Glacial biomarkers can help in search for Extraterrestrial Life

Detecting bio markers in glacial lakes on Earth could teach astro-biologists to detect evidence for life on other planets, and also reveal the properties of the environment of that planet.

“Once a microbe dies, different physio chemical factors – such as humidity, temperature, oxygen, or the presence of metals – affect the degradation or chemical alteration of its structures and molecular components,” said Victor Parro, lead author, from Centro de Astrobiología, in Madrid, Spain. explore more

Insufficiency of Phosphorus means no Extraterrestrial life on the planet

Dr. Jane Greaves and Dr. Phil Cigan’s  research shows that there is insufficiency of Phosphorus in our Cosmos. These Cardiff University Astronomers believes that phosphorus is essential part of existence of Extraterrestrial life, if any exoplanet shows signs of insufficiency of it then it could be very difficult for extra terrestrial life to originate on that exoplanet.

Radioactive decay could give energy to extraterrestrial life in cold worlds!

Radioactive decay elements can provide a energy source for extraterrestrial life in cold icy ocean worlds in outer Solar System, this process could break up water molecules and support hydrogen eating microbes. A team from University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI)  proposed this water breaking process called radiolysis. if radioactive materials are there in Europa, Titan and Pluto, extraterrestrial life can start in these water worlds. explore more…

NASA Guides for future E.T. Life search

Scientists searching the atmospheres of of other planets for gases that might be produced by Alien life should not rely on the detection on just one gas such as oxygen, ozone or methane, as cosmos can play trick and these gases can be produced non-biologically, according to the NASA Astrobiology Institute’s Virtual Planetary Laboratory.  Read full article about Alien life detection

Is Water essential for Extraterrestrial Life?

Till now scientists believe that water is almost essential for E.T., where there is water on Earth, there is life! so the potential candidates for search for extraterrestrial life must have liquid water and an energy source. you can read full discussion here

Why we are unable to detect Extraterrestrial Life and Alien Civilization

Mike Garret Professor of Astronomy from Leiden University throws light on the quest for Extraterrestrial Life, Physics and Astronomy studies tells us that our Milky Way should be filled with life and some intelligent E.T. Civilizations, but the fact is till now we have no evidence of any life outside earth. Read more

How World will change if we found Extraterrestrial Life?

What will happen if we found the E.T., what effect it would cast on science and human society? would be a profound shift for science? it would be Universalization of Biology; entire earth biology is based on single molecule “DNA”, but if we found even micro organism of other kind it will be a completely new Biological Science for Humans..Read more..

A mechanical Nano sensor for detecting Extraterrestrial life

Looking for life on other world is not easy task, usually we rely on chemical detection, but as we don’t have knowledge of alien life molecules, how we can make a sensor equipment for that. Now scientists are looking other ways for detecting alien life such as motion, every microbial life form would have motion, based on this concept  EPFL scientists have developed a sensitive simple motion detector. Till now this sensor proven accurate with detecting bacteria, yeast, and even cancer cells.  Know more

Oil eating microbes shows potential for E.T. life

Scientists found active microbes in droplets collected from world’s largest Natural asphalt lake. They found a huge diversity of bacteria and archaea. These microbes were actively degrading oil in the asphalt, this gives us idea to clean up oil spills. The discovery has a astro-biological viewpoint also, Saturn’s Moon Titan has hydrocarbon lakes on the surface! explore more

Extraterrestrial Life could be like this tiny bacteria trapped in 120000 year old ice

A team of Penn State scientists has discovered a new ultra-small species of bacteria that has survived for more than 120,000 years within the ice of a Greenland glacier at a depth of nearly two miles. The microorganism’s ability to persist in this low-temperature, high-pressure, reduced-oxygen, and nutrient-poor habitat makes it particularly useful for studying how life, in general, can survive in a variety of extreme environments on Earth and possibly elsewhere in the solar system.
