Recalling her experience of being in space, she said that the earth looked very attractive from high above.

Renowned for being the first British person in space, Dr. Helen Sharman is making headlines for another claim.

Sharman while talking to a local newspaper said that she is confident about extraterrestrial life existing as there are billions of stars still unexplored and unheard of and that there must be all sorts of different forms of life present out there.

She has recently given a statement where she declared that Aliens do exist and there is a sure shot possibility that they live with us. "We were over the Pacific Ocean", she added.

"Aliens exist, there's no two ways about it", Sharman said in an interview with The Observer magazine. People often describe me as the first British woman in space, but I was actually the first British person.

Sharman also hypothesized that aliens could be living on Earth: "Will they be like you and me, made up of carbon and nitrogen?". But, she is not very happy about people defining her by her gender.

'When Tim Peake went into space, some people simply forgot about me. "A individual going first would possibly perhaps most certainly perhaps be the norm, so I am happy that I obtained to upset that command". And she had no thoughts of the physical items she owned on Earth. When we flew over specific regions of the globe, we always thought of our loved ones below us. I heard the job ad for Britain's first astronaut on the radio while driving home from work.

A trained chemist Helen Sharman spent eight days in space in the Russian Mir space station.

She has not returned to space since, and was turned down for Space Projects with the European Space Agency in 1992 and 1998.

Helen Sharman also went on to add that aliens are far more advanced, and their definition surely goes beyond that of aliens being little men of green hue that use flying saucers.

The woman, who is credited as the first woman astronaut to venture into space from Britain, now serves in the chemistry department at Imperial College London.
