Scientists have detected a gas called phosphine in the harshly acidic clouds of Venus
that indicates microbes may inhabit Earth’s uninviting neighbour.
The researchers did not discover actual life forms, but noted that on Earth phosphine is produced by bacteria thriving in oxygen-starved environments.
“I was very surprised – stunned, in fact,” said astronomer Jane Greaves of Cardiff University in Wales, lead author of the research published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
