'After water, check for life on moon'

Noted astrophysicist Jayant Narlikar has urged that the moon be scanned for micro-organisms in its environment, especially in areas where traces of water have been found. Speaking during a lecture on ‘Searching for micro-life in the earth’s atmosphere’ in Goa on Sunday, Mr Narlikar said the discovery of water on the moon called for a fresh perspective on the issue of life on the moon.

“If we have found water on the moon, then we must look for signs of life there,” said Mr Narlikar, a Padma Vibhushan Award winner. He added that there were traces of life even 41-km above the earth.
