An academic journal authored by an eminent chemist at Columbia University questioned the possibility of advanced dinosaur life on another planet in space could exist if they were given more time without extinction.

Dr. Ronald Breslow has a resume that shows he holds Columbia Universities highest academic rank and has also served as president of the American Chemical Society and is also the recipient of the National Medal of Science among many other top honors.

Breslow raised the possibility of advanced dinosaur life on other planets in his journal titled, “Evidence for the Likely Origin of Homochirality in Amino Acids, Sugars, and Nucleosides on Prebiotic Earth,” which was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Mostly Dr. Breslow’s report talks about the building blocks of life such as D amino acids and L sugars and the part that meteors played in the whole scheme of things. However, at the conclusion of the paper he speculates that maybe on another planet somewhere in the universe that can sustain life, they may have had the same evolutionary process like we have had on this planet. But maybe there was no extinction event like here and the dinosaurs could be co-existing with human-like life forms or other mammals.

Dr. Breslow says, “Such life forms could well be advanced versions of dinosaurs, if mammals did not have the good fortune to have the dinosaurs wiped out by an asteroidal collision, as on Earth. We would be better off not meeting them.”
