Scientist Suggests Strange Metallic Orb Sent by Extraterrestrials

Scientists have found a tiny metal orb they believe is extraterrestrial in origin, has evidence of life on its exterior, and also has “a gooey biological material oozing” out of it. The lead scientist of the team who discovered the object suggests that it may have been sent by an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization for the purpose of seeding life on Earth.

This revelation comes from the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham and the University of Sheffield in England. The director of the center, Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, is one of the leading proponents of a theory called panspermia.

Panspermia is the idea that life in space is abundant, and that biological material travels from planet to planet. For example, it may be ejected from a planet via a meteor strike, or volcanic explosion, and then many years later falls onto a barren planet seeding life. An even more controversial version of this theory is called “directed panspermia,” which is the purposeful seeding of life on other planets by an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization.

The findings by the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology in this area have been highly controversial. They claim to have several examples of microbial life from extraterrestrial sources. Their latest claim is regarding samples they received from a balloon they launched into the stratosphere. They gathered samples of material floating around up there. It is believed that the stratosphere is too high for microbes from Earth to reach, so any they find must be extraterrestrial. [...]

When they analyzed the orb, Professor Wainwright told the Daily Express, “We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium.”

The surprises did not stop there. Wainwright described the object: “It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre.”

Wainwright went on to speculate on the object’s origin: “One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life.”

I was skeptical at first, how many times have we all seen this type of thing only to find out there's no real academic basis, and sensational articles quoting non-existent professors from non-existent institutions.
From what I see this is legitimate, and like nothing else that I've ever read.

Is it oozing perpetually? 13.gif

That would be pretty fantastic

Interesting. I wonder where they found it.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

It failed to say that it was oozing perpetually. Interesting yes, but where's the analysis of this "biological material"?
If it was "biological material", why didn't they go the distance, sequence it's DNA and determine if it was of unknown origin?
Like they did with Bigfoot hair samples that showed them to originate from an unknown primate?
There's just not enough information here to make me a believer until those tests are done.
But was interesting enough that I thought it deserved a post.

Metal gas bio infused Terraforming balls would be my thought.

"this sample was not found in the containment system used to collect samples, like the dragon particle, rather it was found on the balloon itself."

So on the balloon, according to the article.

spock.gif Not out of the realm of possibilities, but it really bugs me the article didn't discuss analyzing at it's DNA.

So... It thought the "balloon" was a condom?

Ceaseless Discharge!

Beings upon other worlds might be 5 inches tall or 500 feet tall or even 50 miles tall in comparison to you and i and some of them are probably technologically advanced and psychologically evolved light years beyond us and so they could so easily be sending remotely flown and robotically driven and alien piloted craft of any and all sizes to investigate and examine and collect samples from the biosphere and atmosphere and hydrosphere and lithosphere of earth just like we have been doing to the moon and mars and elsewhere...

Very odd, but some key questions are being avoided.

If its made of Titanium why is there no Burn or Distortion of the metal from its entry into the atmosphere?

Nothing Inside would have survived that amount of heat.

Well i'm thinking, for one instance, if alien flying saucers are built of materials from another universe, comprised of atomic structures from some other dimension, than they would be indestructible within our reality and so we could detonate nuclear bombs right next to them and those other worldly craft would not be destroyed and not even damaged?!

And it also could be that the aliens are so technologically advanced light years beyond us that they have designed and created and discovered virtually invincible and impervious materials?!
