“This, plus the fact that some of the biological material samples by the team produce impact craters when they hit the sampler, confirms their space origin.”
On his interview he said the particles that his the sampler were imbedded which he says could only happen by very fast speed ,
Far greater than just floating around in the atmosphere .

Fascinating article especially in conjunction with the
marine organisms discovered on the exterior of ISS.
Thanks for the post OP
It was, in fact, an old superstition hundreds of years ago
that Comets contain organisms, hence why so many people
panicked when Haley discovered a Comet that the Earth would
pass through the tail.
There are old legends that often a plague would occur recently
after passing through the tail of a Comet.
Then, there's the possible Mars connection. Scientists used to say
Mars never had water that's impossible, but now we know that
Mars did have water-- a lot of water. It still has some water on it.
So, if Mars had water, it could have had sophisticated aquatic marine
So, what happened to Mars? Well who knows, but something happened
to all that water...
Maybe all that missing water is what formed Comets in the first place.
Has any scientists observed Comets outside the Solar System like in another
If it is Martian Water, could these very simple life forms have survived
in the frozen Comets, and as they pass earth, the sun starts to melt them
and wala, simple marine entities are released into space nearby earth.
Just a hypothesis.

Interesting I suppose, but diatoms I do believe can get way up there in the atmosphere, and they never did say how far up in space they found these little diatoms, I mean what do they mean by space? In all I dont think its that far fetched that they can get pretty high in the atmosphere, but space is another matter. In all they found diatoms all over the place, in the air, in the ground, all around plants animals definitely the ground, and even in human bodies.
In fact whats even more weird, I think there was a few cases of morgelens were they looked at the fibers people sent in to look at with high powered microscopes and they found that some had diatoms in them. Spooky huh! Maybe were slowly being invaded from space, and there doing it from a molecular level on up, it would be most effective and not only would nobody suspect it, they would not even know or feel it.
Ah just messing. Cool thread anyways.
Professor Milton Wainwright and his team made the discovery after launching a balloon high into the stratosphere during the Perseid meteor shower last year. The balloon was launched 27 km into the earth's atmosphere and was equipped with sterile slides designed to capture tiny biological organisms.
I agree the "assumptions" don't seem scientific and I don't think they've ruled out processes they are unaware of elevating the diatoms to that altitude, so it doesn't seem like good science to me.

What we have here is an opinion regarding Panspermia from someone with close links to the Godfather of the theory Chandra Wickramasinghe who also happens to be in the team , this isn't science.
Wickramasinghe and Wainwright claimed the red rain n Kerala was extraterrestrial in origin but it was shown in tests to have been alga spores from lichen common in the area , assumptions lead to flawed hypotheses and incorrect conclusions.
What fact? What creatures can live in outer space? The closest I'm aware of are creatures that can survive a trip through space in a dormant state (Tardigrades, for example, can survive at least 10 days in outer space), but I wouldn't call that exactly "living" in outer space. It does however provide some plausibility for the idea of panspermia, as in the possibility of a meteorite ejecting life from Mars which could possibly survive the trip to Earth in a dormant state.

But the fact that there are other creatures that can live there should be no surprise
I don't think we have, yet.
am very glad we have found some.

Rebelv great read this is why I joined ats I love your hypothesis if it may not be true but hope it is , thank for your input .
Wish we was on Mars now so do a bit of digging and just wandering about .
I bet there is something that proves life and intelligent life on there !
And not what has come from earth .
Guess we will find out one day and all the doubters will be proven wrong .
