Red Rain - Extraterrestrial Life?

http://www.earthfiles.com/news/news....tegory=Science

Quote:
Five years ago in July to September 2001, several red-colored rains fell over Kerala. Before the first of several rains over two months, people said they heard a loud boom. Then red rain fell and stained white T-shirts. <snip>

He told me by phone in early June that when he first saw the red rain magnified, he was struck by the beautiful rust color of what seemed to be living cells. The cell diameters averaged 10 microns, a little bigger than a human blood cell which is about 7 microns.

Quote:
Over several months, Dr. Louis began experimenting with different temperatures to see if the cells would respond. As the temperature rose, he saw more activity. Eventually he got up to 300 degrees Celsius, which is about 600 degrees Fahrenheit. He also increased the pressure to 300 pounds per square centimeter. It is assumed that normal Earth life would die at such a high temperature and pressure. But the red-walled cells in the Kerala rain water seemed to thrive.

Quote:
As he watched, the cells produced smaller cells internally that were colorless, or whitish. He began calling those new, little cells “daughters” of the original “mother” cells. Once he counted as many as fifteen daughter cells bud inside one of the adult “mother cells.” As the daughter cells grew, their cell walls also became red and eventually, the daughter cells erupted through the wall of the mother cell. This is clearly a process of replication. In normal Earth biology, replication of cell life requires the presence of DNA. But Dr. Louis could not find evidence of DNA in the proliferating cells inside his test tubes.

Quote:
Implication If No DNA in Kerala Red Rain Cells?

Q: IF THERE IS NO DNA IN ALL OF THE RED RAIN CELLS, THEN IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE SOME FORM OF REPLICATING LIFE THAT IS NOT UNDERSTOOD AT ALL?

A: Absolutely! That I find very – if that’s the case, it’s very exciting. But as far as we know, all life depends on DNA. There has to be some pattern-holding template in life because replications mean that patterns are held.

Q: BUT ISN’T DNA ONLY KNOWN ON THE EARTH AND WE COULD BE DEALING WITH EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE THAT HAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT METABOLISM AND PROCESS OF REPLICATION?

A: If that is the case, then it’s amazing that these cells look so close to a living terrestrial cell. They have all the trappings of terrestrial cells – cell walls and there is slime around them, which is no doubt proteinaceous. There are certainly proteins in the cells. So the proteins have to be coded in some way. There is no known mechanism that we have on the Earth in terrestrial biology for coding proteins except with DNA.

Q: HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHAT MAKES THE CELLS RED WHEN THEY ARE RED?

A: No, we haven’t. We’ve looked, but it’s not a heme-related blood would be the obvious thing to go for and look for a heme-related molecule and we haven’t found that. It is a pigment of some kind and we have not gone as far as identifying the pigment.

Q: SO, RIGHT NOW EVEN THE RED COLOR IN THE CELLS IS UNIDENTIFIED?

A: Unidentified, yes.

Interesting stuff.

yellow rain was in X-files... then they thought it was El Chupacabra... then they realized it was just some stupid NASA .. and after that, the FBI covered it up.

So red rain must be the opposite.
