NASA has created the so-called Center for Life Detection Science in hopes to find evidence we are not alone in the universe.
The American Space Agency has made great efforts in uncovering the mysteries of the universe, and whether or not life as we know it exists elsewhere in the solar system, galaxy, and universe.
And in order to answer the ‘million-dollar-question’ whether we are alone out there, NASA has set up the Center for Life Detection Science (CLDS), and experts say we may soon have a definitive answer.
“The search for life beyond Earth cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach,” Tori Hoehler, a biogeochemist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, who will lead the new astrobiology center there, said in a statement.
“To give ourselves the best shot at success, we need to develop tools and strategies that are tailored to detecting life in the unique conditions of other worlds, which are very different not only from Earth but also from each other.”
To help answer whether or not Aliens are real, NASA’s finest scientists will team up with experts from Georgetown University and Georgia Tech University.
The group of scientists is expected to lay the groundwork that will allow the detection of bio-signatures of lifeforms that could be unlike anything we’ve seen on Earth.
Britney Schmidt of Georgia Tech will study the possibility of past or present life in the outer moons of our solar system, or Mars.
Sarah Stewart Johnson of Georgetown University speaks of her team’s goal as trying to recognize life ‘as we don’t know it.’
And that’s precisely what we’ve been doing wrong all along.
It is absurd to think that alien life is anything similar to ours.
Researchers from the CLDS will be joined by more scientists as the program moves forward.
