Video: NASA Finds Evidence of Life in Space

Newsmax Contributor Tom Borell Expresses Skepticism

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

Data collected from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope discovered evidence of life in exoplanet K2-18 b.

The finding of carbon dioxide and methane in the exoplanet’s atmosphere suggests the possibility of life. The observation of these gases match the other exoplanet that have oceans on its surface.

The Washington Post explained K2-18 b, was found in 2015 and it’s within a star’s “habitable zone,” a range that is neither too hot nor too cold to host liquid water.”

A segment on Newsmax TV’s “Wake Up America Weekend” discussed NASA’s finding with retired NASA Astronaut Captain Winston Scott and Newsmax contributor Tom Borelli Ph.D.

Scott was excited by the finding saying, “This is quite the exciting news, thinking that the oldest question that people have, that [is there] life someplace else out in the universe.”

He went on to say the finding is not definitive of signs of life.

Borelli also said the Webb Space Telescope observation was exciting but expressed skepticism that it meant there was life on the exoplanet. He explained carbon dioxide on earth is a result of life in terms of respiration where humans inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide but the carbon based gas is also a result of volcanic activity.

On another topic, both Scott and Borelli expressed deep doubt in extraterrestrial bodies that were recently shown in Mexico.
