Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, a 74-year-old astrobiologist and his team from the University of Sheffield believe to have found evidence of alien life after sending a balloon 27 km into the stratosphere. The specifically designed balloon was sent into the atmosphere above Chester during the annual Perseid meteor shower.
On its way back to Earth, the balloon captured small biological organisms on the sterile microscope slides. The scientist’s stated that they represent alien life forms and could have arrived only from space.
Wickramasinghe claims that the ‘seeds of life’ have been transported from one planet to the other by meteors which in turn suggest that life exists in other areas of the galaxy as well.
