Biological signature in the atmosphere of Venus
#1
Information 
Phosphine found in the atmosphere.  So far, science is aware that only biological activity produces this chemical.

What is sweet: This information isn't supposed to be released to the public until tomorrow.  From TOS:

Quote:More info from a leaked blog that hadn't published yet (it was on a delayed release for tomorrow). Thanks Google cache!

Nice to see a scoop.

Cheers

Biological activity?  tinybighuh 

But, but, our smart scientists keep telling us it's too hot for life on Venus.   tinyhuh 

Maybe they never took into account that maybe all life doesn't have to be like us humans? 

Or,

Maybe it's just another lie they have been telling us all along.   tinysure

I'm hoping they find some kind of biological fire imps that dance in the flames and screech like banshees!

-- me.

I may well be wrong about that, but it will be interesting to see what comes of this.

... and today, the net is alive with the sound of articles reporting the detection of phosphine in Venus' atmosphere.

RN3 knew before the wide world.

Venus is so hot that it melts lead. We couldn't even send rovers there as if they'd make it to the surface, they'd be toast within a couple hours.

But some microscopic dudes are living here on Earth, in deep sea Volcano zones where nothing survives so...


The only pictures of the Venus surface taken by a Russian lander back in 1975, before it melted:

Amazing they got back any surface images of Venus.  Looks bleak.
