That scene is probably not far from the mind of Kristian Brown when he came across, purely by accident, on a copy of the original script for Star Wars. Now the University of New Brunswick in Saint John in Canada will have to make sure they never again forget that they hold a piece of pop culture history.

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Several sixty-year-old slides, recently claimed by their owner, Adam Dew, to be photos of aliens from Roswell, New Mexico, have been debunked. Just this past week, several people - citizens, UFO "believers" and even some so-called experts in the field - were invited to a New Mexico event to screen a documentary on the slides. As it turns out, the images show no more than the remains of a mummified child. The child currently resides in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, after having visited San Francisco on temporary loan in the 1940s.
