Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, now I like that guy's style. Studying astronomical discoveries of the past 30 years, he wrote a scientific paper with supporting evidence that life originated elsewhere 3.8 billion years ago and traveled to Earth in the form of organic molecules.

Alien life that looks like something from the Alien movies, that is just scary, but if the life on Earth originated from somewhere in the galaxy and looked something like us, that I'd be cool with.

Blood Falls located in the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica might be a good place to start, considering the microbes located there are among the oldest living organisms on the planet. Still, scientists should be paying closer attention to the pre-Cambrian stromatolites in Glacier National Park in Montana which are 3.5 billion year old fossilized algae microbes.

While it sounds funny to say that "all humans are aliens from outer space," IJA  (04 Feb 2010), it wouldn't be that bizarre to find a Pandora out there, I know we're all day dreaming about it.
