NASA chief Bill Nelson has reiterated that the universe is not the only living thing on Earth. Current estimates put the universe at 13.5 billion years old. At the same time, he is adamant that there may be another star like the Sun and other planets like Earth.
He reiterated the idea of aliens in an interview with CNBC. He added that NASA, the US space agency, was examining the matter further. NASA has been researching Sun-like stars, habitable planets, and extraterrestrial life for years.
He also recalled their historic achievements in the interview. The small helicopter engine successfully completed its ninth flight to Mars. Ingenuity flew to Mars in 166.4 seconds at a speed of up to five meters per second.
This time, Ingenuity landed on the sandy part of Mars, as part of a test to see if it would sink into the sand. He added that the experiment was successfully completed.
