This is (if true…?) ACTUALLY quite a fantastic find………

Amazing to think that an 'earth bound' entity could get all the way up there……….

Maybe the Plankton have had enough and just want to leave this polluted Blue Orb..

Hmm, now I'm imagining all the dolphins bolting before the end of the earth in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - "goodbye and thanks for all the fish"...

Not such a good thought there...

Wow, this news really makes my day! SnF to you! My only question is how long has NASA really known about this stuff floating around in Space? Probably at least 30yrs....Further, where it really came from....? I'm guessing that it's a chemical make-up type of thing like fruit flies in fruit. It's there and you don't even see it because it's part of it.

I think it does.

I have always believed that even within our own solar system we will find life nearly everywhere we truly look.


Yes and I predict there are large life forms in space also. In fact I think we will find there is life just about everywhere!

Congrats Loam, I believe you get the honor of the very first post that shows confirmation of life in outer space. Granted, it's not extraterrestrial but it ain't human.

That means you get a cookie!

To extrapolate further...

If true it may not be so surprising if someday an Earth probe finding Earth microorganisms on say some ice moon in our own solar system.

Well, that hasn't been the case so far. In fact, it's been pretty much nowhere we've looked, except here. If you want to count that.

Great Find. I wonder what they found on the surface of the Black Knight when they brought it down to inspect it.

This is really interesting indeed !

So to me, our planet Earth in co-huts with the Universe... is taking care of its self naturally.
Planet Earth is naturally seeding the universe on its own accord.

It's all a part of the natural cycle, the universe being symbiotic in its entirety.

Most would not think about it on this level. It also makes me wonder if Earth is preparing to spread life out into the Universe because it feels it needs to.
Does Earth know something we don't...

How may times has this been done already from other planets out there, planets that no longer harbor life today.

Loam, I have a feeling this thread's gonna be a biggie!!


They claim the plankton were not carried there at launch – but are thought to have been blown there by air currents on Earth.


In 2014, the humans discover organisms that are hanging around a space station constructed very recently.......compared to the age of the Earth.

Surely one can extrapolate from this discovery that maybe, just maybe, the organism(s) never stopped travelling from the Earth (or any other "habitable" planet for that matter)....up to and including hundreds of millions of years ago and in fact the universe is teeming with Life - and always has been.

Well. This is pretty big news. A third organism that can survive the extremes of space.

If this "splankton" has been found on the ISS, then, i would start searching for other things. I have always wondered how much life we would find in our upper atmosphere. Usually when you find life somewhere, its not alone. There is usually a food chain or maybe a whole working ecosystem involved.

I wonder if this is really the first time they have found something like this.

That is awesome news! I always had a feeling something like this would be discovered.

What are these nanosatellites?

"The discovery was made during a routine spacewalk by Russian cosmonauts Olek Artemyev and Alexander Skvortsov, who were launching nanosatellites into space."

Now we finally have the answer for Abductees.

It's those pesky plankton. I never trusted them all sneaky and small.

Got to see where this goes.

A very interesting find!


The news agency reported that Mr. Solovyev was uncertain “how these microscopic particles could have appeared on the surface of the space station,” adding that the organisms were not typical for Baikonur in Kazakhstan, from where the space station lifted off.


To put on my not-so-scientific hat, how do we know these microscopic particles came from earth at all? It's stated that we/they are uncertain how they got on the surface of the space station. Sure, they exist on earth so that is the likely origin...but, what if?

I say this in the mind-set of how life may have been 'seeded' on earth in the first place.



This kind of ran through my mind as well. Im of the opinion that it could be either or, understandably earth is the most obvious candidate. I would like to see some DNA sampling done on these guys. Surely that could give us a little insight to it specific origins. Maybe these plankton are indigenous to china or brazil... ect.

I have always firmly believed this.

It makes much more sense than the alternative theory.

Interesting that plankton has been found to be able to survive in space. I'm no expert but don't they add a significant amount of oxygen to our planet? Either way, this is great for the panspermia theory and the possibility of finding other planets with life as we know it.

What if Earth was the the planet where all life in the universe originated? Then Earth is really the center of the Universe.
