Alien Life Discovered Reminiscent of the Panspermia Theory

Alien Life Cell

Proof of alien life is found in cells floating in Earth’s atmosphere, though this is not new news as it is reminiscent of the Panspermia Theory. In 2010, British Professor, Chandra Wickramasinghe, an astrobiologist of Cardiff University, theorized that alien life is the genesis for human life, also known as the panspermia theory. Such a theory was supported by the findings of living matter found in the dust clouds in the stratosphere. Wickramasinghe suggests that alien microbes were spread to different planets, including Earth, by way of falling comets. He argues that the giant clouds found woven in the Milky Way are living molecules.

Today the theory may have been solidified as the proof of alien life cells were taken from a meteor shower that happened recently. Microscopic pictures show a piece of a diatom, which is a type of algae.
