A NASA scientist has claimed to found life suggesting the presence of aliens. NASA scientist Dr Richard Hoover said the discovery might help in explaining how life on earth started.
Hoover, an astrobiologist with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, studied an extremely rare form of meteorites – CI1 carbonaceous chondrites – of which only nine are known to exist on earth.
According to him, life on earth could have been planted by bacteria in an asteroid hitting the planet in its infancy.
In one case he found on a meteorite an organism similar in size and overall structure to the giant bacterium Titanospirillum velox, an organism found here on planet Earth.
“I interpret it as indicating that life is more broadly distributed than restricted strictly to the planet earth,” the Daily Mail quoted him as telling Fox News.
“The exciting thing is that they [the bacteria] are in many cases recognisable and can be associated very closely with the generic species here on earth,” he said.
He added, “There are some that are just very strange and don’t look like anything that I’ve been able to identify, and I’ve shown them to many other experts that have also come up stumped.”
Hoover said, “If someone can explain how it is possible to have a biological remain that has no nitrogen, or nitrogen below the detect ability limits that I have, in a time period as short as 150 years, then I would be very interested in hearing that.”
