Possible Signs of Life on Venus Rediscover By Scientists

Scientists have observed potential signs of life on Venus. The detection of phosphine gas, a molecule associated with biological activity, in the planet’s atmosphere has sparked curiosity. Phosphine is typically produced by certain microbes on Earth, leading to speculation about the presence of similar organisms on Venus. Additionally, dark streaks observed in the cloud layers suggest the presence of microorganisms capable of adapting to extreme conditions. While these findings are intriguing, further investigations are necessary to confirm the presence of life. Future missions and advanced technologies will allow scientists to explore Venus more extensively and provide a deeper understanding of its potential habitability.

Presented at the National Astronomy Meeting 2023 of the Royal Astronomical Society in Cardiff, Wales, this finding has reignited discussions about the potential for life on our neighboring planet.

James Clark Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) has been used by a team of professionals at Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii to examine Venus’ weather conditions. phosphine was observed on Venus.

Recently Hawaii-based James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) has discovered a stellar flare 10 billion times more powerful than the Sun’s solar flares, a history-making discovery that could unlock decades-old questions about the origin of our own Sun and planets, giving insight into how these celestial bodies were born.

According to a professor of astrophysics at Cardiff University Jane Greaves, results are very hopeful and important, and if the Phosphine is present in Venus’s Clouds that means there must be other life-supporting elements present on Venus and it is a big success towered the concept of life other than earth. She suggested that it could mean that there was life on Venus, or at the very least, some very unusual chemical reactions occurring on the planet.

But having Phosphine in Venus’s air is no means of life there, according to scientists might be possible that an unknown non-biological process is responsible for producing the phosphine. Greaves gave a statement that they need more deep search on it to determine the molecule’s source. On the other hand, she also said that present results are too supportive and encouraging about finding life on other plants.
