Some astrobiologists are upbeat to have discovered what they call ‘living balloon’ that once carried a microscopic alien organism, or neutrino, in the form of spectral-like ‘ghost particle’ from outer space, which points at alien life.
Researchers at the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology said the ghost particle collected from stratosphere is a biological organism and hence it proves a link to possible alien life.
Buckingham varsity researcher Milton Wainwright says that the particle resembling a chiffon scarf measuring the width of a human hair appears like a fading ghost and collected from the stratosphere, is a biological organism.
“We can speculate that in its space environment this ‘ghost particle’ is a living balloon which an alien microscopic organism might inflate with lighter than air gasses allowing it to float in the air or the seas of an unknown space environment”, Wainwright told the Daily Express.
The researcher showing the ghost particle resembling more like a collapsed balloon was never found on Earth earlier. They appear on the in an absolutely pristine condition with no contamination like pollen, grass or pollution particles, he noted.
“Unless a means of lifting them from Earth exists which selectively sieves them out from other Earth-derived debris then they must be incoming from space,” he said.
He also said that they produce tiny dents or impact craters when they land on the sampler so there is almost no doubt of their space origin.
Both particles were found and collected by balloons sent into the stratosphere, 27 km above the Earth’s atmosphere, to examine the space debris and pulled back by researchers.
This is in addition to collecting organism from a spacecraft sent to the ISS, which too returned with the proof beyond doubt that alien life does exist but the form is still unclear.
