In 1991, Dr. Helen Sharman, made her first visit to the Russian space station, Mir. Dr. Sharman was Britain’s first astronaut. Following her visit, there were six other Briton’s to be launched to Mir. Earlier this year, Dr. Sharman made the unexpected announcement in the UK’s Sunday Observer that, in her own words, “Aliens exist, there’s no two ways about it.” 1
According to her, “There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life.” She went on to ask, “Will they be like you and me, made up of carbon and nitrogen? Maybe not.” Dr. Sharman should know about such things, she has a doctorate in chemistry. The chemist spent eight days on Mir as a researcher when she was 27 years old, making her one of the youngest astronauts in history.
Then in a tantalizing theory that should make all readers suspicious of their friends and work colleagues, Sharman concluded by saying, “It’s possible they’re here right now and we simply can’t see them.” 2 This writer would also add that not only is it possible that extraterrestrials are living on Earth among us, they also may look just like us or nearly like us.
