British researchers find signs of extraterrestrial life on meteor
DON’T worry. The simple organisms from the great beyond are going to invade and tell us what to do. It will be okay:
“Researchers in the United Kingdom have found algae-like fossils in meteorite fragments that landed in Sri Lanka last year. This is the strongest evidence yet of cometary panspermia — that life on Earth began when a meteorite containing simple organisms landed here, billions of years ago — and, perhaps more importantly, that there’s life elsewhere in the universe.”
Now that is big news…

This is what evolution might have come up with on a world such as Saturn’s moon Titan, Dr Maggie Alderin-Pocock believes. Dr Alderin-Pocock envisages creatures that float through clouds of methane, scooping chemical nutrients into their gaping mouths. The aliens keep themselves aloft by means of dangling onion-like buoyancy bags, and communicate with pulses of light.
