The never-before seen photograph shows a mysterious dragon-shaped organism found in space, which they claim also reveals that all life on Earth, including humans, is extraterrestrial in origin.
It was discovered in dust and particulate matter gathered deep in the Earth’s stratosphere.
Its finders say it is a “biological entity” made of carbon and oxygen - the building blocks of life.
And the scientists who made the incredible find insist there is no way it could have blown up into space from our planet - and so must have originated elsewhere in the universe.
It was discovered by Professor Milton Wainwright and his team from the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology.
Professor Wainwright sent balloons into the stratosphere 27 km above the Earth’s atmosphere to collect particles from space.
He claimed what they have discovered is not only proof that life exists in outer space, but that extraterrestrial organisms are continually raining down on earth.
