It's a question most of us have pondered at least once or twice in our lives. Do aliens exist?
Now, DNA testing on 'alien corpses' found in Peru could provide us with an answer.
The world was left completely baffled when Mexican journalist, Jaime Maussan, introduced us to the two tiny mummies earlier this year.
The 70-year-old claimed that they were centuries-old alien corpses found in a diatom mine in the city of Cusco, Peru, and said that finding them is 'the most important thing that has happened to humanity.'
But, legal proceedings were later started against Maussan for allegedly stealing them from their country of origin.
Now, speaking in front of the Mexican Congress earlier this week, the controversial figure claims to have had the corpses DNA tested with shocking results.
He said the tests show that 30 per cent of the DNA is 'not from any known species,' with Mexican researchers appearing alongside him to confirm that the mummies were 'real.'
Maussan said: “This is the first time extraterrestrial life has been presented in this manner. We have a clear example of non-human specimens unrelated to any known species on our planet. The public has the right to know about non-human technology and beings. This reality unites humanity rather than dividing us. We are not alone in this vast universe; we should embrace this truth."
"These specimens do not belong to our terrestrial evolution. They were not creatures discovered after a UFO crash. Instead, they were found in diatom mines and later transformed into fossilised mummies.”
And, ufologist Will Galison, who has seen the mummies up close, claims we should be far more worried about them than we actually are.
Because let's face it, I don't think this is the thing we are losing sleep over.
It's safe to say that Maussan raised a few concerned eyebrows during the initial discovery of these 'alien corpses'.
But do you think this time he could finally have proof of extraterrestrial life we've spent years searching for?
Well, the controversial bloke has a long list of otherworldly 'discoveries' to his name.
His greatest hits include the 'Metepec Creature,' which later turned out to be a skinned monkey, and the 'Demon Fairy' which was actually the remains of a bat, padded out with some wooden sticks and epoxy resin.
Obviously, the truth behind the latter was not revealed until after it had sold for $10,000 (£7,910).
I wonder if he accepts refunds?
Maussan has also received the great honour of being inducted into the UFO Watchdog Hall of Shame for UFO-related false claims and fraud attempts.
All of a sudden, the odds of this one being real aren't looking too great, are they?Featured Image Credit: Daniel Cardenas/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images
