Scientist Says He May Have Proof of Alien Life

Meteorite found with seaweed fossils, awaiting testing for contamination on Earth


A controversial British scientist claims to have found 'proof' that aliens exist—after cracking open a lump of rock which he believes fell to earth in a meteorite shower.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, formerly of Cardiff University, claims the two-inch wide lump of space rock is pitted with microscopic seaweed fossils similar to those found on Earth.
