Deadly Serious, they think they've found the first evidence of extra-terrestrial life. Information IS reputable.

 ISSUE: June 19, 2006

                   

                   Scientist says he has the first confirmed evidence of alien life!

                  

                  Summary - “it’s life Jim, but not as we know it.” Sound
familiar? … Scientist speculates replicating particles without
DNA hitched a ride on a comet or meteor, mixed with rain clouds
and hit the Earth.

                  

                  They're red, cell-like, replicate easily in water superheated to
nearly 600 degrees Fahrenheit and, according to the physicist who
isolated them from mysterious blood-coloured rains that fell on
India in 2001, they have no DNA – which is why the scientist
believes he may have the first confirmed evidence of alien life.

                  

                  Story – Recently found cell-like structures could be microbes
from space. Godfrey Louis presented evidence for his hypothesis in
the peer-reviewed journal, Astrophysics and Space Science. Louis
works as a solid-state physicist at Mahatma Gandhi University.

                  

                  Louis isolated thick-walled, red-coloured cell-like structures
from water collected during the "red rain" that fell in Kerala,
India, from July to September, 2001.

                  

                  For a two-month period, sporadic heavy downpours occurred in which
the rain was red in colour due to small red particles held in
suspension, initially theorised to be spores of a common lichen in
India. Analysis of the isolated sediment, however, found the
presence of aluminium – an element not usually found in living
cells – and much lower levels of phosphorus than would be
expected if the particles were biological in origin.

                  

                  Algae and fungus, which make up lichen, have DNA, Louis said,
noting that his strange red "cells" do not. Further, blood cells
have thin walls, unlike his microbes, and quickly die when exposed
to water and air – and they are unable to replicate. Louis'
particles thrive in water at temperatures approaching 600 degrees
Fahrenheit – far beyond the 250 degrees known to be the upper
limit for life – and they reproduce themselves.

                  

                  "We've already got some stunning pictures of these cells sliced in
the middle," said astronomer Chandra Wickramasing, a scientist at
Cardiff University in Wales. "We see them budding, with little
daughter cells

                  

                  Louis speculated the cell-like particles could be extraterrestrial
bacteria transported to Earth on a comet or meteor that broke
apart in the upper atmosphere and fell suspended in rain drops.
Wickramasing's interest in the red structures is related to the
modern theory of panspermia – the idea that Earth was seeded
with life from space – which he co-proposed in 1974.

                  

                  If it's true that life was introduced by comets four billion years
ago one would expect that micro-organisms are still injected into
our environment from time to time. This could be one of those
events.

Okay...now thats freaky...makes me wonder if we're going to be invaded *k8t looks out her window*

Invaded from the AIR! how so very not cool lol. we spend all this time looking for alien life and it appears the aliens are finding us just fine.

This is because they know where we are! also the governments of the world keep sending out flaming neon signpost. Anyway thinking from a different viewpoint, they could be family. Ours!
