A British astrounaut claims to believe in UFOs and says there might be alien, extra terrestrial life on other planets.The 50-year-old, who now heads the science, engineering and computing faculty at Kingston University, London, also said she "refused to watch" the "Gravity" movie starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. By joining the Project Juno in 199, Dr Helen Sharman became the first Brit in space. Dr Sharman who went into space after answering a job ad stating "Astronaut wanted. No experience necessary" explained that at least from the trailer the movie seemed unrealistic to her. She flew to the Mir space station and spent eight days in space after being chosen from 13,000 people who applied to a private British space programme called Project Juno. She said of the movie: “I have not seen it. I was sent the trailer - I’m sure it’s a very interesting film but it didn’t look realistic to me and it did not appeal to me. Apollo 13 however is a fantastic film - very realistic.” When asked if alien life existed on earth, she replied firmly: "There must be." Read more from The Voice of Russia.
