Latest Extraterrestrial life Stories
Researchers in Europe released a new report on Wednesday that suggests the geyser seen on the surface of Saturnâ€™s moon Enceladus could be fed by a salty ocean underneath the surface.
Astrobiology Magazine's new projects and collaborations promise to introduce NASA to an even wider and more diverse audience NEW YORK, June 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is there life on other planets? What are the latest findings on Mars? Astrobiology Magazine -- www.astrobio.net -- has been reporting the latest and most exciting developments in science related to astrobiology since 2000.
A lunar eclipse helped a group of international scientists take a snapshot of earthâ€™s chemical fingerprint, which could help to identify planets most similar to earth where life may be thriving.
Astronomers using the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) William Herschel Telescope (WHT) on La Palma have confirmed an effective way to search the atmospheres of planets for signs of life, vastly improving our chances of finding alien life outside our solar system.
Scientists have developed a new cleaning protocol for space hardware, such as the scoops of Mars rovers, which could be used on future "Search for Life" missions on other planets.
GREENBELT, Md., May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA-sponsored scientists looking back at Earth with the Deep Impact/EPOXI mission have developed a method to indicate whether Earth-like alien (extrasolar) worlds have oceans.
Since the early 1990s astronomers have discovered more than 300 planets orbiting stars other than our sun, nearly all of them gas giants like Jupiter.
WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A NASA-funded study indicates that an intense asteroid bombardment nearly 4 billion years ago may not have sterilized the early Earth as completely as previously thought.
Questions such as "How to search for weird alien life?" and "Would Earth microbes survive if delivered to the surface of Mars?" are addressed in articles that are part of the collection of reports presented in the current issue of Astrobiology.
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...
