Atronomers have detected phosphine in the atomosphere of Venus and have concluded that according to our current knowlegde of scientific processes, it can only mean one thing... life.

Here is the study https://www.nature.com/articles/s41550-020-1174-4

NASA Wants to Send Humans to Venus. Here's Why That's a Brilliant Idea

''The astronomers, who reported the finding on Monday in a pair of papers, have not collected specimens of Venusian microbes, nor have they snapped any pictures of them. But with powerful telescopes, they have detected a chemical — phosphine — in the thick Venus atmosphere. After much analysis, the scientists assert that something now alive is the only explanation for the chemical’s source.'' https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/14/science/venus-life-clouds.html

''Two different telescopes, at two different times, looked at Venus and saw the chemical signature that is unique to phosphine. If this gas is really there, Venus has either got some kind of geologic or chemical activity going on that no one understands, or alien life might be living right next door.'' https://www.npr.org/2020/09/14/912619891/a-possible-sign-of-life-right-next-door-to-earth-on-venus

By the way, the possibility of life on Venus was the subject of one of our Nerd Trivia questions a week ago so if you're not in the know, level up and come to trivia ; ]

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you really want to test a mans character, give him power.
