NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan said “strong indications of life beyond Earth” would likely be obtained within the next decade.
But it has been interpreted as a cryptic code for an imminent disclosure, as soon as this year, by leading ET conspiracists.
Ms Stofan said: “I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade.
“I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years.
In a posting on Conspiracyclub.com, the website argued: “Most people ‘in the know’ realise that NASA is just part of the military industrial complex, but a recent open admission on mainstream news that ‘there are indications of alien life’ is likely the beginning of a bid to get your undivided attention before full-forced disclosure ensues.
“It isn’t going to take that long if we open our eyes.”
