'Alien life found above Derbyshire proves we're descended from extraterrestrials', say scientists

Researchers claim to have discovered particulate matter in the Earth's stratosphere that proves conclusively the existence of extraterrestrial life

The truth about alien life isn't just out there, it's continuously raining down on us, and could possibly explain the origins of all human life.

That's according to researchers at the University of Sheffield, and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology, who claim this picture of particulate matter in the Earth's stratosphere is the long awaited proof of extraterrestrial life.

Not content with solving one of the universe's greatest mysteries, however, the researchers also claim that their findings explain the origins of humanity and reveal that all life on earth originally came from space.

Professor Milton Wainwright and his team made the discovery after launching a balloon high into the stratosphere during the Perseid meteor shower last year.

The balloon was launched 27 km into the earth's atmosphere and was equipped with sterile slides designed to capture tiny biological organisms.

During the trip one of the slides caught an organism, around 10microns in size, which Wainwright says is a structure 'colloquially called ‘the dragon particle’ which scientific analysis shows is made of carbon and oxygen and is therefore not a piece of cosmic or volcanic dust.'

In an interview with the Daily Express, Wainwight explained that it was unclear whether the organism was a single life-form or was made up of a number of smaller microbes.

He was also unequivocal that the biological entity was "like nothing found on earth".

"What is amazing is that these organisms appear on the sampling stubs in an absolutely pristine condition," he told the paper.

“There is no pollen, grass or pollution particles found with them, or for that matter soil or volcanic dust."

“Unless a means of lifting them from Earth exists which selectively sieves them out from other Earth-derived debris then they must be incoming from space.

“This, plus the fact that some of the biological material samples by the team produce impact craters when they hit the sampler, confirms their space origin.”

However claims from Professor Milton Wainwright have attracted criticism from the scientific community. One astrobiologist told "The jump to the conclusion that it is alien life is a big jump and would require quite extraordinary proof. (The usual Sagan saying: extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.)"

He went on to tell the site that Wainwright would need to show that the organism was composed of all D amino acids instead of L amino acids, that is, some kind of proof that the debris did not contain the same biochemistry as Earth objects.

Additionally the Journal of Cosmology has had its reputation called into question more than once by other members of the scientific community.

However Professor Wainwright's findings may chime with others. His assertions come mere weeks after Russian scientists claimed to have discovered traces of marine life living on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS).

Vladimir Solovyev, the official in charge of Russia’s ISS segment, told the news agency Itar-Tass that tiny plankton and microscopic organisms had been discovered on the spacecraft's exterior, describing the finds as “absolutely unique".

The discovery of organisms on the ISS was the first time complex organisms have been discovered in outer space, and many believe the discovery validates the theory that all life on earth originated from space.

This is not the first time Wainwright has made extraordinary claims. Last year he told The Independent that he was "95 per cent convinced" that the organisms found on slides sent into space did not originate from earth.

"By all known information that science has, we know that they must be coming in from space," he said. "There is no known mechanism by which these life forms can achieve that height. As far as we can tell from known physics, they must be incoming."

Some of the samples were captured covered with cosmic dust, adding further credence to the idea that they have originated from space.

"The organisms are not usual," said Professor Wainwright, who works at the University of Sheffield’s Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. "If they came from earth, we would expect to see stuff that we find on earth commonly, like pollen."

"We're very, very confident that these are biological entities originating from space," he said, acknowledging that absolutely certainty is hard to achieve in science.

The team believes that the entities are coming from comets.

"The particles are very clean," added Prof Wainwright. "They don't have any dust attached to them, which again suggests they're not coming to earth."

"Similarly, cosmic dust isn't stuck to them, so we think they came from an aquatic environment, and the most obvious aquatic environment in space is a comet."



  1. Stating that life originates from space or Mars is merely putting distance between the question and the answer. A change of location provides no answer to the origin of life. It is merely a convenient way of providing an answer without actually answering the question and thereby actually mimics faith, whilst pretending to have better answers. I would say that life is born out of the environment like a seed that sprouts under the right circumstances. The potential was always there. It merely needs to be brought forth. Positioning is of great importance in this regard. An example of this is music. Notes by themselves have no inherent meaning, but in combination with each other they transmit feelings and ideas. The Earth´s position within the Universe will bring forth various lifeforms depending upon its position relative to other bodies and influences. In that sense life is one of the two standards and by no means an exception.

  2. I cannot agree with this scientific theory; in that, our atmosphere and that which falls from the sky could include organisms from chemtrails which float up and then down throughout the atmosphere to the earth. Organisms which are unseen to our naked eye is being bombarded with all types of contamination and no one really know the effects.

    My take is if chemtrails, radiation, and other airborne contaminants are interfering with human DNA, what could the results be for organisms which exist in our atmosphere that are not evident with the natural eye. My theory is based on "what goes up, must come down."

    Man's attempt to explain the unexplained yields some theories that have a lot of holes; which lead me to believe that there are some phenomenon which is above man's mastery.

    Lately, I have noticed some bugs which I have never seen before. I see locusts, but I see these other bugs that look like a cross between a praying mantis and a locust...they look like green leaves.

    I am just saying that using logic yields different results in my own analysis.
