Life in space - level 2
British scientists think that they have discovered life in space. It is not little green men but very small organisms.
The organisms were found on a research balloon which was sent 27 kilometres (16.7 miles) into the atmosphere. Scientists discovered the organisms when the balloon was back on the ground but they are sure that the organisms are from the atmosphere. The only way the organisms got into the atmosphere is from space. They are too heavy to be lifted from the ground.
This discovery is revolutionary and it might change modern science.
Difficult words: organism (living thing), atmosphere (air around the earth), revolutionary (when something is revolutionary, it can change everything).
