UPDATE REGARDING LATEST DEVELOPMENTS
At the age of 67 and after working continuously at the University of Sheffield for some 42 years I have decided to retire, largely because of antagonism, for my work by certain sections of the University and because funding has now dried up. Fortunately, we recently obtained funds from a private donor to do a launch above Wyoming in the US and once again found biological entities in the stratosphere. As before, these entities were not associated with pollen fungal spores or grass shards (this being particularly relevant above the Wyoming grasslands), which once again suggests that the biological entities isolated were not carried up from Earth but instead arrived from space. We are currently setting up a collaboration with workers in Sri Lank, arranged by our long-standing colleague, Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, and hope thereby to continue our work. We have yet to hear of anyone having seriously attempted to replicate our work, despite the low costs involved and the relative ease with which this could be achieved. Reports of microbes on the ISS by Russian scientist might yet add such corroboration (Why is NASA not commenting either way on this work?). This website has largely been operated by on one my ex-PhD students, now Dr Tareq Omairi, to whom I am extremely grateful. Tareq is now moving on in his career, so his Twitter and Facebook interactions may become less frequent.
