Life’s tell-tale molecule ..

Post by brian livesey »

NASA has announced that it may have discovered a molecule in the atmosphere of an exoplanet that can only be produced by life.
NASA stresses that more data in required to clinch it. We live in interesting times.

I think I read about this on the BBC Science website. It's incredible how far technology has advanced in such a relatively short space of time.

I wonder what the global reaction would be if extraterrestrial life was discovered?
