Aliens exist, and we have proof.
That astonishingly awesome claim comes from Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an  astrobiologist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, who says he has  found conclusive evidence of alien life — fossils of bacteria found in  an extremely rare class of meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites.  (There are only nine such meteorites on planet Earth.) Hoover’s  findings were published late Friday night in the Journal of Cosmology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
“I interpret it as indicating that life is more broadly distributed than  restricted strictly to the planet earth,” Hoover, who has spent more  than 10 years studying meteorites around the world, told FoxNews.com in an interview. “This field of study has just barely been touched —  because quite frankly, a great many scientist would say that this is  impossible.”
Hoover discovered the fossils by breaking apart the CI1 meteorite, and  analyzing the exposed rock with a scanning-electron microscope and a  field emission electron-scanning microscope, which allowed him to detect  any fossil remains. What he found were fossils of micro-organisms, many  of which he says are strikingly similar to those found on our own  planet.
“The exciting thing is that they are in many cases recognizable and can  be associated very closely with the generic species here on earth,” said  Hoover. Some of the fossils, however, are quite odd. “There are some  that are just very strange and don’t look like anything that I’ve been  able to identify, and I’ve shown them to many other experts that have  also come up stump.”
In order to satisfy the inevitable hoard of buzz-killing skeptics,  Hoover’s study and evidence were made available to his peers in the  scientific community in advance of the study’s publications, giving them  a chance to thoroughly dissect his findings. Comments from those who  decided to sift through the evidence will be published online, alongside  the study.
“Given the controversial nature of his discovery, we have invited 100  experts and have issued a general invitation to over 5,000 scientists  from the scientific community to review the paper and to offer their  critical analysis,” writes Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics scientist Dr. Rudy Schild, who serves as the Journal of Cosmology’s  editor-in-chief. “No other paper in the history of science has undergone  such a thorough vetting, and never before in the history of science has  the scientific community been given the opportunity to critically  analyze an important research paper before it is published.”
