We have shown that the red cells found in the Red Rain (which fell on Kerala, India, in 2001) survive and grow after incubation for periods of up to two hours at 121 oC . Under these conditions daughter cells appear within the original mother cells and the number of cells in the samples increases with length of exposure to 121 oC. No such increase in cells occurs at room temperature, suggesting that the increase in daughter cells is brought about by exposure of the Red Rain cells to high temperatures. This is an independent confirmation of results reported earlier by two of the present authors, claiming that the cells can replicate under high pressure at temperatures up to 300 oC. The flourescence behaviour of the red cells is shown to be in remarkable correspondence with the extended red emission observed in the Red Rectangle planetary nebula and other galactic and extragalactic dust clouds, suggesting, though not proving, an extraterrestrial origin.
Now, it ought to be obvious to us that this red rain must have originated SOMEWHERE. Its not like water vapour ever just arrives, its part of a cycle. So I wonder where this rain began its existance. From which body of water was it evaporated... I mean how did this stuff enter the weather system? Is there some hidden lake full of the stuff? Did humidity drag it from the deeps of some cave or other?
Could the lack of DNA be a defense against solar radiation? I mean we know that DNA can be denatured by solar radiation, perhaps the lack of it indicates a lifeform specificaly designed to be proof against interstellar deployment?
