What were alleged to be 1,000-year-old “non-human alien corpses” were presented in glass display cases before the Mexican Congress Tuesday during its first hearing on UFOs.
“They are non-human beings that are not part of our terrestrial evolution,” Mexican journalist and ufologist Jaime Maussan testified under oath.
As two small, mummified specimens – seen with three fingers on each hand – were unveiled, Maussan said researchers at the Autonomous National University of Mexico have conducted Carbon 14 analysis that determined the corpses are around 1,000 years old.
He claimed the purported bodies were found fossilized in mines in Cusco, Peru, in a layer of diatomaceous earth, or ancient phytoplankton algae.
“These aren't beings that were found after a UFO wreckage. They were found in diatom mines, and were later fossilized,” he said, later adding, “Whether they are aliens or not, we don't know, but they were intelligent, and they lived with us. They should rewrite history.… We are not alone in this vast universe, we should embrace this reality.”
Through testing, Maussan claimed, Mexican scientists determined more than 30% of the specimens’ DNA was “unknown.” One specimen allegedly was discovered to have what appeared to be eggs or ovaries inside, while another had implants of rare metals, such as Osmium.
The Independent noted that Maussan, an investigative journalist who has been researching extraterrestrial phenomenon for decades, has been connected to previous claims of debunked alien discoveries, including five mummies discovered in Peru in 2017 later determined to be remains of human children.
