MEXICO CITY, Mexico- In a surprising turn of events, Mexico’s Congress recently held a hearing on extraterrestrial studies, featuring testimony from experts in the field. The session began with a dramatic presentation by Jaime Maussan, a self-proclaimed ufologist, who unveiled two caskets containing what he claimed were the remains of nonhuman beings. These alleged alien corpses, said to be 1,000 years old and discovered in Peru, resembled the stereotypical depiction of aliens with their white appearance, large heads, small bodies, and three-fingered hands. While skeptics have dismissed similar claims in the past, Maussan insisted that these bodies were authentic and had not been manipulated.
During the hearing, Maussan, under oath, reiterated that the bodies were not mummies but complete and unaltered specimens. However, scientists have previously categorized such findings as either ancient Peruvian mummies or manipulated mummies. To support his claims, Maussan enlisted the assistance of José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, a forensic expert and military doctor, who presented scans of the alleged alien bodies. According to Zalce Benítez, the beings possessed large brains and eyes, suggesting a wide stereoscopic vision, and lacked teeth, indicating a diet of liquids rather than solid food.
The hearing also featured a speech by Ryan Graves, the executive director of the Americans for Safe Aerospace organization. Graves, a former Navy fighter pilot, had previously testified before a U.S. congressional subcommittee investigating UFOs. He shared his experiences and the reports he had received from commercial and military aircrew members regarding unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP). Additionally, Mexican pilots presented videos depicting their encounters with fast-moving flying objects, further fueling the belief that we are not alone in the universe.
However, the day after the hearing, Graves distanced himself from the event. Graves clarified that his intention in accepting the invitation was to maintain the momentum of government interest in UAP as a matter of aerospace safety, national security, and scientific inquiry.
