Humankind has always been fascinated by the outer space. Since the beginning of time people have wondered what the outer world looks like and whether we are alone in this world or not. Well, while we have multiple movies and TV shows depicting aliens, all of them are fictional. However, given NASA’s recent findings, it seems like we are closer to making contact with aliens faster than we think. Here are 6 reasons why.
6. Life can begin in space
NASA just proved the theory that life can indeed begin in outer space. Even though all this time we thought life couldn’t exist without the basic necessities like water and other stuff, NASA ran a simulated test in their outer space environment and showed life can form there. Organic compounds that are floating in space can simply combine with different radiations from the sun or other planets and combine with the solar radiation and you can end up with life-bearing molecules. Fascinating stuff!
