Well, I know the Auditorium has a minimum cost to be rented for an event of 200,000 dollars, and of the total capacity of 10,000 there were only
around 6000 seats used on that day, in their immense majority corresponded to the cheapest seats that paid about 20 dollars per person.
My estimation of what the show produced, from the people that was physically present, is that the organizers couldn't collect more than 400,000
dollars. Now the costs of the preproduction of all what is showed that night is substantial and I am very skeptical that the people that followed the
event in stream were enough to produce a really huge profit.
I say this since it was already enough discredited in advance everywhere to prevent a massive sale of stream connection fees. The interviews to
Maussan on the 2 weeks before were pathetic, he was literally obfuscated by the negativity of almost all the media.
People like Tom Carey, Don Schmitt, Richard Dolan and Anthony Bragaglia have all pointed that the omission of high resolution images by Adam Dew was
the origin of all the issue, so I understood that Maussan was just the very last link of the chain and well possibly he also believed it was genuine.
Now, here there were three other fatal mistakes:
1) No body even thought that this could be certainly the photo of an Alien but corresponding to another very different incident than Roswell 1947.
If this same event would be announced to be of a possible alien image that nobody certainly know where and when it was taken, maybe the scandal never
would have reached this magnitude.
2) When somebody was able with high resolution images, shared by Adam Dew after the show, to unblur the placard, was that everything exploded, all
the ones that were involved entered in panic. The dream team became divided, they were not prepared to handle such possibility.
3) The shock of the placard deciphering , Just in the first 72 hours after the show, produced three different theories of which mummy was the one
depicted in the slides, supported by different researchers. There was no agreement in which one was, because also people that didn't support the event
wanted to show their point, to get credit or fame as the debunkers of the hoax.
Now, I have at this point two observations to make:
1) There is people with unquestionable reputation that attended the show and they still support the fact that the image of the slide correspond to an
alien, In particular the Astronaut Edgar Mitchel, who was a boy in Roswell in the time of the crash, the only witness of Roswell that actually saw
the bodies in the Hangar of the Air force, Mr Eleazar Benavides , and finally the Canadian Expert in forensic Sciences Richard Doble
2)A placard of a Museum is not infallible , it can contain a mistake, there have been cases in the past of objects that were misclassified by curators
and remain exhibited in the wrong category for years. There is people that have based all their criticism against the analysis of the experts in
favor of the image, exclusively in the unblurring of an old placard. We can't assume that a label written by a person that possibly can be wrong is
like the Bible.
Misidentification of Zuni
Tribal objects in museums
This risk of misclassification is so high that even there are objects that have been changed from one category to other along years, depending of the
prevailing dominant theory of the epoch.
The so called Bagdad battery is one example:
The Dendera Light is another example:
The classification of historic items, as well as ancient objects many times depend of the criteria of who is handling them, what was his mentality,
his education, his values, what theories he favored or he rejected.
