A row has broken out over two ‘Alien corpses’ that were presented in Mexico this week, with a top American UFO specialist who was invited to the unveiling distancing himself from the ‘unsubstantiated stunt’.

Navy Lt. Ryan Graves, who has participated in US Congressional hearings about his personal experience with Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) and the stigma around reporting such sightings, called the presentation a ‘huge step backwards’.

The corpses were presented to a stunned Mexican congress by journalist and long-time UFO enthusiast Jaime Maussan and Mexican Naval Academy forensic scientist Dr. Jose Zelce Benitez. Both quickly hit back at the skeptics.

In a follow-up press conference on Wednesday, Maussan said he was disappointed by Graves’ comments, while Dr. Benitez challenged any scientist from any country to take samples of the alleged alien bodies and conduct their own studies.

He also warned skeptics calling the ‘discovery’ a hoax to be mindful that their claims could destroy his life’s work. Similarly, Maussan – who has led investigations into alien phenomena for decades and who has been associated with debunked alien theories in the past – touted his own credentials.

Maussan testified under oath before Mexican lawmakers that ‘we are not alone’ in the universe and displayed the alleged remains of non-human beings.

In the hearing on Tuesday on FANI, the Spanish acronym for what are usually now termed Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), politicians were shown two artifacts by the journalist, who claimed were the corpses of extraterrestrials.

The specimens were not related to any life on Earth, Maussan said. 

The two tiny ‘bodies,’ displayed in cases, have three fingers on each hand and elongated heads. Maussan said they were recovered in Peru near the ancient Nazca Lines in 2017. He said that they were about 1,000 years old, analyzed through a carbon dating process by Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM). 

But he faced a swift backlash from skeptics on Wednesday who questioned the authenticity of his presentation, including from Graves on X (formerly Twitter) who suggested he was blindsided by the extraordinary presentation.

‘After the U.S. Congressional UFO hearing, I accepted an invitation to testify before the Mexican Congress hoping to keep up the momentum of government interest in pilot experiences with UAP,’ Graves wrote on Wednesday.

‘Unfortunately, yesterday’s demonstration was a huge step backwards for this issue. My testimony centered on sharing my experience and the UAP reports I hear from commercial and military aircrew through ASA’s witness program. 

‘I will continue to raise awareness of UAP as an urgent matter of aerospace safety, national security, and science, but I am deeply disappointed by this unsubstantiated stunt,’ he said.

The comments from Groves prompted Maussan to lash out, taking to Twitter to share and re-share the evidence he presented, as well as less-skeptical news reports on his presentation from around the world.

In a follow-up press conference, he doubled-down on his finding, while Dr. Benitez said any scientist could run their own tests on the ‘aliens’.

While similar such finds in the past have turned out to be the remains of mummified children, Maussan said it was the first time such evidence had been presented.

‘I think there is a clear demonstration that we are dealing with non-human specimens that are not related to any other species in our world and that all possibilities are open for any scientific institution… to investigate it,’ Maussan said.

‘We are not alone,’ he added.

Dr Benitez, who is the Director of the Scientific Institute for Health of the Mexican navy, said X-rays, 3-D reconstruction and DNA analysis had been carried out on the remains. ‘I can affirm that these bodies have no relation to human beings,’ he said.

They were also found to have strong, light bones and no teeth, the presenters said.

Experts in congress showed apparent X-rays of the specimens and told deputies that one of the beings carried ‘eggs’ with embryos inside them.

They said they had implants of cadmium and osmium metals. 

Osmium is one of the most scarce elements in the Earth’s crust and considered the rarest precious metal.

UNAM on Thursday republished a statement first issued in 2017, saying the work by its National Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry with Accelerators (LEMA) was only intended to determine the age of the samples. 

In no case do we make conclusions about the origin of said samples,’ it said.

Mexican Lawmakers also heard from former Graves, and he was the only one to jump ship from the group that presented the findings in congress.

Graves gave testimony earlier this year on ‘UAP’ sightings and government classification. He made claims in July about the threat UAPs pose to America’s national security. 

Graves claimed UFOs were an ‘open secret‘ in the military and testified his squadron regularly detected unidentified objects while stationed near Virginia in 2014.

Congressman Sergio Gutierrez, from President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s ruling Morena party, said he hoped the FANI hearing (the Spanish acronym for what are usually now termed UAP) would be the first of other similar events in Mexico.

‘We are left with reflections, with concerns and with the path to continue talking about this,’ Gutierrez said.

In recent years, the U.S. government has done an about-face on public information on UAP after decades of stonewalling and deflecting. 

The Pentagon has been actively investigating reported sightings in recent years by military aviators, while an independent NASA panel studying UFOs is the first of its kind by the space agency.

The row comes as NASA is set to release on Thursday the findings of a long-awaited study on unexplained flying objects in Earth’s skies.

The US space agency announced last year it was reviewing evidence regarding unidentified anomalous phenomena, or UAPs – which has replaced the term ‘UFO’ in official parlance.

The subject has long fascinated the public but was shunned by mainstream science.

An independent team of 16 researchers shared their preliminary observations in May, finding that existing data and eyewitness reports are insufficient to draw firm conclusions, while calling for more systematic collection of high-quality data.

It’s unlikely Thursday’s report will change that bottom line – but it could eventually usher in the start of a new mission for the agency.

While NASA’s probes and rovers scour the solar system for any fossils of ancient microbes, and its astronomers look for signs of intelligent civilizations on distant planets, its historic posture has been to ‘debunk’ sightings on our home planet.

There have been more than 800 ‘events’ collected over 27 years, of which two to five percent are thought to be possibly anomalous, the report’s authors said during the May meeting.

These are defined as ‘anything that is not readily understandable by the operator or the sensor,’ or ‘something that is doing something weird,’ said team member Nadia Drake.

The US government has begun taking the issue of UAPs more seriously in recent years, in part due to concerns that they are related to foreign surveillance.

NASA’s work, which relies on unclassified material, is separate from a Pentagon investigation, though the two are coordinating on matters of how to apply scientific tools and methods.

In July, a former US intelligence officer made headlines when he told a congressional committee he ‘absolutely’ believes the government is in possession of unidentified anomalous phenomena – as well as remains of their alien operators.

‘My testimony is based on information I’ve been given by individuals with a longstanding track record of legitimacy and service to this country – many of whom also shared compelling evidence in the form of photography, official documentation and classified oral testimony,’ David Grusch told lawmakers.
