A Brit hacker who managed to gain access to top secret NASA computers has astonishingly claimed to have found evidence of U.S. warships stationed in space.
Gary McKinnon, who was wanted by America over the biggest military hack of all time, said that he discovered a secret space programme run by the American Navy.
Speaking to UFO channel RichPlanet TV, the 49-year-old revealed: “I used a program called Landsearch, which could search all the files and folders.
“But I scanned and looked for documents, I found an Excel spreadsheet which said, ‘Non-terrestrial officers’.
“It had ranks and names. It had tabs for ‘material transfer’ between ships.

“I took that to be, they must have a ships based in space – the names started with U.S.S.”
Mr McKinnon managed to gain access to the computers for several months without detection, and caught sight of an image that he believes could have been proof of alien life.
He said: “It was the hemisphere of a planet I assume was Earth.
“It was cloudy, but there was the classic cigar-shape (UFO).”
He added that he “did not feel it was man-made”.
Home Secretary Theresa May blocked the extradition order for Mr McKinnon in 2012 and it was announced later that year that he would not face prosecution in the UK.
