A TOP scientist at Nasa says the agency will soon disclose something “revolutionary” about alien lifeforms.
Planetary Science Division director Dr Jim Green boasted the agency is close to “making some announcements” about finding life on Mars — but that we’re not ready for it.
Speaking to the Telegraph, he warned that the world isn’t prepared for the discovery of life on another planet, which may only be a couple of years away.
“It will be revolutionary,” Dr Green said. “It’s like when Copernicus stated ‘no we go around the Sun.’ Completely revolutionary.
“It will start a whole new line of thinking. I don’t think we’re prepared for the results. We’re not.”
He added that he’s worried because Nasa is close to finding life and announcing the discovery, and he doesn’t know what will happen afterwards.
“What happens next is a whole new set of scientific questions,” Dr Green continued.
“Is that life like us? How are we related? Can life move from planet to planet or do we have a spark and just the right environment and that spark generates life – like us or not like us – based on the chemical environment that it is in?”
In a statement, Nasa said it is excited about future missions to Mars, as well as the prospect of finding life on another planet.
“A key component of Nasa’s work is to search for the building blocks and signs of life elsewhere, and we’re excited about the scientific findings of our rovers on Mars currently and upcoming, as well as missions to Europa, Titan, and other places,” a spokesperson told Fox News.
Ohh, don’t worry about us – we can handle it!
