We saw an interesting story over on Thinq uk this morning. It appears that a NASA Scientist may have found microscopic fossils of alien life within fragments of a meteorite.
Richard Hoover has published pictures of this worm style bateria in a paper for the Journal Of Cosmology. Hoover says that these fossils originate beyond the Earth and have not been introduced after the meteorite landed.
The study says: “These fossilized bacteria are not Earthly contaminants but are the fossilized remains of living organisms which lived in the parent bodies of these meteors, e.g. comets, moons, and other astral bodies.”
“The implications are that life is everywhere, and that life on Earth may have come from other planets.”
While many of these cases can be dismissed as idiotic, Hoover is a widely respected scientist who is only following the facts. Rudy Schild, the editor in chief of the Center for Astrophysics said he is a “highly respected scientist and astrobiologist with a prestigious record of accomplishment at NASA.” He then added “Given the controversial nature of his discovery, we have invited 100 experts and have issued a general invitation to over 5,000 scientists from the scientific community to review the paper and to offer their critical analysis.”
KitGuru says: Is there life on other planets? it is quite possible, even if they are too far away for us to reach.
