Latest Extraterrestrial life Stories
The question of whether there is life on other planets has kept scientists searching for years, but it now appears that the answer has come in variant life forms, likely miniscule microbes, found right here on Earth.
ESA and NASA are inviting scientists from across the world to propose instruments for their joint Mars mission, the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter. Scheduled for launch in 2016.
With NASA's Kepler mission showing the potential to detect Earth-sized objects, habitable moons may soon become science fact.
Scientists rule out the possibility that methane is delivered by meteorites into the Martian atmosphere.
Using more advanced analytical instruments now available, a Johnson Space Center research team has reexamined the 1996 finding that a meteorite contains strong evidence that life may have existed on ancient Mars.
The Catholic Church has come a long way since locking up Galileo for questioning whether the universe revolves around the Earth.
Researchers from the Open University are laying the groundwork for a new equation that could mathematically quantify a habitatâ€™s potential for hosting life, in a similar way to how the Drake equation estimates the number of intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way.
CHAPPAQUA, N.Y., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ET meets Carl Sagan in Out of this World, a new book from Kids Can Press that asks whether there is life somewhere out there in the universe.
In March, NASA launched its Kepler telescope with the hopes of discovering an Earth-like planet that could be hospitable to extraterrestrial life.
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...
