‘Unexplained Files’ to cover controversial UFO cases tonight

The hit Science Channel show The Unexplained Files is set to tackle two controversial UFO cases in tonight’s episode.

The episode will first cover a mysterious skeleton discovered in Peru in 2011. The skeleton made headlines the following year when analysis revealed unusual DNA sequencing. The media quickly latched on to claims that this could be the skeleton of an alien. According the Science Channel, “Anthropologist Dr. Theo Paredes investigates these shocking claims as forensic analysis reveals that the skeleton was not the victim of disease or ritual cranial deformation. And when tests fail to identify paternal DNA, he is forced to consider the possibility of an extra-terrestrial origin.”

From the desert to the Baltic Sea, the show will dive into the mysterious object discovered resting on the floor of the ocean. The shape of the object resembles the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars and has lead researchers to believe they’ve discovered the remains of a crashed UFO. The mystery deepens as they uncover reports of military UFO records and further UFO sightings in the area. The Science Channel states, “Polish fisherman Mirek Malczewski and five other crew members witness a UFO hovering above the Baltic. The craft has a remarkable similarity to the disc found by Ocean X.”

The Unexplained Files: Peruvian Alien Skull and Baltic Sea UFO airs tonight, Tuesday, August 5th, on the Science Channel at 10PM and 1 AM EST.

Did the Smithsonian discover ALIEN skulls in Antarctica?

An archaeologist and his team reportedly discovered three elongated skulls in Antarctica.

American Live Wire, a self-described “entertaining news & information” website, published a story on April 2 claiming that Smithsonian archaeologist Damian Waters and his team uncovered three elongated skulls in La Paille, Antarctica. The article claims that this monumental discovery shocked scientists because the skulls are the first evidence of ancient humans in Antarctica.

The article acknowledges that the practice of skull deformation was common among many ancient cultures. But the article then goes on to assert,

These elongated skulls are much, much larger than normal human skulls would be. Purposeful cranial deformation can change the shape of a skull, but it cannot increase the volume of the skull. In addition, these skulls have quite a few other important physical characteristics that greatly set them apart from normal human skulls.

The article concludes by positing, “Now the thing on everyone’s mind is, are these skulls alien? Are they extra-terrestrial?”

But before exploring the possibility of extraterrestrial origin, there are several other items in this article that raise questions. For starters, approximately ninety eight percent of the continent of Antarctica is covered by ice. Antarctica has research stations, but not cities, so it is unclear where La Paille, Antarctica is supposed to be. The article never cites a source for this major scientific breakthrough. There is no mention of such a discovery on the Smithsonian Newsdesk. And there is no mention of the alleged archaeologist Damian Waters on the Smithsonian website.

An article with similar information was published on the website WorldNewsDailyReport.com on February 12, 2014.

Both articles reporting this major discovery in Antarctica include the same photo of three elongated skulls (the photo included in this article). The caption under the photo on American Live Wire reads, “3 Elongated Skulls Found in Antarctica.” But this image is not of newly discovered elongated skulls. This photo is actually of three elongated skulls on display at the Regional Museum of Ica in Peru. The photo was taken by Marcin Tlustochowicz and uploaded to Wikipedia in 2008.

It is possible that such a discovery was made. But it is highly unlikely given the lack of evidence to support the claims made in the two small articles.
