5.2K Former NASA astronauts have revealed that there is alien life all over our universe which he confirms via the discovery of the exoplanet Proxima B, where scientists speculate life may have existed. An exoplanet is a planet that orbits a star rather than suns!
The former astronaut does not agree with these scientific experts that aliens will allow themselves to be discovered by our current scientific methods. Leroy spent 230 days in space and held the view that alien lifeforms would not lead to a good situation for the Earth if they are discovered whether intentionally or not. ARE YOU READY FOR DISCLOSURE? In a column at space. Com, Chiao said: ‘The possibility of extraterrestrial life has fascinated humans since our awareness that such a thing could exist, and with the recent discovery of a possibly Earth-like planet around a star in our cosmic backyard, tantalizing new questions are being raised about the possibility of finding life elsewhere in the universe.’ Most astronauts do not spend over 100 days in space, but as Chiao spent so long in space, his opinion holds weight
In fact, he was one of the commanders of the International Space Station and while there, he completed four missions in space and had the opportunity to perform space walks. Over six space walks during an impressive 15-year career. On the surface, the exoplanet Proxima B may appear similar to the Earth; it also is entirely different according to Chiao. He states that the planet’s orbital period is only 11 days, and it does not rotate on its axis but has a radiation environment that is higher than the planet earth. Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute in 2014, told the US Congress that at least half a dozen worlds exist beside earth in our solar system. Chiao is one of the few people on Earth who had the privilege of going to space and living in space for an extended period of time. The former astronaut was one of the commanders of the International Space Station and complete four mission in space and had the opportunity to perform SIX spacewalks during his 15-year-long career at NASA.
Interestingly, Chiao believes that the discovery of exoplanet Proxima B, in the Proxima Centauri system may be one step closer towards finding out we are not alone in the universe. Proxima B has been dubbed by many as the second Earth. The exoplanet is located just at the right distance from its star in order to have liquid water which in turn means it could also be home to alien lifeforms. ‘Measurements indicate that Proxima b is a rocky planet, just slightly larger than Earth, orbiting the star at the right distance to be able to support liquid water on its surface, and thus perhaps life,’ wrote Chiao in the article. While Proxima B may be remarkably similar to Earth, it also is entirely different explains Chiao. In the article, Chiao indicates that ‘the planet’s orbital period is only 11 days, and it does not rotate on its own axis. Also, the radiation environment is estimated to be much harsher than that for Earth. Still, scientists say some kind of life count exists there.’
Writing about Alien life, Chiao states: ‘I believe that life is always starting in some parts of the universe at the same time that it is dying out in others,’ he shares. We don’t know about each other, simply because the distances are so vast. We won’t easily find evidence of alien life around another star, especially those that are hundreds of millions of light-years away, or more.’ However, Chiao isn’t the only one who thinks we arent alone out there. In 2014 as scientists met with Congress, Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the California-based Search of Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute told the U.S. said that “At least a half-dozen other worlds (besides Earth) that might have life are in our solar system.” “The chances of finding it, I think, are good, and if that happens, it’ll happen in the next 20 years, depending on the financing, added Shostak.”
