The international group of scientists has discovered in the atmosphere of Venus of the gas of phosphine gas, which could be produced by alive alien microorganisms.
The researchers warn the public from hasty conclusions, since the presence of phosphine does not confirm the presence on the planet of life, and only indicates an abnormal and inexplicable chemical composition.
Phosphine is a fairly known toxic gas with an unpleasant smell of rotting fish. On Earth, it is found near the pond mucus and litter of penguins, can be formed in some industrial processes, and is also a by-product of anaerobic bacteria.
Gas bunches were discovered at an altitude of more than 56 km above the surface of Venus, where the clouds have high acidity and quickly derive phosphine, so to form massive clots, it must constantly be produced in huge quantities that are difficult to explain nebiological sources. An alternative can still be an unknown scientist chemical or geological process.
Astrophysics found an abnormal phosphine content by chance, testing a new technique, not expecting to see such a gas bunch on Venus. However, additional studies using the James Telescope Clark Maxwell and the ALMA telescope confirmed the initial results.
Despite the presence of an indirect feature, scientists have to do a lot of work to find out the true cause of abnormally high phosphine content in the planet’s atmosphere.
Although space agencies prefer the study of Mars, many scientists talk about the possibility of creating air settlements on Venus at high altitude. NASA has already allocated funding for the development of an inflatable probe to study the planets with an extreme atmosphere
