NASA Launches Team of Experts Dedicated to Finding Alien Life on Other Planets Alongside Scholars from Leading Universities

• NASA’s newly formed ‘Center for Life Detection Science’ (CLDS) will tackle the question, ‘Are we alone?’ NASA will work alongside a team of non-NASA scientists and scholars from Georgetown University and Georgia Tech University to track down any signs of extraterrestrial life on other planets.

• Tori Hoehler, the principle investigator of CLDS and a researcher at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, said, ‘We now have the scientific and engineering expertise to address this profound question with the clarity of scientific evidence — and we have a great community of scientists ready for that grand challenge.” “[W]e need to develop tools and strategies that are tailored to detecting life in the unique conditions of other worlds, which are very different not only from Earth but also from each other.”

• TechnoSearch is an online portal to help researchers access exoplanet data from NASA’s SETI project. Jill Tarter, a co-founder of the SETI institute, spearheaded the project which has collated data from as far back as 1960 and continues to add the latest findings.

• Says Sarah Stewart Johnson of Georgetown University, the goal of her team is to try to recognize life ‘as we don’t know it’, through examining biosignatures of very different lifeforms. Britney Schmidt of Georgia Tech will investigate the possibilities of past or present life in the oceans of the icy, outer moons of our solar system, or on ancient Mars. More researchers will be added as the program matures.

[Editor’s Note]   So long as these types of deep state institutions lead the effort to detect signs of extraterrestrial life, you can bet that we will never find any.

 

NASA has put together a team of scientists to track down alien life on other planets.

The newly-formed Center for Life Detection Science (CLDS) will tackle the question, ‘Are we alone?’ and NASA claims science may soon provide a definitive answer.

Experts from within NASA will work alongside people outside the space agency to track down any signs of extraterrestrial existence.

Tori Hoehler, the principle investigator of CLDS and a researcher at Nasa’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, said: ‘We now have the scientific and engineering expertise to address this profound question with the clarity of scientific evidence — and we have a great community of scientists ready for that grand challenge.
‘The search for life beyond Earth cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach.

‘To give ourselves the best shot at success, we need to develop tools and strategies that are tailored to detecting life in the unique conditions of other worlds, which are very different not only from Earth but also from each other.’

NASA’s finest minds will work alongside scholars from Georgetown University and Georgia Tech University.
Sarah Stewart Johnson of Georgetown University defines the goal of her team as trying to recognise life ‘as we don’t know it.’
