Is this the rock that proves aliens exist? Scientist 'finds extra-terrestrial fossils in meteor fragment'

  • Two-inch lump of space rock is 'pitted with microscopic seaweed fossils'
  • Fragment 'still smoking' after crashing to Earth in fireball over Sri Lanka
  • Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe says fossils in rock show alien life form
  • Notorious for theory that Earth was 'seeded' from space 3.8billion years ago
  • Experts dismiss claims as 'laughable' and say rock has been 'contaminated by fresh water'

A controversial British scientist claims to have found 'proof' that aliens exist - after cracking open a lump of rock which fell to earth in a meteorite shower.
Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, formerly of Cardiff University, claims the two-inch wide lump of space rock is pitted with microscopic seaweed fossils similar to those found on Earth.
'These finds are crushing evidence that human life started from outside our Earth,' said the professor, who is notorious for his theories that life on this planet was 'seeded' from outer space.

Teeming with traces of life? A controversial scientist claims this two-inch meteor fragment is packed with the fossils of extraterrestrial life similar to algae found in Earth's oceans.
'We are all aliens - we share a cosmic ancestry,' he said. 
'Each time a new planetary system forms a few surviving microbes find their way into comets. 
'These then multiply and seed other planets.
'These latest finds are just more evidence to point to the overwhelming fact that life on Earth began on other worlds.'
However, a string of experts have already lined up to dismiss his claims and argue that the apparent extra-terrestrial fossils are clearly present as the result of contamination here on Earth.
Another points out that it has yet to be proven that the rock is actually from space at all.
Professor Wickramasinghe's claims are outlined in a freely accessible paper on the website of the Journal of Cosmology.
The research alleges that 'microscopic fossilized diatoms (a basic form of algae) were found in the sample', which fell in Sri Lanka in December last year.
 
The finding, it suggests, is a 'strong evidence to support the theory of cometary panspermia' - the idea that life across planets is spread on rocks hurtling through space.
The still-smoking meteorite fragments were picked up by villagers in central Sri Lanka after they crashed to Earth in a spectacular fireball, it is claimed.
It is not reported how the researchers came to possess the rocks, but they were analysed in a British laboratory where fossils of algae were apparently found.
It is claimed the finds are similar to micro-organisms found in fossil remains from the dinosaur age 55million years ago.

A mathematician by training, Professor Wickramasinghe believes that life on Earth was seeded by comets and asteroids 3.8billion years ago.

A CONTROVERSIAL ACADEMIC

Chandra Wickramasinghe is notorious as the only scientist to argue against evolution during the 1981 Arkansas legal case against the teaching of creationism in schools.
The 74-year-old Sri Lankan-born British mathematician obtained a PhD from Cambridge under the supervision of the late Sir Fred Hoyle.
The pair went on to collaborate on a body of work some credit with providing the basis of the field of astrobiology. 
Their joint work on the infrared spectra of interstellar grains led to developing the hypothesis of panspermia, which proposes that cosmic dust in space and comets is partly organic - and may have 'seeded' life on Earth.
They further contended that extraterrestrial life forms continue to enter the Earth's atmosphere, and may be responsible for epidemic outbreaks, new diseases, and the genetic novelty necessary for macroevolution.
In 2003 he was joint signatory on a letter sent to The Lancet which suggested that the virus which causes SARS may not come from chickens, but could in fact be from outer space.
He was head of Cardiff University's Centre for Astrobiology until two years ago, when funding was withdrawn and he was dismissed from his post.
He also believes that pathogens like the SARS virus arrived here from deep space.
He was head of Cardiff University's Centre for Astrobiology until two years ago when funding for the department was withdrawn and he was dismissed from his post.
The controversial professor, the only scientist to testify against evolution in the famous 1981 creationist trial in Arkansas, has since carried on the project as a private company and charity.
He said: 'The algae organisms are similar to ones found in Earth fossils but the rock also has other organisms we have not identified.'
Astronomer and lecturer Phil Plait wrote in his blog on Slate that the chemical analysis presented in Wickramasinghe's study 'doesn’t prove it’s a carbonaceous chondrite, let alone a meteorite,' and there is 'no reason to trust that what they have is a meteorite.'
Plait also cited a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology Patrick Kociolek as saying that there was no sign that the diatoms illustrated in the study were 'fossilized material', and that most of them were species that represented 'a clear case of contamination with freshwater'.
Monica Grady, professor of Planetary Sciences at the Open University’s Faculty of Science, told MailOnline she finds the whole thing ‘laughable’.
‘There are serious inconsistencies with the data presented in the paper,' she said.
‘The most important is that the rock they have found is yet to be proven to be a meteorite. 
‘Until that is done, no credence can be placed on the findings presented, especially when they are published in a non-mainstream journal.'

THE PANSPERMIA HYPOTHESIS

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe is a leading proponent of panspermia, the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe and is spread by meteoroids, asteroids and planetoids.
Panspermia proposes that life forms that can survive the effects of space, such as extremophiles, become trapped in debris that is ejected into space after collisions between asteroids and planets that harbour life.
These life-forms may travel dormant for an extended amount of time before colliding randomly with other planets or intermingling with protoplanetary disks. 
If met with ideal conditions on a new planet's surfaces, the bacteria become active and the process of evolution begins, it is believed.
Professor Wickramasinghe, 74, claims microbes from outer space arrived on our planet from comets which then 'multiplied and seeded' to form our life.
The two-inch wide piece of meteorite was found near a village a few miles from the city of Polonnaruwa in Sri Lanka.
The fragments were said to be still smoking when they were found by woman villagers.
They were sent to Cardiff University's School of Earth Sciences where they were examined under a scanning electron microscope.
Professor Wickramasinghe, who is originally from Sri Lanka, and his late colleague Sir Fred Hoyle championed the 'life from outer space' theory from the 1960s.
He said: 'Evidence from astronomy overwhelmingly supports the view that life did not start on Earth but was seeded from outside.'

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:


Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:




Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
