In a rather strange and bizarre claim, a hacking collective known for its high-profile leaks and security breaches has claimed that NASA is aware about aliens and it will soon be making an announcement in this regards.

The hacking collective that made those claims is Anonymous, which is said to be a loose group of hackers and hacktivists. According to Anonymous, NASA has discovered aliens and that it will be making a public announcement regarding them soon.

“NASA says aliens are coming!” the group wrote on their website.

In a related video, Anonymous claims that there have been many updates, comments and statements that have been made by astronauts that hint at presence of aliens as well as evidence that NASA has already discovered them. In the video Anonymous claims that beyond the statements by astronauts, there are other alien-friendly comments made by space exploration enthusiasts in the past, as well as various alien and UFO `sightings` as evidence that “something is going on in the skies above”.

Anonymous is basing it claims on a number of recent NASA discoveries coupled with comments made by one of the agency’s spokesmen during a Congressional hearing in April titled “Advances in the Search for Life”.

In the hearing Professor Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate said that recent discoveries by NASA are promising signs that we`re closer than ever to discovering evidence of alien life. These discoveries include hydrogen in Saturn’s moon Enceladus and the Hubble team’s promising results from the oceans of Jupiter’s moon Europa.

In the hearing the professor also said that if all these activities are taken into account specifically those missions that are searching for evidence of alien life, then NASA is on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented, discoveries in history.
