Latest Extraterrestrial life Stories
When NASA's Kepler telescope rockets into the night sky on Friday, March 6, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, two University of California, Berkeley, astronomers - key members of the Kepler team - will be watching its fading contrail, hoping that the telescope will reveal Earth's and humanity's place in the universe.
Data from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) suggest the discovery of ancient springs in the Vernal Crater, sites where life forms may have evolved on Mars.
NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Feb.
The desire to contact intelligent life on other planets is much older than the UFO craze and the SETI movement.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A team of NASA and university scientists has achieved the first definitive detection of methane in the atmosphere of Mars.
NASA TVâ€™s broadcast on Thursday confirmed that Mars is, indeed, an active planet in our solar system, as the first definitive detection of methane gas has been released into the red planetâ€™s atmosphere.
If aliens from another planet sent a probe to Earth in search of life, their most promising target would be the tropics. Most likely, if we find life elsewhere in our solar system, weâ€™ll find it in ice.
Scientists could learn about Martian water life by plumbing a spring in an iron ore mine in Minnesota's Iron Range, University of Minnesota researchers say. The researchers say microorganisms in the lowest levels of the spring could be a boon for scientists interested in studying possible life on Mars, the St.
As scientists search for life on Mars, they should take a close look at rock varnish, according to a paper in the current issue of the "Journal of Geophysical Research."
Scientists are expanding the search for extraterrestrial life -- and they've set their sights on some very unearthly planets.
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.

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...
