Latest Extraterrestrial life Stories
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".
Astronomers are now listening to the skies for the existence of ETs using a massive radio telescope in West Virginia to scan for signs of alien life.
A new isotopic analysis of meteorites that have been in storage on Earth for quite some time points to a very reasonable scientific conclusion that Mars once had sea beds that were warm, wet and rich in organic chemicals.
The SETI Institute has put its $50 million Allen Telescope Array (ATA) into hibernation because the organization is unable to attract the $5m investment it needs to fund operation of the vast radio dishes that search the universe for extraterrestrial life.
A team from the Austrian Space Forum will arrive back in Austria today following a week testing its analogue space suit in the semi-desert of Rio Tinto in Spain.
Planetary scientists claim that all life on Earth could be descended from organisms that originated on Mars which were carried over by meteorites.
Claims from a NASA scientist that alien microbes were discovered in meteorites collected decades ago are being disputed by scientists at the US space agency, who say that there is no empirical evidence that the objects contained bacteria from outer space.
A new report suggests that life forms in the universe are widespread and that microscopic life on Earth may have come from extra-solar sources, perhaps hitching a ride on space rocks like comets, moons and other astral bodies.
BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While the discoveries of the Kepler mission have tripled the number of known planets in our galaxy, one man has taken the questions about alien life to a higher power.
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. Police officer Herbert Schirmer claimed to have been abducted and taken aboard a UFO by reptile-like humanoids that had a winged serpent emblem on the left side of their chests. David Icke, a British...
The Flatwoods monster is claimed to be an unidentified species of either a terrestrial cryptid or an extraterrestrial being. It was reported being seen in the town of Flatwoods, West Virginia, on September 12, 1952 on some land owned by a local farmer, G. Bailey Fisher. The witnesses include two brothers, Edward and Fred May, their mother Kathleen, a friend of the boys, Tommy Hyer, along with Neil Nunley, Ronnie Shaver, and national guardsman Eugene Lemon. It was described as being ten...

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...
