A man is as big as the things that make him mad.

Sigh. Nothing brings out bad commentary faster than a fake scientist. This is not science gone wrong, it is an example of real science correcting pseudo-science as fast as it is published. As for other bagger-kin comments: NASA doesn't have a position on global warming (not their scope); this is not about life in galaxies far, far away, or in other solar systems within the Milky Way, nor in the voids of interstellar space. It is about an ignorant non-biologist and an (I'll say it though it is redundant) unscrupulous publisher

Darn - we were that close to explaining Glenn Beck - a tightly-formed colony of sentient space-bacteria seemed seemed to be a likely premise

NASA is and always has been simply ordered to not allow any science into the open that would "disrupt" religion. Bush even put a hard-core Evangelical at he head of NASA! He was anti-science and on his first day (as reported by various news sources - google it...) he walked in and gave a fire-and-brimstone speech about this "science stuff" now be used to "prove the existence of God and that's that!" It was heinous. Which is why America has to remove - completely - ALL religion. From government, schools, life in general. Let these hard-core idiots practice in their homes and their churches, and keep them OUT of everything. Of course there's life of all kinds out there. And the immediate ridicule says so. The work was published is what is quite suddenly being described as "a rag" and "the lowest rung of science", when just a couple of days ago, scientists were still back-stabbing one another to be published in it. That's what religion gets for being so hard-line about everything. But, the religious have always stooped to the level of lying and suddenly acting as if "we've always said that!" when they never have. They'll do it again. And try to get Evangelicals on board an outward bound craft. Jest so's WE kin convert them heathen ali-ens! If the last thing anyone on earth should do is allow Americans on their soil, same thing goes in space. No humans!

in 1925 pope pious the xII stated that GOD may have started the universe with a big bang and this pope said that it may have life elsewhere in the universe. I find that in this case sciece and religion go hand in hand

See how they start working the shmooz in?... It's kinda how they suddenly had to explain that Cain and Able had married women. From WHERE? I hope a week before the enormous meteors hit, several spaceships appear and an emissary comes out of one, looks around, then at us and says, "Hey! What did you protozoa do to our lovely, lovely wildlife refuge?!" And then they beam up ALL the animals.

Sorry, not all of us believe in religion, or want it around. And we have that right not to have it around us. Even our Founding Fathers knew from examples throughout history and all over the world in their time that religion is a poison. And it kills. Free will, intelligence, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and governments. It has to get out of everything except places of worship and individuals. Perhaps if you took your medication, you wouldn't hear those voices anymore that convince you you're "special" because you can hear a "god"...

Though the proof is yet to come conclusively, but I am convinced that there is life else where. How would a Christian (as I am) explain that our world is like a drop in the ocean when compared to the universe? Won't that beg the question to what purpose has God created all of these? And the answer that it is to show how special we are doesn't cut it because religions five hundred years ago did not even know how vast the cosmos are!
And how would scientitists ignore the statistical certainty that there is life else where? Except if Statistic is no longer consider mathematics or mathematics is longer the language of science. Hoover may be wrong, but his wrong doesn't negate the statistical expectancy that there is life outside of earth, since the earth is made from the same energy of which the cosmos are made of.

Wow what a propaganda piece. There are plenty of well heeled interests that must keep any notion of life existing anywhere but Earth under wraps. We can't have the congregation on Sunday asking any dangerous questions now can we.

When the rest of the planet are finally introduced to the aliens, all will freak out to know that they've been living inside us for a long while...

NASA ceased being a credible source of information a long, long time ago. Remember folks, NASA is under a charter from the DoD and is not an agency 'for the people'. I would highly recommend those interested in the possibility of ET look into the Brookings Report: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brookings_Report

Why else would NASA have commissioned such a study? NASA is also the same agency that has admitted to altering photos and videos of space & moon for the purposes of "national security". Several of our most heroic and admired astronauts have witnessed very strange events that NASA continues to deny to this date. I'm not saying any of this is proof of ET, but rather proof that NASA is pulling the wool over all of our eyes.

There is no place for secrecy and censorship in science - no place. Good post.

Until there's a one world economic system where Its Personhood can profit from exporting jobs to other planets-- will It introduce the rest of the world to 'their' Personhoods... 'til then it's too complicated to control.

I hate to break it to NASA,I don't know if it's s t u p i t y or it's they're just trying to cover up they fact is we're the aliens,there is superior beings in the universe that have billions years advance on us in a the universe that is 14 billions years old and our own part of the universe is 4 billion years old,to say we are the only intelligent life is arrogant and humans have this we are special mentality,that is totally luducris,we're a product from those beings that have a few billion years jump on us in intelligence,that created us in experiment,and they are either here or come back through wormhole that know about so it doesn't take long, to see how their little project is evolving which is us and we're evolving into extinction cause the finite resources this planet has is being depleted at fast pace big time.

What is in dispute in this case is one researcher's claim to have found evidence of alien single-celled life in a meteorite. This article does not even mention the possibility of alien life in the universe. Even if it did, we have absolutely no evidence as yet that aliens exist. All we have are conjecture and urban legends. While I personally think that life has evolved on other planets in our universe, I cannot claim that belief as fact until there is actual physical evidence to support that belief. Likewise, we have no evidence that aliens have visited us (and the theory of relativity makes such a visit extremely unlikely given the vast reaches of space). You cite wormholes as a way for rapid space travel. However, wormholes themselves only exist in science fiction or in untested physics hypotheses without one shred of physical evidence to support their existence.

Their is evidence that some of the human DNA ,is not from this planet,

Look---it's gotta be out there SOMEWHERE. I'm just not that much of an anthropomocentrist to be skeptical about sentient life existing elsewhere.

These are the same scientists who sell the Global Warming theory too and just lost another launch in the Pacific the other day. Totally unreliable.

That's impossible, even for a computer!

That launch was done by a private, for-profit corporation. I bet they got paid anyway. This 'scientist' has nothing more to do with climate scientists than he does oncologists or ornithologists or ophthalmologists.

Funny, people like to d!s scientists when they are not saving lives through medical discoveries or giving birth to octo-moms.

NASA's climate research is done at the Goddard Institute at Columbia University in NYC. Get a clue and do some research.
01:08 PM on 03/08/2011
sadly i don't think we'll ever find life on another world except maybe on some moon in the solar system even then it would be like an amoeba just due to the huge distances that said life would have to travel to get here

Ye have little faith. Given the size of the cosmos, there is almost certainly life elsewhere. And if that is not true, it really makes what we are very special indeed. If only we knew that?
01:31 PM on 03/08/2011
i don't doubt that there is life, I just doubt that they will ever be able to stop by and say hi because of the distances that need to covered which physics doesn't allow a living organism to go to because they wouldn't live long enough to get there even traveling at light speed (which is impossible because any object with mass would need infinite energy to move its infinite mass that fast)
01:01 PM on 03/08/2011
I just heard the evidence will be shipped to the creation museum in Kentucky for even further analysis. The peer review will be replaced with the more in-depth and stable method of finding out how well the evidence parallels the literal interpretation of Genesis. Results should be back in minutes...
