1947 'alien autopsy' film frame is up for auction as an NFT

A picture is worth a thousand words, but is a single frame of 16-mm film worth $1 million? That’s the opening bid for a negative frame of black-and-white movie footage from 1947, allegedly showing an extraterrestrial corpse on a medical examiner’s table.

The frame comes from an infamous and very implausible “alien autopsy” said to have been captured on film in 1947, following reports of a UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico. Lore surrounding the crash claimed that the made-for-a-movie creature was aboard the UFO and died in the crash; it was then dissected in secrecy by the U.S. government, the tale goes, according to a statement about the auction.
