Recently, in an interview for the Observer Magazine, Dr. Helen Sharman stated: “Aliens exist, there’s no two ways about it. There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life.” Dr. Sharman also explained that even if the aliens are not formed of carbon and nitrogen like us, “it’s possible they’re here right now, and we simply can’t see them.”
Back in the day, Dr. Sherman marked a great path in history. She was the first British astronaut, enrolling on a mission in May 1991. The task involved the Soviet modular space station Mir. She told Observer Magazine that she is usually referred to as the first British woman in space. She also added: “It’s telling that we would otherwise assume it was a man.”
Helen Sharman is a chemist who succeeded in achieving the title of the first British astronaut. She was also the first woman to travel to the Mir space station in 1991. Sharman was initially picked for a project live on ITV, in 1989.
The task was dubbed as Project Juno and represented a collaboration with the Soviet Union and Britain. She was chosen in a process that allowed learning a foreign language, as well as reaching an educational, scientific, and aerospace background. The Soyuz TM-12 project, which involved Soviet astronauts Sergei Krikalev and Anatoly Artsebarsky, started in May 1991.
It lasted eight days, and they spent most of the time at the Mir space station. Sharman was only 27 years old when she traveled to space. Such a fact it made her the sixth youngest of the 556 people who have been sent into space.
However, her recent affirmations that aliens are already here only that we can’t see them are stunning as they come from a person with her experience. Obviously, there is no proof that the extraterrestrials are among us.
