An astrobiologist working at NASA’s Marshall Space Flying Center in Alabama has stated that he found alien life form. In a recently published article in the Journal of Cosmology, Dr. Richard B. Hoover claims to have discovered a preserved alien life form residing inside a meteor.
Dr. Hoover began his study by deducing what type of meteor would be best suited to alien life form. He narrowed his search to the CI class of carbonaceous chrondite meteors. These meteors are rich in water, amino acids, and other organic compounds — a virtual pantry for a microorganism. Picking the most ideal type of CI meteorite — CI1 optimized his chances, but narrowed his pool of available samples. It is believed that only nine such meteorites exist on earth. Dr. Hoover was able to obtain one of the few meteorites. After smashing a piece of the meteorite, he then scanned the result dust and fragments, using scanning-electron microscopes and field emissions electron-scanning microscopes. He found what appeared to be a fossilized bacterium. The identified specimen appears remarkably similar to the bacteria Titanospirillum velox, a sulfur-loving archaebacteria, which was discovered in 1999 mud samples from Spain.
The meteorite was reportedly broken under sterile conditions. Still, some skeptics argue that the meteorite could have been contaminated. The meteorite was collected in the frigid reaches of Antarctica immediately after their observed fall. The fact that they were collected so quickly limits the possibility that indigenous microbes contaminated them. The possibility of atmospheric contamination still remains, though.
Dr. Hoover believes that this is not a case of contamination. He is convinced that he has become the first human to record a scientifically verifiable encounter with an alien being. He states in a recent interview, “I interpret it as indicating that life is more broadly distributed than restricted strictly to the planet Earth. This field of study has just barely been touched — because quite frankly, a great many scientist would say that this is impossible.”
In the published study, Dr. Hoover writes an accompanying note encouraging others to review his work. “Given the controversial nature of his discovery, we have invited 100 experts and have issued a general invitation to over 5,000 scientists from the scientific community to review the paper and to offer their critical analysis. No other paper in the history of science has undergone such a thorough vetting, and never before in the history of science has the scientific community been given the opportunity to critically analyze an important research paper before it is published.”
Dr. David Marais, an astrobiologist at NASA’s AMES Research Center states, “It’s an extraordinary claim, and thus I’ll need extraordinary evidence.”
