Aliens: Are We There Yet?

Aliens: Are We There Yet?

Akib Hassan

Do aliens really exist? If this question was asked a few years ago the answer would seem confusing and the wise would usually end up explaining the vastness and the possibilities of the universe. Many of us are curious enough to ask this question a million times but the answer has always been blurry. But recently, cheering up all the space fans, the chief scientist of NASA, Ellen Stofan, said as part of a panel “I believe we are going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth in the next decade and definitive evidence in the next 10 to 20 years.” She further added, “We know where to look, we know how to look, and in most cases we have the technology.” They might not look as we have imaged them in the movies but merely be microscopic life-forms.
On the other hand, Professor Milton Wainwright and his team from the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology executed an experiment by sending balloons into the stratosphere 27 km above the Earth’s atmosphere to collect particles from space.
He claimed what  they have discovered is not only proof that life exists in outer space, but that extraterrestrial organisms are continually raining down on earth.
 He said: “The photo shows 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. This is clearly a biological entity (about 10micron in size), although it is unclear whether it is part of a single organism or is made up of smaller, individual microbes… It is certainly unusual and seems to be like nothing found on Earth….”
This already gives us a first-hand expression of our ‘Foreign Friends’. And after the Kepler’s discovery of ‘Earth’s Cousin’ the hopes are brighter. Though none can yet emphasize the certainty of their existence, we now have enough proofs to keep believing.
