Plankton Found on the Exterior of the International Space Station!
While examining samples taken from the exterior surface of the ISS, scientists discovered something completely unexpected - Marine Plankton living on the surface, despite the harsh condition (Vacuum, temperature, and radiation.)
There was evidence that the plankton had been living there for years, and possibly even developing, too.
This gives more plausibility to the panspermia theory - that life all over the solar system/galaxy/universe is all related thanks to bacteria catching rides on asteroids and comets. We already know it is possible for rocks to be thrown away from a planet by something like an asteroid impact or large volcanic eruption - some meteorites have had their lineage traced back to mars.
So do you believe the panspermia theory to be plausible? what about alien life in general?
Yes, and I think the only difference in alien life “like us” will be that from evolution and environmental conditions.
I want to occasionally share some of my writings with my followers. This is from Twisted Vine: An Anthology and in my 99 cents romantic Kindle booklet, The Gift of Oneself. It is one of my favorites. It would be interesting to learn how you interpret it and if you like it. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts. I really don’t bite back.
DUAL SEASONS IN TIME

The prequel, Realms of the Earth, also includes a story, but that book is not yet published and I’m having second thoughts about completing it, or book III of the series due to lack of interest. If this book stimulates…
