NASA astronaut saw 'alien' in Space Shuttle

In a recent Twitter exchange, Leland Melvin described seeing 'something organic/alien-like' in the payload bay.
The retired astronaut's recollection of the incident was posted on social media earlier this month after he was asked about his thoughts on the existence of alien life and whether he had ever seen a UFO.

"I have not seen one in space or on the ground but thought I saw something organic/alien like floating out of the payload bay," he replied. "I called the ground to ask what it could be and it was ice that had broken off of the Freon hoses.Translucent, curved, organic looking."

Although it certainly makes sense that what he saw was simply a piece of ice, the fact that he even considered the possibility that it might be extraterrestrial in nature is certainly intriguing.

Some conspiracy theorists have already jumped on his comments as evidence of a NASA cover-up.

When asked if it was possible that ground control was lying to him, Melvin replied:

"Hmmm. Don't think so but you never know. I was about to say 'Houston we have a problem' but know everyone spins-up when those words are uttered from a space vehicle."

Yeah, what if it actually was just ice, like they say? He saw it and is apparently fine with it as the answer.

Aha! but...... Did this 'ice' have green skin, tiny radio telescope dishes on its head, and a fifties-B-movie-style ray gun?

I'm guessing the click count would be lower if the headline read "Astronaut says he mistook ice for something else".

This is literally click-bait non-news.

Isn't this just pure clickbait? He said he thought it looked organicy sort of ish, but he accepted the explanation that it was in fact ice? So isn't this whole story something of a waste of time (and the headline extremely misleading)?

The reason why people 'laugh / sigh'  at believers is because they either can not be bothered to read the article or they simply do not understand it.

Yes, but there are still some believers who think otherwise.

Since he said it was ice then I agree.  Let's take him at his word.

Someone, please enlighten me... What are the visual differences between organic looking ice and inorganic looking ice?

Deceptive Click bait (again). Hope it's not the future for this website.
