Is There Really Life Beyond Earth? What We Know So Far

Mystery over the proof of the existence of extraterrestrials, Unidentified Atmospheric Phenomena (UAP), and extraterrestrial life has grown over the past few years with photos and videos prepared by NASA that sometimes show tiny objects, glowing triangles, and door-like formations.

Scientists recently detected a signal coming from approximately 3 billion light-years from Earth. The researchers, who published their findings in the journal Nature, say this new component of fast radio bursts (FRB) called FRB 20190520B is supposed to be close to another unknown object, which is emitting a weaker radio signal.

Similar previous findings on outer space prompted a US Congressional hearing on the UAP last month. Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray testified on May 17 that UAP reports are “repeated” and have been on the rise for more than a decade. Bray also said there have been at least 11 “cad incidents” between US military aircraft and the UAP. But, what other evidence has extraterrestrials seen recently, and has there been evidence of extraterrestrial life?

In a video posted on NASA’s Instagram page, astrobiologist Dr. Lindsay Hess said that although NASA has not found evidence of life yet, there have been traces of microbial life everywhere on the planet, And we’re just beginning to find habitable places, that is, Mars, one beyond Earth.

NASA is constantly searching for traces of extraterrestrial life. The US space agency has sent five spacecraft and four landers to Mars. Also, their orbits are equipped with high-resolution cameras, which continue to look at the surface of Mars. However, only a small part of Mars has been discovered so far. And the more they discovered, the more they learned about the different environments for life to thrive.”

Hess quoted author Carl Sagan who famously said, “The universe is a very big place. If it were only about us, it was nothing but a terrible waste of space.”

“So, we’ll keep looking.”

Here are the recent findings regarding the proof of extraterrestrial life:

Mars’ door

A grainy image of a door-like formation taken by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on May 7 this year has gone viral on social media. Netizens were quick to conclude that it was some kind of strange entrance, indicating that it shows the presence of life.

A Facebook post showing an image of Curiosity said, “NASA has released this image from the Mars rover of a clear entrance to the surface of Mars.” Later, the post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat fake news, according to a report in Poynter. Space officials and Mars experts have confirmed that the formation is an unremarkable, naturally occurring fissure that matches many other fissures found around the planet.

Poynter quotes William Dietrich, professor of Earth and planetary sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, as saying that the observed entrance is caused by the movement of the rocks.

NASA also said, from Curiosity’s Twitter, that it might look like a small door, but it’s actually a natural geological feature. “It might look like a door just because your brain is trying to make sense of the unknown. (This is called pareidolia),” she tweeted.

Alien Life Guide Scale

NASA scientists recently published a research paper in Nature that proposed a new measure of evidence for alien life, which attempts to look beyond “binary” research — life or no life — and express it more precisely in terms of agreed scientific uncertainty.

The scale includes seven levels, which are subject to change depending on the type of environment involved and how the scientific community responds. This scale also applies to discoveries from outside the solar system. NASA has said that the exoplanets, the planets outside our solar system, are believed to outnumber 300 billion stars in the Milky Way.

“So far, we’ve based public opinion on the belief that there are only two choices: Either it’s life or it’s not life,” study co-author Marie Vojtek said in a statement. “We need a better way to share the excitement of our discoveries and show how each discovery builds on the next, so that we can get the public and other scientists on the journey.”

This echoes Hess’ comment on the search for “small” evidence of spirits, such as the presence of microbial life.

alien spacecraft

A British hacker claimed to have hacked into NASA files and viewed thousands of images stored on the space agency’s system, including one of an alien cigar-shaped spacecraft, the Mirror reports. He says he found the photos between February 2001 and March 2002 when they broke into 97 US government computers.

56-year-old hacker Gary McKinnon claims that NASA is hiding evidence of extraterrestrials and is “shocked by the amount of images that have been hidden away”. When word spread about his allegations, he was arrested in 2002 and also in 2005 at the request of the United States and authorities said the cost of fixing the problems he had caused amounted to more than $700,000.

It was agreed in 2006 to extradite McKinnon from the UK, but this led to years of pleas and a campaign to prevent it.

McKinnon had heard that satellite images of former NASA employee Donna Hare were frequently omitted from UFO evidence at the Johnson Space Center. When he tried to check Hare’s account, he claimed to have seen four volumes named: Filtered, Unfiltered, Processed and Raw. However, he was only able to get one image – a cigar-shaped image of the spacecraft – from one of the folders due to poor internet connection.

NASA has not confirmed his claims.
