The bodies had been discovered in 2017 in Nazca, Peru, and proved that "we are not alone in the universe," Maussan said. He believed that the aliens lived on earth among humans at one point, like these two bodies he recovered from an algae mine. Clara, the female, was pregnant when she died, and Mauricio had a chest implant made of a very rare metal. Both were at least 1,000 years old.
You can imagine, if you don't already know, how this piece of news dropped and the kind of waves it created. Aware of being called out as a liar, Maussan claimed the bodies had been carbon-tested, X-rayed, and analyzed by scientists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) to confirm that they weren't human.
This is Maussan fighting
These tests were three in number: a simple X-ray, a CT scan, and a fluoroscopy study. Benitez says they prove beyond any doubt that each body is a single skeleton not assembled by various parts or manipulated in any way. He also made a point of stressing how the tiny aliens didn't show bolts or other metal supporting structures to hold them together.
Previously, researchers said Maussan had tried a similar stunt before, with doll-like creations made up of real bones, both human and animal, held together with glue and synthetic skin. They believed this was the case as well. Peruvian Culture Minister Leslie Urteaga went on the record to say that the "aliens" were actually pre-Hispanic relics modified to look like ET and even launched a criminal investigation into how Maussan got them out of the country.
Below is a brief video of the latest round of lab tests on the tiny aliens. As far as we know, Maussan has yet to keep his initial promise of making all data available or to provide samples to the scientific community so he can have the findings peer-reviewed, as is customary.
