Have NASA scientists found alien life?

Fossilized bacteria found on three meteorites, study says


Tiny fossilized bacteria that isn’t native to Earth has been found on three meteorites according to a new study published in the Journal of Cosmology by astrobiologist Richard Hoover, who’s based at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. But the research is so controversial, Reuters reports, that it’s accompanied by a statement from the journal editor looking for other scientific comment. Hoover claims there’s evidence of microfossils similar to cyanobacteria (blue-green algae, which is also known as pond scum) on the inner surfaces of three meteorites. Hoover specializes in the study of microscopic life forms in extreme environments.

  1. I have no idea why this is news again. Bill Clinton announced this years ago when he was president.

    • that was debunked, and this likely will be too. nasa is already distancing itself, although one would expect that., regardless of the veracity of the claims.

      the problem is that it's more likely that what they're finding is earth-based. you can look up the details yourself.

      it's a great news story, though. personally, i'm quite sure there's life out there; we just haven't convincingly proven it exists. yet…

      • It wasn't debunked, it's just been found again.
