Breaking, breaking NASA has not found ET

From Mike Wall at Space.com:

NASA is not preparing to drop an alien-life bombshell, despite what you may have heard.

Last week, the hacking group Anonymous posted a video on YouTube suggesting that the space agency is about to announce the discovery of life beyond Earth. The video has made a big splash online — so big that NASA science chief Thomas Zurbuchen addressed the rumor today (June 26).

“Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life,” Zurbuchen said via Twitter, where he posts as @Dr_ThomasZ. More.

Aw, it’s nice day. Go back to the pool.

    NASA should have consulted Steven Spielberg who most probably knows where ET is.
    I recall going with my wife and my older child to a movie theater in Madrid to see ET. I think it was in the 1980s. BTW, the poor creature was not treated very nicely by the dumb humans – except Elliott and his siblings. At the end ET was fed up with the silly humans and called his relatives to pick him up.
    Why this obsession now to contact ET again? To apologize for the mistreatment? Did we get any smarter since then? It doesn’t seem so. 🙂

    How do we know ET isn’t already here dwelling among us, either disguised to pass as human or using Avatar-like simulacra to observe us in our natural habitat?

    I’ve long suspected that internet trolls are alien.

    Mung,

    this posting by Denyse is a piece of internet trolling.

    A sound bite with no substance posted as….? As what exactly? Proof that NASA are honest and don’t support claims made by unqualified people.

    NASA, denying the internet claim they may have found life, reflects well upon this scientific agency.

    That NEWS for O’Leary, thinks this is in some way damaging to the agency simply shows us she has no concept of the value of, ‘academic, and scientific rigour.’

    This agency will take no credit for science it has not done, will not substantiate false claims, and does not produce false news.

    Wow! NEWS posted a post confirming NASA’s impartiality, and scientific fairness.

    Now, if only IDists would show as much academic morality.

    Trying to deflect attention like that won’t work. We know what you are.

    They say it takes one to know one, and I am rather adept at spotting them. So you may be on to something.

    It’s her role to try to bring traffic to the site.

    I agree Mung, it is her job to attract an audience.

    Facts be damned!
