    To be clear, this doesn't seem like a slam dunk at all, but its very interesting.

    That looks like a pair of deuces - not a winning hand... I wonder if we bite and show them our aces - little gray/green men. :whistle:

    I've seen many forms of alien life in Wal Mart stores in Polk County.

    They walk among us.

    it appears they are jumping to conclusions. Even if it is a lifeform, the origin of the life form can be from
    ---earth
    ---space(possibly another world)
    ---earth atmosphere
    ---etc

    they might have benefited from reading 'Andromeda Strain' which covers this matter very well via a discussion of the various ways a living organism can be in space but not originate there)Though 'Andromeda Strain' is sci-fi, the author(Michael Creighton) obtained top thoughts for his book from respected scientists in science(including researchers from two facilities at which I attended seminars in HS and college---Cold Spring Harbor Lab-genetics and Brookhaven National Lab-physics).

    already there are a multitude of articles relating the news item to contents of Andromeda Strain(the original movie and book and not the crappy remake)

    The first one looks like a discarded Nehru Jacket.

    With all of the planets, stars, and galaxies in our universe, it's much more likely that there's other life out there, and a lot of it, than not.

    I say clone 'em, and see how big we can make them.

    Certainly that could only produce good things.

    I'm sure there are other life forms out there but I think their assumptions are a little odd. It seems more likely they are from earth since they're in our stratosphere than it is likely they travelled from a distant location in the solar system or universe.

    One of the comments:
    "It should be noted that this same group has "discovered" evidence for alien lifeforms several times in the last few years. In fact they have consistently been finding evidence of alien life since the sixties!"

    "Their platform "The Journal of Cosmology" is entirely staffed by true-believers and only publishes their papers. Papers which only ever cite papers from others in the same clique."

    "It's almost too amazing to believe."

    "And at that point Tom Mendelsohn should definitely have checked with other scientists in the field, or at least Googled the subject."

    I remain skeptical.

    if they find life, hopefully they are friendly. If not, it could be another war!
