For centuries, humanity has dreamed of life beyond Earth. The idea that we’re not alone in the universe is tantalizing – the stuff of countless science fiction stories. But according to a new study, the existence of life on other planets may not be in the realm of fantasy. A team of scientists now claim, in fact, that a set of photos taken by NASA are actually proof that there’s something out there.
Humans have long pondered the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” And the concept of cosmic pluralism – the idea that other worlds may host alien life – can actually be traced as far back as the 6th century B.C. At that time, though, it was predominantly a philosophical school of thought.
