    Nope, we've had earth bacteria survive in space though. The old ones where they thought they had found Martian nematodes turned out to be the gold plating they had to use on electron microscopes back then.

    Pretty wild stuff. I'll be interested to see what the 100 other experts have to say about the report.

    Most of us knew beforehand we are not alone, however I want to see some highly intelligent alien life as long as it isn't some tentacle monster that wants to do everything under the sun to us.

    I'd rather see intelligent human life, it seems to have become somewhat rare of late.

    someone will refute this. its propaganda, the government cannot let us know that life exists outside of earth. people can't handle it. i guarantee someone will come forward saying this is not bacteria, and then everyone will agree and it will pass.

    Nah, I refuse to believe that, all alien life aren't like Kyubey who want to destroy us all. I think most alien life are friendly and would love to interact with us. I just hope there are hot alien chicks like Lala Deviluke from To Love Ru.

    How could you know this without ever seeing extraterrestrials or having evidence of their existence?


    In my opinion, this is very interesting (who wouldn't think this though). I like to entertain myself by thinking there are other planets with life that have evolved similar to our organisms. That would be awesome to discover.

    Actually, You are correct. I recall an article a few years back about evidence of bacteria being found on the moon. and i believe on mars as well.


    How could you all not believe in alien life? there's more galaxies out there than we even know about, and cellular life evolves and adapts to its living situation (Hotter, Colder, Wetter, Drier). However, Civilized Life is quiet different. How many species evolved to the point of intelligence of ours? Just us. there are so many different species out there that have potential and maybe SOMEDAY over the years, will be demanding equal rights. lol ^^ So the chances of both life being on other planets, and that life being intelegent, is unknown, however, the chance of life, intelegence, and contact, in my opinion, isnt going to happen. =[

    Maybe they'll farm it and create a new seasoning for rich snobs.

    And then the bacteria will overtake their bodies and we'll all be killed.

    Anyone here read Deception Point by Dan Brown? The book is pretty much the same thing as this.

    Right behind you
    I'm still highly skeptical of this report... like the one person said, for extraordinary claims you need extraordinary evidence. Many people have claimed to find exofossils before, and every single one of them was proven false. So I'm not really holding my breath on this one.

    In response to Vash, I don't think refuting this as anything to do with government propaganda, that's just conspiracy nonsense. I think refuting this has more to do with people being overeager to see what really isn't there, which has been the case of every single one of these claims dating back hundreds of years.

    Could life exist somewhere else in the universe? Possibly, there's nothing that prevents it from happening per se. The 121 factors so far identified for having life develop could certainly exist elsewhere with the sheer size of the universe. But again, that's a double edged sword - the sheer size of the universe makes it exceedingly hard to find at the same time, even if it is out there.

    This is perhaps the most important part of the article:

    “Maybe life w?? seeded ?n earth — ?t developed ?n comets f?r example, ?n? ???t landed here wh?n th??? things w?r? hitting th? very early Earth,” Shostak speculated. “It w???? suggest, well, life didn’t really b???n ?n th? Earth, ?t b???n ?? th? solar system w?? forming.”

    Give up if that's what you want, but the rest of us humans won't go down without a fight.

    I pity you, being born without the #tigerblood.
