ALIEN life will be discovered by humans within twenty years, a top Russian astronomer has predicted.

The director of the renowned Russian Academy Of Sciences’ Applied Astronomy Institute insists contact with extra-terrestrials will be made in the next two decades.

Andrei Finkelstein said: “The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms.

“Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years.”

Since ten per cent of known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth, Finkelstein said it would be inevitable that life could be found there.

At an international forum dedicated to the search for spacemen he also said that aliens would most likely resemble humans, with two arms, two legs and a head.

But, “they may have different colour skin,” he added.

Finkelstein went on to say that he believes those looking for evidence of extra-terrestrial life have been doing it the wrong way.

Most scientists searching have been scouring the galaxy for radio signals sent out by alien civilisations.

He insists – it should be us who should be making the contact with them and not the other way round.

He added: “The whole time we have been searching for extra-terrestrial civilisations, we have mainly been waiting for messages from space and not the other way.”

In March a Nasa scientist sparked controversy after claiming to have found tiny fossils of alien bugs inside meteorites discovered on Earth.
