The scientists sent a balloon 27km into the stratosphere, which came back carrying small biological organisms which they believe can only have originated from space.
Professor Milton Wainwright told stated that he was “95% convinced” that the organisms did not originate from earth.
“By all known information that science has, we know that they must be coming in from space. There is no known mechanism by which these life forms can achieve that height. As far as we can tell from known physics, they must be incoming.”
Some of the samples were captured covered with cosmic dust, adding further credence to the idea that they have originated from space.
