Do you believe in aliens?
Anonymous, the global hacking collective, believes that alien life exists—and that NASA is about to confirm it.
The shadowy group made the claim in a 12-and-a-half-minute video published on an unofficial YouTube channel on Tuesday.
The video centres around recent findings by the American space organization, including the discovery of 219 new planet candidates by NASA’s Kepler space telescope team in June, as well as comments made by a senior NASA official during a U.S. government hearing.
But while Anonymous is right to point out that NASA is probably closer than ever in human history to discovering extraterrestrial life, it may be a leap to say concrete evidence for it exists.
NASA has made statements recently that suggest that the discovery of aliens is a matter of when, rather than if.
They said “Taking into account all of the different activities and missions that are specifically searching for evidence of alien life, we are on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented discoveries in history,”
But while NASA are enthusiastic about the prospect of finding alien life, they have not claimed to have actually done so.
So – today I want to know if you think aliens actually exist?
