A group of Russian scientists have taken detailed photographs of fossil microorganisms, including seaweed, that could have originated only from another planet and were inside a meteorite that may be older than Earth. </p><div><p>Researchers made high-resolution photographs of fossil bacteria preserved inside the Orgile meteorite found in France in 1864. The largest, celestial body in the rare CI chondrite group has long held off scientific interest due to high concentrations of mercury and isotopically. These types are not specific to meteorites. <span class="read-more-big__container"> <span class="read-more-big__content"> <span class="read-more-big__subtitle">Also on rt.com</span> <span class="read-more-big__title">Life on Venus?

Yet, now, scientists at the Institute of Paleontology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Joint Atomic Research Institute (JINR) – one of the world’s leading research centers in the field of nuclear physics – say they have received “Undisputed” Evidence of life on another planet, one that may be older than Earth.
“The pictures we have made have been clearly explained. Nobody can argue with them now, “ News agency RIA Novosti told Alexi Rozanov, chief research officer of the JINR Astrobiology Center. Scientists plan to release an album containing all the photographs in November. However, they have already shared some pictures with the RIA.
Ruzanov admitted that his group was not the first to find traces of life in the Origill meteorite. All previously discovered evidence, however, was “Misinterpretation” As scientists refused to accept it as true.
The Orgile meteorite was found to be the center of the speculation repeatedly found to have found traces of supernatural life in it. At some point in 1965, a seed capsule was found in one of its pieces. However, the entire case was soon described as a hoax.
Later, a famous NASA astronomer, Richard Hoover, claimed that he found fossils in the meteorite, but NASA distanced itself from its claims at the time, which lacked peer reviews. Now, according to the RIA, Hoover has joined the Russian team to prove that the celestial object actually contains fossil bacteria.

The fossils were studied in detail with the help of high-resolution electronic microscopes, which allowed researchers to discover several species of protected bacteria within the space reef. Microorganisms were found inside fossil meteorites and not on its surface, scientists noted, saying that they could not reach there after falling to Earth.
Some of the most striking discoveries include fossils of so-called magnetic bacteria. They rely on a planetary magnetic field to orient themselves in the environment and are typically found in aquatic environments such as swamps, seas, or lakes. Recently, the group also found traces of one-celled seaweed in the Oragil meteorite, as well as some species of amoebae with microorganisms.
These discoveries suggest that such microorganisms can only originate on another planet, which has a magnetic field and is at least partially covered by liquid water, Mikhail Kapralov, a junior fellow at the JINR Radiobiology Laboratory Explained.
It is not known how old the Orgill meteorite is, but scientists believe it may very well be older than the Earth or perhaps even older than the solar system.

“We show … that there is life in space. Or, at least, it was [there], “ The scientist said.
The news came just a day after an international team of researchers announced the discovery of phosphine gas in the clouds above Venus. Phosphine is considered an important biosignature because it is known to be produced only by some bacteria and may not be the result of some chemical or physical processes that do not involve life forms. Scientists concluded that a “Chance” That “Something may remain in Venus’s clouds.”
