Anche la NASA si esprime, per voce del Dr. Paul Hertz, chief scientist of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.

“NASA is a scientific and technical agency committed to a culture of openness with the media and public. While we value the free exchange of ideas, data, and information as part of scientific and technical inquiry, NASA cannot stand behind or support a scientific claim unless it has been peer-reviewed or thoroughly examined by other qualified experts. This paper was submitted in 2007 to the International Journal of Astrobiology. However, the peer review process was not completed for that submission. NASA also was unaware of the recent submission of the paper to the Journal of Cosmology or of the paper’s subsequent publication. Additional questions should be directed to the author of the paper.”

Intantanto salta fuori che il Dr. Richard Hoover è in realtà Mr. Richard Hoover. :facepunch:

Tutto ciò non fa bene alla scienza! :point_up:
