Ex­perts check alien life claim

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A NASA sci­en­tist’s claim that he found tiny fos­sils of alien life in the rem­nants of a me­te­orite has stirred both ex­cite­ment and scep­ti­cism, and is be­ing closely re­viewed by 100 ex­perts. Richard Hoover’s pa­per, along with pic­tures of the mi­cro­scopic earth­worm-like crea­tures, were pub­lished late on Fri­day in the peer­re­viewed Jour­nal of Cos­mol­ogy. Hoover sliced open frag­ments of sev­eral types of car­bona­ceous chon­drite me­te­orites and found bac­te­ria-like crea­tures that he be­lieves orig­i­nated be­yond earth and were not in­tro­duced here af­ter the me­te­orites.
