Ya i know that the headline is a tad misleading, but if you were expecting to see a picture of ET then you deserve to be misled. Britsh scientists have for the first time revealed images of organisms not found on planet Earth. The ‘biomorphs’ were discovered on a sterile weatherballoon sent into the stratosphere and according to the researchers “We can only conclude that the biological entities originated from space.” The findings in the Journal of Cosmology go on to say “Our conclusion is that life is continually arriving to Earth from space”, “Life is not restricted to this planet and it almost certainly did not originate here”.
And what does our little space guy look like…
If you squint you can almost make out a finger trying to extend to the stars struggling to make an ET phone home gesture. Cue…the Close Encounters theme music.
Ok in all seriousness…the scientists have made a pretty significant discovery.
“Further tests are being conducted on the organisms. If fellow researchers agree with the study and are able to replicate it, Wainwright says, “we have to completely change our view of biology and evolution.” [Mashable]
