The Panspermia Theory – Life lives in outer space

panspermia theory

The Paspermia Theory (wiki) is the theory that life lives and exists in outer space. The theory comes from a nobel prize winning scientist. First proposed in 1871 the theory is that life or the chemical molecules exist in outer space and when reaching an environment like earth can create life.

There are articles all over the web like this one from the Huffingtonpost showing the sphere they believe is from outer space. There are also multiple studies from the upper atmosphere of earth (where our atmosphere hits the theoretical line for space) that is teeming with microbes and life.

Author’s take

It is entirely possible that life is living throughout the “space” of the universe. If it is true the life most likely lives as an advanced microbe. There are species here on earth that can survive extreme conditions like scolding heat and well below freezing temperatures. Another theory in tandem with the Panspermia theory is that these microbes are constantly raining down on earth and throughout the universe. When these space microbes reach a planet that is suitable for adaptation the process begins, and life is created as we know it.
