A NASA scientist has claimed that he has found an evidence of alien life that is beyond question, a study published in The Journal of Cosmology states.
Astrobiologist Richard B. Hoover, of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, studied an extremely rare form of meteorities, called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites, and found conclusive proof of alien life in the form of tiny fossilized bacteria.
One of the meteorites provided evidence of an organism similar in size and structure to the bacterium, called Titanospirillum velox, which is found on planet Earth.
Hoover said the findings show that life is not restricted to the Earth. He added that life on Earth could have planted by bacteria in a asteroid hitting Earth long ago.
Speaking on his findings, Hoover said, "We have known for a long time that there were very interesting biomarkers in carbonaceous meteorites and the detection of structures that are very similar ... to known terrestrial cyanobacteria is interesting in that it indicates that life is not restricted to the planet Earth.”
However, Hoover is not the first scientist to claim discovery of alien microscopic life. In 1996, NASA scientists claimed that they discovered fossilized microbial life from a 4-billion-year-old meteorite from Mars.
