A YouGov poll with Huffington Post revealed in 2013 that forty-eight percent of adults in the United States believe–in many cases–that UFO linked with alien life is already present on Earth. That is nearly half of the total population of the most powerful country in the world. Researchers have suggested that it is linked with the Roswell incident which is by far the most popular UFO story in the country and around the world.
So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that a new UFO conspiracy theory has surfaced online accusing NASA–the government’s space agency–of hiding the visitation of an extraterrestrial life. This week, reports revealed that NASA deliberately cut the International Space Station live video feed–or the ISS live feed–with only one reason, and that is to hide the fact that aliens frequently visit us.
It all started when videos appeared on YouTube, accusing the space agency of cutting the live feed because an unidentified flying object descending to Earth was caught on view.
Youtuber named Streepcap1, according to USA Today, was the first to upload a video about the alleged cover-up, showing a bright light ‘descending’ to our planet before the feed was cut. Although the said uploader of the video did not say directly that the thing is of an advanced alien civilization, the user points out that it was indeed ‘strange.’
“This could well be a meteor or the like,” Streetcap1 reveals in the caption of the video. “What made it interesting was the camera cut off when the UFO seemed to stop.”
The white single bit in the middle of the photo below is allegedly the UFO.
But NASA was quick to issue a statement dismissing the theory. In an interview with website CNET, Daniel Huot–a NASA spokesperson–has said that they did not cut the feed, and explained how the thing works.
The video coming from the ISS, says Huot, is from the agency’s High Definition Earth Viewing, or HDEV, experiment on the International Space Station, and it is mounted externally on the low Earth orbit station. He also adds that it includes several commercial high-definition cameras pointed at our planet, and they are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature-controlled housing.
“The experiment is on automatic controls to cycle through the various cameras,” he said.
Of course people on the web aren’t buying the explanation from the space agency, with some posting their own ‘knowledge’ about how the space agency is trying to keep the UFO visitation a secret.
One guy on Facebook says the cover-up is for the protection of “the religion” (because many religions can’t explain alien life). Meanwhile, a fan of UFO conspiracy theories on Twitter suggests that it is just one of many evidences that confirms NASA alien cover-ups.
Space itself is a vast field with stars, planets, dwarf planets, moons and rocks both big and small. It is possible that the bright light caught on cam of the ISS is a space debris left by a former space mission, or just a small meteor passing through Earth’s thick atmosphere. Another suggestion published online suggests that it could be one of the planets in the Solar System.
