For some reason this news is not featured on the front page of news outlets around the world. Maybe it is too preliminary and unofficial, but if true would confirm what Peat and a host of other biologists have been saying for years - life is common around the Universe and we just don't know how to find it. One of the main reasons for not intensifying search for alien life or even looking in more obvious places is that official dogma states that no commonly known Earth life-form can survive the harsh conditions in open space. The radiation and temperatures close to absolute zero would quickly kill all living creatures, the experts claimed. Well, tell that to the bacteria happily living outside the ISS for years :):

A cosmonaut says Russia is studying possible alien life found on the outside of the space station
Russians claim they’ve found the first extraterrestrial life, and it was right under our noses

"...Russian cosmonauts have reportedly discovered tiny bacteria on a swab collected from outside the International Space Station, and they’re confident that the organisms didn’t originate on our planet. If the discovery can be confirmed, it would be the very first concrete evidence of extraterrestrial life. That’s a pretty big deal."

"...The swabs, which were collected years ago but seemingly overlooked, contained living bacteria which may have come from outer space. “Somehow these swabs reveal bacteria that were absent during the launch of the ISS module,” Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov explains. “That is, they have come from outer space and settled along the external surface. They are being studied so far and it seems that they pose no danger. Along with the purported alien bacteria, other bacteria thought to have originated on Earth was also found on the swabs. Surviving in the vacuum of space is no easy feat, and intense temperature fluctuations failed to kill the bacteria over the course of three years, which is mighty impressive. It’s unclear exactly how the researchers were able to differentiate between terrestrial bacteria and the alien bacteria that appeared within the same samples."

I highly doubt it personally. I think they are just bacteria from Earth that have undergone great mutation due to the conditions they endure. For them to be alien would challenge a whole lot of what we think we know.

They found bacterial life on mars over 40 years ago but it got the same response, mainly denial and silence.

Lots of things are growing on the outside of sound-stages in LA. Especially in the Valley.

If bacteria in space is the same as Earth bacteria, would the bacteria in space still be called alien?

I suspect this isn't huge news yet for a few reasons:
1) Russians made the discovery
2) It hasn't been confirmed
3) Bacteria are tiny

Haven't we known things like water bears can survive in outer space? The idea of Panspermia has been around for a while and was by no means a fringe idea.

Anyone seen the recent movie "Life?" It's a decent sci fi flick, tells a story not unlike these scientists at a space station finding and studying aline life.

Ugh sorry but I thought "Life" was just a typical amalgamation of predictable sci-fi cliches (with a large hollywood budget). It was basically just Alien+Interstellar, the former being the rip-off material for countless space horror/action flicks, and the latter a stale reboot of NASA movies of the 90's.

If you want good, realistic sci-fi full of philosophy and inspiration, check out "Contact"

I agree, that's why I said "decent" and not "good." It's entertaining if you're a movie person.

I loved Contact, and Arrival is a great alien movie as well. They don't, unfortunately, deal with simple life though.

If it's real, it might be our distant ancestors.

It looks more and more likely that life can exist under exoplanet ice sheets under a variety of levels of radiation, icy exoplanets are 1000s of times more common than rocky planets, so there could be a whole lot of life floating around stars and on interstellar comets.

Interesting! Bacteria also live in the deep sea under enormous pressure, in the dark, and on the side of toxic and extremely hot hydrothermal vents. And then there's the amazing abilities of tardigrades, including in space...

To survive for some time, yes. But to live in space as their natural environment, don't it has been shown yet. Otherwise, water bears would have been sent to Mars with the probes that got there and landed. I still think it should have been done (sending water bears to Mars) but the results may not have been very palatable to people and would have probably violated a few of tenets of the Central Dogma in evolutionary biology.
