Sharman recently spoke with Observer Magazine about her beliefs on the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe, and had some very surprising things to say.
She seemed extremely confident in her beliefs, saying with certainty:
"Aliens exist, there's no two ways about it."
"There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life," she added.
Sharman surmised that aliens could even walk among us, but perhaps they are just invisible to our senses.
"Will they be like you and me, made up of carbon and nitrogen? Maybe not. It's possible they're here right now and we simply can't see them," Sharman explained.
Aliens were not actually the primary focus of the interview, but rather, it was a discussion about her career and experiences as the first Briton in space. Sharman also noted her frustration about the media regularly referring to her as "the first British woman in space," instead of simply "the first Briton."
