Exclusive: NASA Scientist Claims Evidence of Alien Life on Meteorite
fox news ^ | 3/4/2011 | Fox News

Posted on 03/05/2011 10:27:15 AM PST by Dallas59



We are not alone in the universe -- and alien life forms may have a lot more in common with life on Earth than we had previously thought.

That's the stunning conclusion one NASA scientist has come to, releasing his groundbreaking revelations in a new study in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology.

Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an astrobiologist with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, has traveled to remote areas in Antarctica, Siberia, and Alaska, amongst others, for over ten years now, collecting and studying meteorites. He gave FoxNews.com early access to the out-of-this-world research, published late Friday evening in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology. In it, Hoover describes the latest findings in his study of an extremely rare class of meteorites, called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites -- only nine such meteorites are known to exist on Earth.

Can he prove that the meteorites are actually extra-planetary? IE: Are these “rocks” part of another planet or were they flung from the Earth millions of years ago due to some event and then after a period of time in space landed back on Earth? Just axing...

Here’s the thing. Those C11 meteorite particles may be originally FROM EARTH. Chunks of matter get expelled from our atmosphere, just as from the other planets, and travel around until they impact something. Some of them could travel for billions of years, and then return to impact on Earth.

That’s not to say that the alternative (subject of thread) is impossible either. The entire Universe is Life, so I don’t doubt we will find ‘life’ in many unexpected places.

Since most scientists now believe the Moon from formed from a chunk of the Earth after a collision with another stellar object/planet, we should be able to find similar fossils on the Moon. Shouldn’t we?

Ah yea, ok, I might not be a trained scientist, but, how did this little critter survive the heat from the meteor coming through the atmosphere, huh? And how does he know it’s not some kind of contamination from earth? Now if he’d found this in outer space that might be a whole other can of worms, if you get my drift ;)

If the meteor is coming straight down, it would only be subjected to high temps for a few seconds, which wouldn't penetrate deeply into the rock.

How long before they announce it's "gay", or "muslim" or proves "Global Warming"?

Just asking...you know it's coming.

Who wants to bet that any contact with alien life will be used to justify and promote homosexuality, even if it's not even remotely associated to the situation or circumstances?

His cup of utter self-loating overfloweth.

How anyone could look at themselves in the mirror and not be utterly disgusted at something like that is a testament to the depth of his mental illness and self-hatred.

It didn't. What's in the rock are fossilized remains, or at least that's what the scientist claims.
