Chandra Wickramasinghe: Life Will Find a Way
More on the mechanics and implications of Panspermia, the idea that life originated out there and is seeded throughout the universe. Chandra Wickramasinghe discusses how panspermia answers the limitations to and supports aspects of Darwinian natural selection, and why the Big Bang is not the only solution to the observations said to support it. We also talk about why this idea is so important today on many levels. Renowned astronomers Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe are panspermia's leading proponents.

Microbes from Outer Space
Laura Lee speaks with renowned astronomer Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe and Barry DiGregorio about Microbes from Outer Space in a special two-part series. Renowned astronomers Dr. Wickramasinghe and Sir Fred Hoyle theorize that influenza epidemics may originate with microbes from outer space. How do they get to Earth? On the tails of passing comets and meteors. Barry DiGregorio,  head of ICAMSR, the International Committee Against the Mars Sample Return, says NASA's plan to bring rock samples back from Mars is an unwise invitation for further ET microbial contamination of Earth.
