A recently discovered essay written by Winston Churchill has revealed that the late British statesman was open to the possibility of alien life on other planets.
In 1939, Churchill wrote a popular science article, in which he mused about the possibility of some kind of extra-terrestrial life on some other planets.
The eleven-page typed draft was reportedly intended for a newspaper. The essay was updated in the 1950s but it never appeared in any newspaper. In early 1980s, it was passed to a U.S. museum, where it remained until it was rediscovered last year.
