Scientists at a British university say they are confident they found evidence of life that originated in space.
Researchers at the University of Sheffield sent a scientific balloon into the stratosphere often described as the edge of space during a Perseid meteor shower, which collected small organisms they believe are not from Earth.
Most people will assume that these biological particles must have just drifted up to the stratosphere from Earth, but it is generally accepted that a particle of the size found cannot be lifted from Earth to heights of, for example, 27km. The only known exception is by a violent volcanic eruption, none of which occurred within three years of the sampling trip, professor Milton Wainwright said in a statement.

Yeah, well the Brits (Chamberlain) told us 75 years ago the Hitler was a pretty nice guy, too.
Great point Ol’ Chap!
do you know how many volcanoes in history could have put stuff this high? plenty.
this is such junk science.
Exactly! Who's to say it wasn't blasted into the upper atmosphere from some volcanic eruption. I've read they've discovered all kinds of critters living deep underground and seen in underwater "smokers" (submarine hot water vents).
Well, your balloon got up there.
That was one way I was thinking it may have gotten into the upper atmosphere as well. At the very very least, it needs additional study.
Don’t forget the Earth is flat and rinsing your teeth with urine brightens them.
“Oh, great...more Democrats.”
They should be allowed a path to citizenship. They are just undocumented (and uncatalogued life).
Daggone it. Which one of you guys has the Dennis Kucinich watch? I keep telling you, never, never let them take a tissue sample.
“We are in space.....”
Space—the place where stuff is found.
A British University? Doesn’t it have a name?
“Open University?” It’s on Telly!
The picture in the link show the particle size as 15 microns (0.0006" or one hundredth of a sixteenth of inch) or so max. A particle that small is easily carried in the wind even at very low velocity. In short the statement is nonsense.
Negative. It started out virulent and became benign when it mutated. Quick! Shut off the nuclear auto destruct!
Oh c'mon. What's more likely, that the biological paricles found in earth's stratosphere originated from, you know, earth, of that they sailed light years across the cold void of outer space and ended up in earth's stratosphere? Obviously, they sailed light years across the cold void of outer space and ended up in earth's stratosphere - - it's "generally accepted". Like "global cooling I mean warming", whatever.
While the present study does not conclusively establish the extra-terrestrial origin of microorganisms,....”
I wondered what the Global Warming scientist were up to now that the Global Warming scam is falling apart .....
Never wash your hair in a meteor shower.
Reid, Obama, Pelosi and the democrat party may be evolved forms of this space virus.
