Speculations of alien life have always kept resurfacing for decades now. May be in the near future, scientists will be successful to find and contact aliens quite easily. One such supposed close contact happened quite recently.
Researchers from the University of Cardiff have said that the European Space Agency’s craft may have landed on a comet that could easily support alien life. The comet possessed an organic and rich black crust that possibly had organic life under its icy crust.
Comets with such characteristics could have what is called “extremophiles.” Such organisms even live on earth through the harshest conditions and still survive. Comets like the 67p do have the required conditions for such life forms, according to astrobiologist and astronomer Chandra Wickramasinghe from the Cardiff University and his colleague Max Willis.
To support this theory, the Rosetta craft that was orbiting the comet has even picked up samples of a strange organic material that look like viral particles. Hopefully, this will be a breakthrough for mankind that will only lead to bigger and better findings to increase our understanding of the universe.
