There are more viruses… in space!


Leading scientist Professor Paul Davies recently suggested that, if we were to find life somewhere in the universe, we would most likely also uncover new, alien diseases. His claim comes after a team of Cambridge scientists discovered a new kind of habitable exoplanet – called a hycean planet – on which they could uncover signs of life in the next two to three years. “Viruses actually form part of the web of life,” said Davies, “I think without viruses, there may be no sustained life on planet Earth.”
