The search for aliens is on since so many years. Scientists, researchers and conspiracy theorists have new studies coming up every other week regarding the presence of extra-terrestrials. Earlier focusing only on the red planet Mars, scientists have widened their scope of research and looking in the far reaches of the universe. The latest study states there could be purple aliens out there! If there are any other organisms living on other planets they would have a lavender hue due to harnessing the power of the sun. The study was published in the International Journal of Astrobiology. Aliens Lived Underground on Mars Billions of Years Ago, Finds New Study. 

The scientists do not stop at the other planets but also state that even on Earth before out plants harnessed the energy of the Sun, there were purple organisms. So the scientists are saying the microscopic life on other planets will follow the same pattern, thus giving a new way of looking at extra-terrestrial life. Shiladitya DasSarma, one of the researchers said, "There are already ways to detect green life from space, he said, but scientists might need to start looking for purple, too." Russian Time-Traveller Claims He Met Aliens and Spoke to Them About the Earth, See Video to Know What Extraterrestrials Think of Us! 

DasSharma had given a theory earlier about Earth being populous with purple organisms at the primitive age. These purple bacteria helped the plants to evolve into absorbing green light. "If these organisms were present in sufficient densities on an exoplanet, those reflection properties would be imprinted on that planet's reflected light spectrum," said the co-author Schwieterman. So right now, this study gives a new dimension into the search of aliens, which has already been bundled with several other methods and theories.
