A Russian-US-German team of astronauts landed in Kazakhstan after 165 days in space, with their discovery of new forms of life labelled “one of the most important discoveries” in recent history.  Professor Wickramasinghe is quoted extensively in an article by Sputnik UK, arguing: “This is clear proof that there are complex life forms far away from the Earth”.  He was also quoted on this topic along with Professor Milton Wainwright in an article in the Daily Mail (21 August).
