'Metal sphere' discovered in the stratosphere

A controversial new claim suggests that evidence of 'directed panspermia' has been found by scientists.
Astrobiologist Milton Wainwright and his team are no strangers to controversy having previously announced the discovery of what they believe to be evidence of extraterrestrial life in samples retrieved from high up in the stratosphere of our own planet.

Now the researchers are back with a new theory suggesting that a microscopic metal sphere also found in the stratosphere represents evidence that an advanced extraterrestrial race deliberately seeded the Earth with life at some point in the distant past.

Known as directed panspermia, the theory implies that life on our planet was neither an accident nor a natural process but instead a direct result of intervention from another world.

The main basis of the claim, the tiny metal sphere found in the samples, is described as having "filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre."

"One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life," said Wainright. "This seeming piece of science fiction - called 'directed panspermia' - would probably not be taken seriously by any scientist were it not for the fact that it was very seriously suggested by the Nobel Prize winner of DNA fame, Francis Crick."

Even Wainright himself however admits that this evidence alone is never going to be enough.

"Unless, of course, we can find details of the civilization that is supposed to have sent it in this respect, it is probably an unprovable theory," he said.
