Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe originally discovered bacteria in space with the famous Yorkshire astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle in 1974. Here he presents a lecture detailing recent discoveries of fossilised micro-organisms found in meteorites, and also how living diatoms (a type of algae) have been found falling into Earth's atmosphere from space.These observations continue to strengthen Hoyle and Wickramasinghe's theory of Cometary Panspermia in which microbes found in space originally grew and multiplied in comets in the early period of our solar system before seeding life on planet Earth.

Professor Wickramasinghe is a Team Member of the European Space Agency's Rosetta Mission which will see a robotic probe land on comet 67P/Churyumov--Gerasimenko in 2014 on the 40 anniversary of Cometary Panspermia theory.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe presented "The Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life" at the 5th Annual British Exopolitics Expo at the University of Huddersfield on September 28th 2013.
