A mysterious metal orb spewing out biological material was recently discovered by U.K. researcher Milton Wainwright, an astrobiologist studying dust particles in Earth’s atmosphere, who suggests that the tiny object may be an alien device designed to seed life on earth.
The metal shell of the alien “seed” is made out of titanium with some vanadium mixed in and is filled with organic compounds, Wainwright says.
“It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre.”
This is the first time something like this has been seen and its design suggests that an advanced alien species created it Researchers have suggested that the biological material within the seed could contain DNA strands essential for creation of life.
It was recently discovered that DNA can survive that harshest of conditions when a tiny strand of DNA on the exterior of a TEXUS-49 rocket was sent into orbit from Sweden in 2011. While in orbit, it withstood temperatures exceeding 1,000 degrees Celsius and came back to Earth essentially unharmed.
Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, the director of the Buckingham Center for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham in England, said that the tiny ‘alien seed’ was further evidence of intelligent life in the universe.
Wainwright says that the alien device may be a complete microorganism ” sent to Earth by some extraterrestrial civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life.”
“This seeming piece of science fiction — called ‘directed panspermia’ — would probably not be taken seriously by any scientist were it not for the fact that it was very seriously suggested by the Nobel Prize winner of DNA fame, Francis Crick.”
Panspermia is the theory that life is spread throughout the known universe on the backs of comets or meteorites.
Wainwright said that unless they could track down the alien civilization and the details of its creation, the seed theory was unprovable. Nevertheless, Wainwright is sticking to his guns and has evidence to support his theory.
“For the moment, we are content to say that the life-containing titanium sphere came from space, possibly from a comet.”
The alien ‘life seed’ left an impact crater on the balloon that indicates that the alien device came into Earth’s atmosphere at a high velocity and could not possibly have been a returning particle.
Wainwright said that the “impact crater proves that the sphere was incoming to Earth from space, an organism coming from Earth would not be travelling fast enough when it fell back to Earth to cause such damage.”
NASA is similar research in hopes of discovering similar evidence of life outside of our solar system, which Wainwright hopes will further support his theory.
Scientists have long balked at such theories but as mounting evidence continues to collect, researchers are discovering more and more traces of alien life in the universe.
Professor Wickramasinghe, has been a long time advocate of the idea that alien life has been bombarding the earth from comets and asteroids and that “evidence from meteorites, from samples of bacteria from space and from space observation is making resistance more difficult.”
“Proving that the Earth is in a constant exchange of matter with the larger cosmos would have implications not only in terms of our identity, but could also give us insight into alien viruses which may be important for our group identity, evolution and survival itself.”
Do you believe that life on earth could have originated in outer space, or is Wainwright’s theory too far out?
