A few years ago we wrote that glaciers melting due to global warming could release ancient, long-dormant bacteria against which humans would no longer have any immunity. So far, much more ordinary things have been uncovered by glacier melt, so this has not proved to be a danger, but now we may be under another threat: alien rain.
Jebediah Reed writes in CNN.com that physicist Godfrey Louis?s laboratory in India contains jars filled with water from the strange, red rain that fell on his home state of Kerala in 2001, that he thinks may contain alien microbes. He has published a paper about it in the peer-reviewed journal Astrophysics and Space Science. He thinks the particles could be bacteria from space that arrived on a comet or meteorite and are especially adapted to the harsh conditions of space. The microbes have survived being heated in the lab to almost 600 degrees Fahrenheit. Before this, it was assumed that life could not exist at more than 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Specifically, Louis has isolated strange, thick-walled, red-tinted cell-like structures about 10 microns in size. Stranger still, dozens of his experiments suggest that the particles may lack DNA yet still reproduce plentifully, even in water superheated to nearly 600 degrees Fahrenheit (The known upper limit for life in water is about 250 degrees Fahrenheit ).
