Where Mrs NW shares an interesting science fact or finding (as opposed to fiction).
Ever wondered what aliens might look like?
Well, apparently some researchers at Cambridge University have thought about this and have published their findings in the International Journal of Astrobiology (who knew that was an actual field of study!).
According to their paper, scientitst can predict what aliens might look like based on how complexity of beings was achieved on earth and the theory that aliens may undergo natural selection. They suggest you could expect to find anything from a single celled organism to a more complex being. In the paper, they include some slightly hilarious drawings of a disfigured giraffe as well as what aliens might look like. It’s definitely worth a look!
