Time and again we come across movies that talk about aliens, but now its researchers who have claimed through their latest discovery. Researchers at the University of Sheffield and University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology have discovered an oddly microscopic structure in the outer reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere, which hints at the existence of alien life.

An image of the “ghost particle,” described as looking like a chiffon scarf and having the width of a human hair, is being published for the first time. The particle has been dubbed “ghost particle” because of its wispy appearance which resembles a “wisp of smoke” when viewed under a microscope.The particle was discovered by Professor Milton Wainright and his team in dust and particulate matter collected from the stratosphere, the outer part of our atmosphere.

Researchers now speculate this ghost particle found in space also has biological processes that allow this living balloon to inflate when air passes through it. Its structure allows the balloon to float around in the air and even in low Earth orbit.

Researchers believe its natural state could be in an inflated or puffed up form unlike any living creature on Earth.
Wainwright also adds the particles appeared on sampling stubs in the most pristine state and wasn’t contaminated by pollen, dust or any pollutants. Scientists still don’t know how this balloon was lifted from Earth and how it filters out dirt or pollution particles originating from the planet.

“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.He continued that they also produce tiny dents we call impact craters when they land on the sampler so there is almost no doubt of their space origin.
“If our findings are true they will forever alter our view of life and particularly evolution on Earth and we will need to rewrite of our biology textbooks. It is an amazing discovery and the evidence is overwhelming that these organisms have originated from outer space,” said Wainwright.
Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, who also worked on the experiment said, “We are starting to find diatoms in space, mixed up in debris in the stratosphere.” Diatoms are a major group of algae, and one of the most common types of phytoplankton. “The evidence points towards theories that complex living organisms are falling from the skies to Earth,” he added.
Bottom line: Wainright and his colleagues, including Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, are pioneers of the new field of astrobiology. They are also proponents of a theory called panspermia, which posits that life on Earth came from space.

A gigantic but fleeting burst of radio waves has been caught in the act for the first time, helping to narrow down the vast array of things that might cause them. Figuring out what these fast radio bursts – sometimes called blitzars – are or where they come from could help answer some of the biggest cosmological questions.

Cosmic radio bursts – what astronomers call fast radio bursts – are bright flashes of radio waves, lasting only a few milliseconds. The first one was seen retroactively in 2007, only 3 degrees from the direction in space to the Small Magellanic Cloud. Before now, no fast radio burst was observed in real time. Even now, the source of the bursts is unknown.This week, an international team of astronomers reports a breakthrough. They say that – for the first time – they have observed a fast radio burst as it happened.

John Mulchaey, acting director of the Carnegie Observatories, said: “These events are one of the biggest mysteries in the Universe. Until now, astronomers were not able to catch one of these events in the act.”

Emily Petroff, from the Swinburne University of Technology, added: “These bursts were generally discovered weeks or months or even more than a decade after they happened! We’re the first to catch one in real time.”
The scientists mobilised 12 telescopes around the world and in space to capture the burst. After working out the burst location with the Parkes telescope, the others were used to make follow up observations on different wavelengths.

The burst they saw – exploding 5.5 billion years from Earth. Astrophysicists at the University of Copenhagen did just that and found two sources of X-rays at that position. Those were observed from another telescope and found to be quasars – a type of pulsating black hole – which were “nothing to do with radio wave bursts, but just happen to be located in the same direction” said astrophysicist Giorgos Leloudas, Dark Cosmology Centre, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.“We found out what it wasn’t,” said Daniele Malesani, astrophysicist at the Dark Cosmology Centre, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
“The burst could have hurled out as much energy in a few milliseconds as the Sun does in an entire day. But the fact that we did not see light in other wavelengths eliminates a number of astronomical phenomena that are associated with violent events such as gamma-ray bursts from exploding stars and supernovae, which were otherwise candidates for the burst.”
“The theories are now that the radio wave burst might be linked to a very compact type of object – such as neutron stars or black holes and the bursts could be connected to collisions or ‘star quakes’. Now we know more about what we should be looking for.”
