Simulating possible chemical processes in the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, a UA-led planetary research team found amino acids and nucleotide bases in the mix -- the most important ingredients of life on Earth
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Media representatives are invited to attend a NASA symposium on Thursday, Oct. 14, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. EDT, where world-renowned scientists will address past, present, and future activities in the search for signs of life in the universe.
Today NASAâ€™s Astrobiology Program addresses three fundamental questions: How does life begin and evolve? Is there life beyond Earth and, if so, how can we detect it?
The alien life forms that we are searching for might not be "life forms" after all--they could well be sentient machines.
Bacteria discovered in an oxygen-starved area of Argentina could demonstrate how life could exist on Mars or other planets.
â€˜Benford beaconsâ€™ concept could refocus search for signs of intelligent extraterrestrial life.
One might find that Jupiter's moon Europa to have extraterrestrial life after fossil-hunting on the icy surface.
Jupiter's moon Io could be a potential target to look for extraterrestrial life.
The ongoing search for evidence of past or present life on Mars includes efforts to identify organic compounds such as proteins in Martian soil, but their absence to date remains a mystery.
A development model of the Mars Rover, called Bridget, is on display at the University Friday, June 4, providing invited schoolchildren as well as staff and students with an exciting glimpse into the shape of things to come.
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.

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...
Astrobiology is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published monthly by Mary Ann Liebert Inc. It is the official journal of the Astrobiology Society. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Sherry L. Cady, PhD (Portland State University, Department of Geology). Astrobiology is the leading international journal for astronomers, biologists, chemists, geologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, and planetary scientists designed to advance our understanding of life’s origin, evolution, and...
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...
