O trditvi o odkritju izvenzemeljskega življenja

    Richard B. Hoover, znanstvenik pri NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center, ima v tisku članek v katerem trdi, da je odkril ostanke mikrofosilov v meteorju, ki so zelo podobni cianobakterijam in naj bi kazali na obstoj zunajzemeljskega življenja. Članek bo objavljen v Journal of Cosmology, ki ima zgodovino objav s precej majavimi temelji, kar sicer ne pomeni, da ni trditev dr. Hooverja pravilna. V branje priporočam komentar na blogu Bad Astronomy:

    So, to conclude: a claim has been made about micro-fossils in a meteorite. The claims are interesting, the pictures intriguing, but we are a long, long way from knowing whether the claim is valid or not! We’ve been down this road before and been disappointed. As with any scientific claim, skepticism is needed, and in the case of extraordinary claims, well, you know the saying.
