Alien Life May Resemble Giant Jellyfish

A compelling if fantastical vision of soft pod creatures floating on gas currents through the soupy atmospheres of exoplanets. Via India Today:

Aliens may not actually resemble the little green creatures Hollywood loves to portray them as. Rather, they are more likely to look like ‘giant jellyfish’, if a leading British space scientist is to be believed.

“My vision of aliens is an inhuman, silicon-based life form that looks much more like a jellyfish… It is likely that there is extra-terrestrial life – it is just more alien than you’d imagine,” Maggie Aderin-Pocock, satellite expert and government adviser in UK, said.

“But while they might resemble jellyfish, they will live not in the sea but in the atmosphere of a Jupiter-like planet, where they float around,” Aderin-Pocock said. Rather than surviving on carbon, which is the basis of all life, the “silicon generated” creatures are able to live off light absorbed through their ‘skin’ and chemicals sucked in through their giant mouths.

  1. I’ve read several reports of people witnessing Jellyfish type UFO’s that, as the witnesses said “emit a soft glow and float through the sky as if they were floating through an ocean”.

    Anyone interested in LIVE reports of UFO’s would be well advised to visit MUFON’s (Mutual UFO Network) live feed at

    MUFON sent out a research team to investigate the many reports I made in the fall/winter of 2004 and setup a night watch. They made digital copies of a short film I took of several objects in the night sky which was largely unimpressive and at a distance but they said it was a good video compared to a lot they receive. Unfortunately the seasons were changing and there was Coastal Fog that rolled in each night obscuring the night sky and we weren’t able to film anything until the seasons changes. I’ve been as close as 20ft from a 100ft Metallic Disk and experiences Missing Time after being bombarded with light from the Object. I’ve also seen up to 14 orange “Orbs” flying in formation and darting in all directions across the horizon, the witnesses that were there with me were shocked that what I had told them were appearing in the night sky indeed were real. If I were able to catch on camera what I’ve seen in the dozen plus sightings I’ve had it would change the world forever, it’s certainly changed my world.

    One scientist says he thinks aliens will look like jellyfish and it makes headlines?

    What the serious fuck?

      Sorry. “Satellite expert and government advisor.”

      Fuck all of you.

        Also, it’s a she, I guess, and the stuff she’s describing is exactly what we all saw on consecutive episodes of The Universe on Neflix.

        Again – fucks to everyone.

    Xeno-shokushu goukan, giant sucking mouths, JAXA will be all over this.

  6. Or they might resemble Futurama’s floating brains!

  7.  Hell yeah, I’ve seen them too man.
