/ Alien life found! Sheffield University claims
Get your head round that!
well it's hardly proof is it, what they need to do is actually find life somewhere in space where it couldn't have come from earth.
A second best would be proving that some life can live in space for extended periods but it still wouldn't prove it was alien, it could have originated on earth still.
The first couple of sentences contain all you want to know. "could"
That said we see aliens walk down into the village every day. So fat & gross I don't believe they can have come from this planet.
If there is intelligent life found in Sheffield it MUST have come from somewhere else,,
(sorry sue couldn't resist it)

The Journal of Cosmology isn't exactly a well respected publication.

What do you have to say about the scientific theory and method mentioned in the article?
There's far too little information in the article to judge. In such an experiment everything depends on the controlling of contamination, and there is very little about that. Also, the discussion of whether earthly life can get high in the stratosphere is totally inadequate.
Note, also, that the "Journal of Cosmology" is a joke/crank publication that no-one takes seriously, and that the authors include Chandra Wickramasinghe, who went off the deep end long ago.
I knew who wrote that article before I'd even opened the thread. My first thought about it was "I can't believe they gave Milton a chair". He was always going on about such things in the coffee room, he even lectured on it when I was an undergrad.
You should have heard Sky News report on it... "They have found, Stuff. This Stuff is really important.."
Milton Wainwright is also notoriously mental used to do all kind of crazy experiments involving bacteria and microphones.
Isn't this the guy who claims to find alien life in meteorites every couple of years?
I call bullshit.
Plus if they found a diatom that pretty much proves terrestrial contamination?
