Dr. Richard Hoover, a highly respected scientist claims he has found evidence of alien life in a study published in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology.
You might think that the evidence came from a big headed and creepy looking alien just like what we see on movies, but it’s not. It is actually the fossilized remains of micro-organisms found inside a meteorite, that may suggests that life outside earth exists.
Hoover, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, analyzed the meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites by breaking it apart and by using powerful microscopes. Inside, he found fossils of micro-organisms, which he says can also be found on earth.
The study becomes so controversial and drew widespread criticism that Dr. Rudy Schild Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Cosmology invited experts and scientists to review the paper and give their comments which will be published on on March 7 through March 10, 2011.
“Dr. Richard Hoover is a highly respected scientist and astrobiologist with a prestigious record of accomplishment at NASA. Given the controversial nature of his discovery, we have invited 100 experts and have issued a general invitation to over 5000 scientists from the scientific community to review the paper and to offer their critical analysis. Our intention is to publish the commentaries, both pro and con, alongside Dr. Hoover’s paper. In this way, the paper will have received a thorough vetting, and all points of view can be presented. No other paper in the history of science has undergone such a thorough analysis, and no other scientific journal in the history of science has made such a profoundly important paper available to the scientific community, for comment, before it is published. We believe the best way to advance science, is to promote debate and discussion,” Schild wrote.
