Conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring believes NASA is orchestrating an alien cover-up by not giving the public access to data from the Voyager 1 space probe.
Voyager 1, NASA’s oldest unmanned aircraft, is exploring the outer solar system after being launched in September 5, 1977.
Waring, founder of alien blog UFO Sightings Daily, has called on NASA to disclose data from the probe, which is 13 billion miles away.
Taking to Twitter, Waring messaged NASA to request access to the data, but claims he received no response.

Writing on his website, he explained: “I sent this tweet and photo I made to NASA departments on Twitter a few minutes ago.
“Of course they won’t respond. They never do.
“Voyager has been out there collecting data for over 40 years and the public has access to none of it.
“NASA said they often beamed back data that the probe has collected, yet, have you seen it?
“Have you heard of someone who has? No! And they never will.”
“Of course they won’t respond. They never do.”
Conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring
Waring is convinced that NASA has been hiding reams of evidence that proves intelligent alien life exists in our solar system and beyond.
But NASA routinely releases images and data from its missions, including the Mars Pathfinder, the Kepler Spacecraft and the International Space Station (ISS).
Nonetheless, Waring believes NASA is holding back evidence over fears knowledge of alien life could disprove religion, thus causing society to collapse.
Waring regularly posts dubious articles claiming he has discovered potential alien life in NASA footage and images.
Perhaps he has similar intentions for the data and images beamed back to Earth by Voyager 1, should it be released.
NASA has extended the lifetime of the Voyager 1 mission by a few years by reigniting its thrusters after more than three decades.
More than 40,000 Americans have taken out insurance against being abducted by aliens.
Having been dormant for 37 years, scientists activated the aircraft’s backup thrusters successfully.
NASA propulsion engineer Todd Barber said Voyager 1 will make a full switch over to backup thrusters by 2020.
“The mood was one of relief, joy and incredulity after witnessing these well-rested thrusters pick up the baton as if no time had passed at all,” he said in a statement.
By switching the thrusters, Voyager 1 may be able to keep sending messages for longer, until around 2025.
