NASA Scientist Proves Extraterrestrial Life Exists

Astrobiologist Professor Richard B Hoover in Antarctica

Professor Richard B Hoover established the NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center Astrobiology Research Group in 1996 to study extremophiles and investigate microfossils in ancient rocks and carbonaceous meteorites. In an interview Hoover told Lee Spiegel of the Huffington Post :

"I am absolutely convinced that life is not restricted to the planet Earth because I have found the remains of lifeforms that are absolutely, conclusively extraterrestrial."

New Analysis of the Murchison Meteorite Reveal the Building Blocks of Life

In research funded by the NASA Astrobiology Institute a new study of microfragments of a meteorite have revealed DNA components and other essential components of life - according to a team of scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Researchers analysing the carbonaceous chondrite meteorites found DNA components and amino acids components during the analysis of the Murchison meteorite - a rock that fell to Earth over Murchison, Victoria, in Australia in September 1969.

Holes in the Heavens

If you look out toward our galaxy the Milky Way you will see an uneven distribution of stars.  In certain parts of the Milky Way, between the stars, things can get a little murky.

In the constellation of Sagittarius for example there are dark patches that become particularly noticeable towards the point of the Galactic Centre. It was the British astronomer William Herschel who, in the 18th Century, described these regions where starlight from distant stars appears to dim as “holes in the heavens”.
