SETI's Seth Shostak condemns 'alien bodies' claim over lack of evidence

Not everyone has been impressed by claims made by David Grusch regarding recovered UFOs and 'non-human biologics'.
Writing in an article for MSNBC recently, Shostak - who is certainly no stranger to the topic given that he has been the senior astronomer for the SETI Institute for more than 20 years - has criticized the claims made by Grusch at the subcommittee hearing due to a distinct lack of corroborating evidence.

Grusch stated that he had interviewed dozens of witnesses who had seen or who had even claimed to have been injured by UFOs and was aware of a "decades-long" effort by the US government to retrieve such objects for the purpose of reverse engineering.

"But where is the evidence ?" Shostak wrote.
"It's MIA. Neither Grusch nor anyone else claiming to have knowledge of secret government UAP programs has ever been able to publicly produce convincing photos showing alien hardware splayed across the landscape."

If there was evidence of these objects, he argues, there would be no shortage of scientists vying to access and study it, while the powers that be would be only too happy to make it available for study.

"What is the point of hiding extraterrestrial technology in a Nevada hangar?" he wrote.

"What would be the goal, at this point, of shutting out the scientific community. The information, technology and — importantly — wealth incentives here seem overwhelming."

UFOs were originally called, flying saucers, flying disk, triangular-shaped, cigar-shaped, interplanetary spaceships, spaceships, etc., before Capt. Edward Ruppelt, director of Project Blue Book, coined the term 'unidentified flying objects (UFO). Edward J. Ruppelt - Wikipedia Here is another example from Capt. Edward Ruppelt on what UFOs were called in case you missed it before.   Edward J. Ruppelt, former Chief of the Air Force Project Blue Book investigation, later reported that the study was "very hot and very controversial... It concluded that UFOs were interplanetary spaceships." Ai...

Yes. In reference to old, let's hear what the Air Force has said. INTRODUCTORY SPACE SCIENCE - VOLUME II  CHAPTER XXXIII   UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS   DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS - USAF   UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY    33.6 CONCLUSION      "From available information, the UFO phenomenon appears to have been global in nature for almost 50,000 years."

So... I could have told you that. UFOs are not a new phenomenon. Im pretty sure that even the dinosaurs saw UFOs.

Perhaps dinosaurs did see UFOs. After all, given the age of the universe, there could very well be alien civilizations that are millions of years more advanced our civilization.

People still like to use the term: UFO, even though objects have been visually confirmed as an intelligently controlled craft of various shapes such as the "Tic Tac" shaped craft encountered by Navy pilots. A term: 'Flying Tic Tac' does not have the same ring as flying saucer or UFO for that matter.

This we can agree on.

I grew up with the term "flying saucer" and I still like it today.  I remember the frisbee first coming out and were named "Pluto platters" but we kids called them flying saucers. Happy times, man

'Non-human biologics'. Isn't that most of the biome?

Do you come from a land where opinions are censored?  In some countries, people are actually encouraged to offer opinions on topics that they specialise in.  People with less experience should probably listen.  At least if they want to learn, that is.. What's your speciality, Cho?
