In what is a cool mainstream find, Russian cosmonauts have discovered LIFE clinging to the outside of the International Space Station. This is the first time living organisms have been found on the space station and scientists are not sure how it got there.
The Russian press agency ITAR-TASS is reporting something so surprising that I'm having a hard time believing it: Cosmonauts have found microorganisms on the exterior of the International Space Station. Russian scientists are shocked by this discovery and can't really explain how it is possible.
According to the chief of the Russian ISS orbital mission, Vladimir Solovjev, these findings "are absolutely unique.
We have found traces of sea plankton and microscopic particles on the illuminator surface. This should be studied further."
At this point the Russian space agency can't really explain how sea plankton ended on the International Space Station. They have discarded spaceships taking the microorganisms there. Their only explanation is that atmospheric currents may be lifting these particles from the ocean all the way to the station, 205 miles (330 kilometers) up in the sky—which seems absolutely nuts to me:
Plankton in these stages of development could be found on the surface of the oceans. This is not typical for Baikonur. It means that there are some uplifting air currents which reach the station and settle on its surface.

It is not clear if the organisms were growing or multiplying but, if confirmed, this discovery may give even more credibility to the theory that organic life may have spread across space traveling on comets and asteroids.
Some theories appear to be true
The discovery of the Russian scientists is stunning in its implications. It supports the theory of Panspermia proposed by Sir Fred Hoyle and Dr Chandra Wickramasinghe that microbial extraterrestrial life can exist and travel in the vacuum of space on comets, and radiation pressure. In 1974, they proposed and were able to confirm that dust in interstellar space was largely organic, thereby making it possible for life to exist in interstellar space despite the harsh conditions there.
An important mechanism for microbial life to travel in interstellar space are Birkeland currents comprising plasma from the solar wind. According to Swedish scientist and Nobel Prize winner, Hannes Alfven, plasma can travel in vast electric currents throughout the vacuum of interstellar and intergalactic space.
The Russian scientists’ findings confirm that extraterrestrial life cannot only exist in the extreme conditions of space, but can also thrive there. The discovery of a form of sea plankton on the ISS suggests that the vacuum of space may contain sufficient micro-organisms that they could be a food source for more complex life forms. Rather than deep space being a lifeless vacuum, it may be more accurate to describe it as an ocean where life thrives in ways that scientists are only beginning to understand. The Russian discovery takes scientists one step closer to eventually concluding that extraterrestrial life is common throughout the universe.
NASA's theory that in the vacuum of space no life can exist seems now highly unlikely and embarrassing.
Pushing The Boundaries
No matter how you cut it, it’s cool. Like mentioned previously, there are those of us who fully believe in aliens. We may have studied all the evidence, seen UFOs ourselves or have had even more profound experiences. For this group of people, this is a mainstream discovery that will help open the minds of those who deny any possibility of life in space.
For those of us who don’t believe in aliens at all, or life in space, this is the beginning of what can be a very interesting reflection point as to what truly is possible in our reality. Are we alone?
The reality is, we do still have much to learn about our universe.
