November 10, 2013: Aliens Among Us

Alien Scientists in England say they've discovered alien life! They sent a balloon up into the stratosphere, and it came back carrying micro-organisms. They're pretty sure these organisms didn't just hitch a ride on the way up, too; they're unusual, not the kinds of bugs you find on our planet, and apparently there was cosmic dust present. The organisms are dead, so there's no risk of an alien virus turning us all into pod people (we hope), but the scientists think they can extract DNA from these xeno-critters. Among other things, this means we'll eventually be able to inject ourselves with alien DNA, and voluntarily turn into pod people (we hope)!
