A new study discovers the likelihood of extraterrestrial life in the universe.
Do aliens exist? If they did, would we know?<div class="rm-shortcode" data-media_id="GrRfHnDG" data-player_id="FvQKszTI" data-rm-shortcode-id="921a32fff7742d818189f3c3930027ec"> <div id="botr_GrRfHnDG_FvQKszTI_div" class="jwplayer-media" data-jwplayer-video-src="https://content.jwplatform.com/players/GrRfHnDG-FvQKszTI.js"> <img src="https://cdn.jwplayer.com/thumbs/GrRfHnDG-1920.jpg" class="jwplayer-media-preview" /> </div> <script src="https://content.jwplatform.com/players/GrRfHnDG-FvQKszTI.js"></script> </div>
A leading British space scientist thinks there is life under the ice sheets of Europa.
- A British scientist named Professor Monica Grady recently came out in support of extraterrestrial life on Europa.
- Europa, the sixth largest moon in the solar system, may have favorable conditions for life under its miles of ice.
- The moon is one of Jupiter's 79.

There are several ways alien life could travel across space, scientists say.
Cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov lit a wildfire recently when he announced his team had found alien bacteria clinging to the outside of the International Space Station (ISS). It took place during a spacewalk several years ago. Those samples were returned to Earth and have been analyzed recently by Roscosmos—the Russian space agency. He claims Roscosmos scientists conclude the bacteria isn’t from Earth. One thing is for sure, there’s living bacteria clinging to the outside of the ISS! Whether it’s extraterrestrial or not is another matter.

New research on Uranus' magnetosphere could help scientists learn about distant systems, and refine the ways they search for alien life.
Uranus has a “switch-like” magnetosphere that opens and closes once every rotation of the planet, exposing it to deadly solar winds, according to researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the US.
