are likely about 1,000 years old, according to analyses conducted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico, he said.

The bodies were recovered underground in Peru in 2017 and found wrapped in algae, which helped preserve them, he said.

The figures looked like E.T., the fictional movie alien. They were both white, with enlarged heads, three fingers per hand and long, skinny limbs. “These are not mummies,” Maussan said. “These are complete bodies that have not been manipulated.”

Forensic expert and military doctor José de Jesús Zalce Benítez then presented scans of the alleged aliens to the Congress, stating that the beings once had large brains and eyes, and have no relation to human beings.

However Maussan’s claims regarding “nonhuman” remains have been disputed in the past.

In 2017, Maussan made similar claims in Peru, and a report by the country’s prosecutor’s office found that the bodies were actually “recently manufactured dolls, which have been covered with a mixture of paper and synthetic glue to simulate the presence of skin.”

> NASA names new chief to study UFOs


NASA said on Thursday that it had appointed a research director to study "unidentified anomalous phenomenon" (UAP), popularly known as UFOs.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said it was the first time NASA had taken specific action to investigate UFOs.
NASA 局长比尔•尼尔森称,这是NASA第一次采取具体行动来调查不明飞行物。

NASA declined to name the appointee out of concern for possible threats and harassment, noting only that the person has been with the agency “for a while”.

The new research director will be tasked with developing and overseeing NASA’s studies of UAP, Nelson said.

The agency will use artificial intelligence and machine learning to search for anomalies in the sky and will share them publicly.

Previously, an independent team of NASA researchers investigated UAP but did not find any alien presence.

However, Nelson expressed his personal opinion, saying that the universe is so large, with billions of galaxies, that he believes life exists beyond Earth.
