Fossilized Proof of Alien Lifeforms

The below image was taken from an electron microscope's view of a meteorite found last month in Sri Lanka.



Quote:
According to Chandra Wickramasinghe, the director of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham in the U.K., that wormlike shape in the image is a diatom ("a type of microscopic plant life"), and if his research is correct, it came from outer space.

In studying the meteorite Wickramasinghe and his colleagues found "a microstructure and morphology characteristic of a wide class of terrestrial diatoms," and "the presence of structures of this kind in any extraterrestrial setting could be construed as unequivocal proof of biology." In other words, these fossils match similar lifeforms found on Earth, but because they were found on a meteorite, the researchers believes they didn't come from Earth. So Wickramasinghe and company believe they've found definite proof of at least microscopic forms of life in outer space.
The full article also broaches the topic of panspermia as well. It's pretty interesting. The concept is that dormant life forms could potentially ride aboard space debris and plant themselves in the planets on which they land. Basically, planets germinate other planets.

Re: Fossilized Proof of Alien Lifeforms

Panspermia seems plausible enough to me, but don't a lot of people get up in arms over it and refute it? I'm not current on the state of E.T. affairs. I know all the world's gold comes from meteors, so that would seem to support panspermia.
