Have Indian researchers found E.T.?

New Delhi - Indian researchers believe they have discovered
traces of extraterrestrial life in the shape of microbes in
samples they collected outside the earth's atmosphere, the Press
Trust of India reported on Monday.

Jayant Narlikar from the Indian Space Research Organisation
announced during a lecture on "The Search For Extraterrestrial
Life" in Nagpur city in Maharashtra state that they had made the
discovery a few weeks ago, but were double-checking their
findings.

"Micro-organisms resembling coccus, fungal and rod-like bacillus
were discovered in samples collected 41 kilometres above the
earth's surface," said Narlikar.

"Biologists are now trying to verify the origin of the micro-
organisms. Whatever may be the source of life, if biologists
confirm the results, it will prove that extraterrestrial life
does exist," he added.

Narlikar said Indian scientists had used a sophisticated gadget
called a cryosampler to conduct the experiment for life in
space.

"This is only the second experiment of its kind in the world.
The United States had conducted a similar study where some
evidences of life were found. It will open a new line of
challenge for the global scientific community," said Narlikar.

Narlikar observed that their sample could contain "microbial
life coming from debris of comets and other celestial objects".
