The NASA  proof of alien life YouTube video is nothing but Anonymous hoax. After a large number of media outlets took the bait and clicked on a video named “Anonymous: NASA Is About to Announce the Discovery of Intelligent Alien Life”, then reported the info, on a more careful look, it has been proven to be just another video of someone affiliated with the “socially enlightened” hacker group, as The Washington Post calls it.

A recent video uploaded on YouTube under the username Anonymous Global, claims leakage of NASA information regarding a scientific breakthrough: proof that extraterrestrial life exists.

“Latest anonymous message in 2017 just arrived with a huge announcement about the Intelligent Alien Life! NASA says aliens are coming!” the video description reads.

The video consists in a discourse made in a distorted voice by an unidentified person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. The discourse, however, does not bring any news when it comes to alien life. It is composed in several quotes made by NASA representatives, which are taken out of context, leading to tragic misinformation.

At one point, quoting NASA’s associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate Thomas Zurbuchen, the Anonymous affiliate says: “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.”

 

“We are on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented, discoveries in history”, says the anonymous representative, quoting NASA’s Thomas Zurbuchen.

 

 

PopSci mentions that in the full version of that statement, Zurbuchen had also said: “While we haven’t found definitive signs of life elsewhere just yet, our search is making remarkable progress.”

And for confirmation that the NASA proof of alien life is just an Anonymous hoax, the website has reached out to Zurbuchen for comments. “For years NASA has expressed interest in searching for signs of life beyond Earth”, he replied, adding that NASA’s efforts of seeking signs of past and present life on Mars and ocean worlds outside our solar system are ongoing. “While we do not yet have answers, we will continue to work to address the fundamental question, ‘are we alone?’”

“There’s no pending announcement regarding extraterrestrial life” Zurbuchen said, putting rumours of the NASA proof of alien life to rest.
