Did We Just Detect Life on Venus?

#Life Detected Venus #Venus #Venus Biosignature #Venus Biomarker #Science & Technology
The announcement of the detection of a possible biomarker in the atmosphere of Venus has shook up the field of astrobiology and grabbed headlines across the world. Today, we explore why Venus could plausibly host life, how this detection was made, and whether it really means that we've finally found extraterrestrial life. Written and presented by Prof Kipping, featuring guest Dr Caleb Scharf.

I knew the 2020 season finale was gonna be aliens.

It's a monumental announcement if they can back it up with further detection. Great video mate, just subscribed, made a video on this myself but not as extent, check it out : )

Ultimate twist. The life discovered was microscopic Russian bacteria. 👀

Phosphine is made on Earth by decaying organic life. Which also makes oil.
Which means.... VENUS HAS OIL!!!!

The thing i never understood about people’s views on alien life is why they are so quick to assume no life can survive on planets without an earth-like atmosphere and temps with water and stuff? Isnt evolution a thing? Whos to say life on other planets didnt adapt to survive scorching heat, high pressure and no oxygen?

My childhood mind: "Then, I'm guessing that humans were first found on venus, but they distroyed themselves, leaving guinea pigs that are our ancestors on earth"

If there is life there, that life is a reverse "alien". It evolved in acid. We can't make anything to survive Venus, it bloomed there. Amazing.
