Have we made our first contact with Aliens?

A team from the University of Sheffield, in a new paper in the Journal of Cosmology, have said that we might have finally found biological alien matter. And, no, they are not 5 feet tall and do not have any magical powers. As yet.

Professor Milton Wainright and his team, on July 7, 2013, launched a special weather balloon which had a drawer mechanism that could be remotely opened and closed at any desired height.

Precautions were taken so that the inside of the draw device was completely uncontaminated before and after the launch.

The balloon was allowed to float into the stratosphere and at a height of 22 km from the surface the drawer was opened for a total of 17 minutes.

And on it's return to the Earth, the "biomorphs" – organisms never before seen or comparable to anything on earth - were found inside.

It's only 300 microns large and the scientists said any particle larger than 5 microns cannot be projected into such a great height from the surface of the earth.
Only way such an occurrence is possible only through violent volcanic eruptions and there has not been any major volcanic activity in the past 20 years.

They also said that it is statistically highly improbable that the  biological entities could have originated from orbiting satellites or other man-made space objects.

So, they conclude that these biomorphs have originated in space and argue that are organisms are constantly arriving in the stratosphere via comets and meteor showers.

"Our conclusion is that life is continually arriving to Earth from space," the Professor Wainright wrote. "Life is not restricted to this planet and it almost certainly did not originate here."
