NASA Found Signs of Life on the Planet Venus

NASA is considering approving two planetary science missions in April 2021. Venus is included in one such mission, which scientists say could help determine whether the planet has life or not.

The consideration of this mission was reinforced by an international research team that managed to find evidence of potential microbes residing in the very acidic Venus cloud, namely phosphine.

Phosphine itself is a gas on Earth that is produced by bacteria that inhabit an oxygen-free environment. This discovery of phosphine, provides strong potential evidence for the presence of life beyond Earth.
