Are we the only living species in the universe? This question has been asked since ancient times and remains without a definitive answer despite many people believing there are alien life-forms out there and “evidence” that supports this belief. As Ellen DeGeneres once confessed,
“The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren’t any space aliens. We can’t be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we’re not all there is. If so, we’re in big trouble.”
Check out these 25 Oddities That Might Convince You Life Outside Our Planet Exists!
Cloudy life on Venus
Scientists theorize that there might be life on Venus’s clouds. In spite of Venus’s hot, acidic surface; 50 kilometers up the moist atmosphere, conditions are a bit more hospitable with a temperature of 70°C and a pressure similar to Earth’s.
A team of NASA and university scientists has detected very high amounts of methane in Mars’ atmosphere, which indicates that the planet is still alive, in either a biologic or geologic sense.
Near Air Collision
Stories of near-collisions involving a cigar-shaped UFO and commercial airplanes are endless in number. Many pilots have reported that cigar or rugby ball–shaped objects have passed within a few feet of their planes’ cockpits. A recent incident involving one of Air China’s jets could be more than conjecture. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing after an unexplained occurrence ruined its cone. Was it a collision with a flying disc that came out of nowhere? Some believe this to be the case.
Evidence for the possibility of life outside our planet, could ironically be found here on earth. Life can be found in the harshest of environments, from the cold dark depths of our oceans to the aftermath of super heated volcanic lava. Scientists believe that if life could live within our planet’s harsh extremes, then life could also live within similar extremes outside our planet (say beneath the surface of Mars).
African Cave Painting
An African cave painting depicts a being wearing headgear with antennae and flying through the air. The being has large black, slanted eyes, thin lips, and is holding an animal in its arms.
