Space.com has even reported on it,
"Whatever anyone believes, Plait points out that proof is what's important.
"I am not saying they didn't find an alien ship. I am saying that it's a) unlikely in the extreme, and b) they are predisposed to make such claims,
which means we need to be very skeptical, even more so than usual in such cases. If they provide sufficient evidence, then scientists are obligated to
investigate, of course. But given everything I've read, their evidence to even consider a non-natural cause is pretty weak."
Plait has even thought about what evidence might be necessary. A chunk of debris would help, but not just any sort of material.
"It would need a weird ratio of isotopes, for examples, or clear evidence of long duration space travel," he said. "Even then they must be careful;
manmade space debris rains down on Earth all the time."
Plait, a naturally skeptical person, is willing to wait and see.
"Let's see what these guys bring back," he said. "In the end, it's not what they can claim but what they can support with factual evidence that
counts. The burden of proof is clearly -- and heavily-- on them."
