We all have the doubt about the life on the other planets other than the earth. Jayanth Vishnu Narlikar from India is one of the scientists who are doing research on this topic. He had got the Padma Bhushan award and he is one of the internationally known scientists in astronomy. Under the guidance of Jayanth, they have found the microscopic particles belonging to other planets in the research done in Hyderabad.
Jayanth Narlikar was born in Kolhapur in Maharashtra on July 19th in 1938. His father was a professor in Banaras University and his mother was Sanskrit teacher. Jayanth got the B.Sc degree from Banaras University and he did M.A in mathematics from the Cambridge University. He had got the PhD under the guidance of the popular scientist Fred ho. Jayanth had contributed a lot to the theoretical physics, cosmology and astronomy. At first he worked as a professor in institute of theoretical astronomy in Cambridge University. He came back to India and worked as lecturer in the Tata institute of fundamental research (1972-88). After that Jayanth worked as the director of the inter university center for astronomy and astrophysics. At present he is retired but he is continuing his research in the position of Ameritis professor.
Jayanth’s argument about the life on other planets had become strong when the ISRO conducted an experiment in Hyderabad in January in 2001. They had sent a huge balloon which is connected with the payload above 41 kilometers above the earth and recognized the microscopic particles there. Narlikar had estimated that the microscopic particles belong to the other planets as the microscopic particles from earth can’t go up to that distance. He said that there is life and weather on other planets also. This experiment had led to the research on the mars planet. He named the microscopic particles as Janibacter Hoyle, Bacillus Isronensis and Bacillus Aryabhatta. Narlikar had written many articles, stories and novels in Hindi, English and Marathi.
