For centuries, humanity has dreamed of life beyond Earth. The idea that we’re not alone in the universe is tantalizing – the stuff of countless science fiction stories. But according to a new study, the existence of life on other planets may not be in the realm of fantasy. A team of scientists now claim, in fact, that a set of photos taken by NASA are actually proof that there’s something out there.

Humans have long pondered the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” And the concept of cosmic pluralism – the idea that other worlds may host alien life – can actually be traced as far back as the 6th century B.C. At that time, though, it was predominantly a philosophical school of thought.

Nevertheless, the concept of cosmic pluralism persisted through to medieval times, when several Muslim scholars backed it. Around the 7th century, for example, Imam Muhammad al-Baqir noted, “Maybe you see that God created only this single world and that God did not create humans besides you. Well, I swear by God that God created thousands and thousands of worlds and thousands and thousands of humankind.”
