Did life come to the earth from the outer space???
We sometimes must have wonder about exactly where from the life came in the earth’s surface. There were many such questions to think about, as for example, whether earth is the only habitable place in the universe or there are few more planets where living beings could stay or even does life exist in the outer space too. All these have been a long time debate for the scientists. But now they can shed more lights on these topics. Recent studies have found that life may exist beyond our earth.
Buckingham University and the University of Sheffield researchers’ have found an alien type living organism in our stratosphere. They claimed the organism as microscopic and its structure is like that of an alien. This organism has been found 16 miles above Chester and Wakefield in England.

To examine this thoroughly scientists also had sent a special alcohol swabbed balloon (to avoid the sample contamination) from Chester on 31 July 2013 to the earth’s stratosphere to collect few samples. The balloon was there in the atmosphere for approximately 17 minutes and also did collect samples. It took samples which were there in the range between 13 to 16 miles of earth’s altitude. After taking the samples the balloon landed near Wakefield. Those samples then were taken out from the balloon and were examined under electronic microscope.
After examining those samples thoroughly, scientists found a fragment of single cell algae named diatom. They claimed that the cell might have come from the outer space by the meteorites. After this, they came to a point that there might be a possibility of life in the outer space too. This even is not the first time scientists have found microscopic life in our atmosphere.
However, many scientists have claimed that this fragment has been carried out to the earth’s atmosphere by some natural process or by storm. Prof. Milton Wainwright, department of molecular biology and biotechnology in University of Sheffield carried out an experiment and said that most people would have assumed that these biological particles must have just drifted up to the stratosphere from the earth. But it is generally accepted that a particle of the size found cannot be lifted up from the earth to a height of, for example, 27km. The only known exception is by a violent volcanic eruption, none of which occurred within three years in the sampling trip. In the absence of such mechanism by which large particles like these can be transported to the stratosphere, we can only conclude that the biological entities have been originated from space itself. Our conclusion after this became strong enough that life continually is arriving to our earth from the space and it is also not restricted to this planet only as well as it almost certainly did not even originate here too.
Now scientists again are planning to send balloon to the atmosphere during the Haley’s Comet Meteorite Shower. They want to carry out further tests on these samples to check the isotope ration to know whether these samples are really from the earth or they came here from the outer space.
