Philae (ESA)

Extraterrestrial life. Scientists have confirmed that the Philae lander has detected organic molecules on the surface of its comet.

The European Space Agency (Esa) craft touched down on the Comet 67P on November 12 2014 after a 10-year journey.

Dr Fred Goessmann, main investigator on the Cosac instrument that made the organics detection, confirmed the discovery, although he added that the team was still trying to interpret the results.

Remember that carbon-containing “organics” are the basis of life on Earth. Other analyses suggest the comet surface is mostly water-ice covered with a thin dust layer.

Congratulations! Once again, extraterrestrial life is possible!

“The thing to keep in mind is that we’re still in the very early days when it comes to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Saying there’s a silence is a bit like if Columbus, looking to discover a new continent, only sailed 10 miles off the coast of Spain before turning back to say, ‘Nothing out there!’ Seth Shostak.

**Philae is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanied the Rosetta spacecraft until its designated landing on Comet67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko (67P), more than ten years after departing Earth.

The lander is named after the Philae obelisk bearing a bilingual inscription used along with the Rosetta Stone to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics.

“For many centuries, humans have speculated that there might be planetary systems around other stars and that there could be extraterrestrial life there and even intelligent being. However, those were simply speculations, and now we have evidence for the first part of these ideas.” George Smoot.
