Water is known to have composed around 70 percent of the Earth's surface, but more than that, a huge reservoir of a massive ocean are speculated to have vast quantities of water as far as 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) below the surface. Accordingly, scientists believe the unexplained bodies of water might have hold life forms that are unusual and be the key to the discovery of aliens.

Aliens' Gateway To Earth

As reported by The Sun, researcher at Northwestern University in Illinois, Steve Jacobsen has revealed that a part of Earth's core called the mantle could contain several oceans' worth of water. He explained that the deepest of the subterranean seas is believed to stretch about a third of the way down to Earth's molten core. In one of his statements, he allegedly claimed that if it wasn't down there all this time, humans and the geodynamic activity that causes volcanoes - which are important for generating soil and sustaining life on the planet would have long been submerged.

On the other hand, it was found that the first series of study conducted by the researchers from Florida State University and the University of Edinburgh have hypothesized that water exists far deeper in the Earth than previously thought, stored in a mineral called brucite. In one of their statements reported by Daily Mail, study lead researcher Mainak Mookherjee, was quoted to have said that they were not expecting that water could be kept by hydrous minerals such as brucite at these depths.

However, through the parallel study of researchers from Northwestern University in Illinois, it finally gave light as their findings suggests that the water content is much deeper than anyone have seen before, at a third of the way to the edge of Earth's core.

Furthermore, an expert from Harvard University has allegedly spotted a single-celled organism called "Geogemma barossii" thriving near the deep-sea hydrothermal vents off the northwest U.S. coast which he described as alien. The microorganism was reportedly able to survive in temperatures of up to 120 degrees centigrade which many scientists believe to be impossible. The discovery of the said microorganism has left many scientists convinced that if an "alien" like this one can survive at such extreme conditions, what else might be lurking down there in the depths of our planet?
