The fossil was proof that there had been extraterrestrial life. George Glenn discovered Evidence 01 in an asteroid in Europa's vicinity. He returned seven years later, along with his discovery. It was taken to a research colony, Zodiac, at Lagrange point 5 and was intensively examined. It was concluded that the fossil was genuine, and that the alien species had intelligence equal or greater to terrestrial whale. After four decades of research, the origin of Evidence 01 is still unclear. The fossil is located inside the PLANT Supreme Council building at Aprilius One, the capital of the PLANTs.
- Evidence 01 was the first instance of extraterrestrial life to appear in the Gundam franchise, though the first living alien would not appear until the beings beyond the transfer gate in ∀ Gundam: Wind of the Moon.
