There have been recent discoveries in our solar system and beyond that have raised the hopes of alien hunters who are just waiting to have the first contact with the alien life. Science Alert says, no, they are not.
Anonymous cites out-of-context testimony from Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate, given during an April 26 hearing before the House Science, Space and Technology.
In case you don't know about this group, it is an global network of activists and hackers, formed in 2003. According to the group of Hactivists "Anonymous", NASA found evidence of alien life, and they were considering revealing this information very soon. The video comes after Nasa's recent announcements of Kepler discovering hundreds of new potential exoplanet candidates, 10 of which are believed to be Earth-sized and might be habitable and could further the hunt for alien life. At least, that is what hacking group Anonymous claims.
Even Sputnik News, which is run by the Russian government and named after a satellite that symbolizes its space rivalry with NASA, flirted with the notion that USA government scientists might have beaten their Russian rivals to the biggest discovery in history.
"Just about anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the dark web can grab themselves a few minutes in the online limelight by "releasing" an "announcement" and crediting the story as being from Anonymous", Sputnik writes.
What all of this really indicates are the advances made by science in the search for habitable planets and extraterrestrial life forms, but certainly not evidence that the new life was actually found.
A couple of days ago, NASA announced that there was a new catalog with the findings of the Kepler Mission. We may not find alien civilizations, but there may be small microbial life elsewhere in our own solar system, and if it is there, we are getting closer to finding it. "This carefully-measured catalogue is the foundation for directly answering one of the astronomy's most compelling questions - how many planets like our Earth are in the galaxy?" said Susan Thompson, Kepler research scientist.
