Over $200,000 in donations from fans have helped place SETI Institute's search for alien life back on track.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA-funded researchers have found more evidence meteorites can carry DNA components created in space.
NASA scientists are seeing new evidence that suggests traces of water on Mars are under a thin varnish of iron oxide, or rust, similar to conditions found on desert rocks in California's Mojave Desert.
A top Russian astronomer said on Monday that he expects humanity to encounter alien civilizations within the next 20 years.
LONDON, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As NASA's Kepler space telescope detects hundreds of star systems with multiple planets, the search for life in the universe is firmly "on".
Reptilians are depicted as reptile humanoid creatures that are used in science fiction, ufology, and in conspiracy theories. Sometimes reptilians are also called reptoids, reptiloids, or draconians. One of the first alleged contacts with a reptilian occurred in 1967 in Ashland, Nebraska.

Carl Edward Sagan (November 9, 1934 - December 20, 1996) was an American astronomer who pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and science in general. He is less well known for his skepticism. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Sagan attended the University of Chicago, where he received a bachelor's degree (1955) and a master's degree (1956) in physics, before earning his doctorate (1960) in astronomy and astrophysics. He taught at Harvard University...
Xenobiology -- Xenobiology (or exobiology, or astrobiology) is the term for a speculative field within biology which considers the possibility of, and possible nature of, extraterrestrial life. It also necessarily includes the concept of artificial life, since any life form might naturally evolve elsewhere, could conceivably come out of a laboratory using a future technology. It might be difficult to tell whether a truly strange life form had in fact arisen in space, or was designed much...
