Possibility Of Life On Venus

So it looks like Earth’s sister planet, Venus, an utterly inhospitable world at its surface with oven-like temperatures and crushing pressures, may harbour microbial life in its upper atmosphere.

Until now, astrobiologists have focused their search for life around liquid water and where it might be available now or in the past - such as the subsurface oceans on Jupiter’s moon Europa, Saturn’s moon Enceladus and, of course, Mars.

These extraordinary claims by scientists will require more concrete evidence to be proven. It will probably take a sampling mission to the planet to know for certain. But it certainly does open up the possibility that we will need to re-think longstanding ideas of where life might be found, how it originates and how common it might be in the universe.

There is actually multiple instances of sulphur based life forms on Earth usually around volcano lakes that can't survive in an oxygen atmosphere. There is also a possibility of oxygen based lifeforms who use copper to transport oxygen instead of iron like we do. If anything it proves that "little green men" is a possibility since we use iron to transport oxygen and basically our blood is red because the iron rusts when it oxidizes and makes our blood red whereas when copper oxidizes it goes green so any lifeform using that as a way to transport oxygen would have a green tint to it's skin.

Oh and then there is the possibility of life on somewhere really far out like Pluto, some bacteria's have been found in the Artic and Antarctic that can make their own antifreeze, there is actually a frog that can do it so even extreme cold isn't a barrier to life



Life isn't random, it is an eventuality, no matter what the conditions something will always evolve that is more than the sum of it's parts because evolution is an imperative, it doesn't think, it has no identity, it isn't a God, it has no concept of time, it has no concept at all because it doesn't think, it is just an occurrence that can't be prevented, it will always happen no matter what the conditions because it has no concept of conditions either, it just keeps throwing darts at a dartboard until it hits a bullseye.

We need to sort this planet first, before we go off looking for alternatives.

Sounds like my local

Was amazed to learn that a large percentage of our farts is made from Phosphine gas and that Phosphine is also highly poisonous. I may not be so quick to stick my head under the duvet in fututre..

I heard someone talking about this today on the radio. It's brilliant news if confirmed.
As long as they are friendly bacteria and not human killers like the Covid.
Maybe we should study them at arms length for a while before inviting them back to Earth.

They wouldn't be dangerous to us, oxygen would be lethal to them so even if they were brought here they would have to be kept in an artificial Sulphur atmosphere to live

All this space stuff is great, but lets fix this planet first and then go off on a space adventure then.

I bet my bottom dollar they won't find life in Venus.

The "evidence" is more just the possibility went from being 0% likely to 0.0000001% likely

The element compounds they found is already present on gas giants like Jupiter and Saturn. They just didn't expect it to be able to be created on a planet as small as Venus, so they need an explanation and of the 100's of explanations, one of the unlikely ones is "well, it might be micro life"

To justify their wage, try to get more money and show us the results of their research in 50 years and 100 billion spent to prove their theory.

I think spending billions on micro space farts is well worth it even though our planet is burning to a crisp

But that can't be fixed, at the rate that the Earth is tilting every year the only chance for the human race to still exist as a species in a few hundred years is a proper space program. Pollution is a much less immediate problem, even now if all the blue/green algae (which produce most of the oxygen on the planet) were wiped out there would still be enough oxygen for us to survive 500 more years, it'll be the poles switching that will kill us.

Poles flipping are killing us now?
