Blob lives matter.

And here all the time I was thinking it was life we could sit down and have a conversation with over dinner. Not ME being the dinner. frown

Oh, help. Now someone is going to start booking flights using the tag-line:

"A new life awaits you in the off-world colonies, a chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure, virus-free!"

Strange chemical in clouds of Venus defies explanation. Could it be a sign of life?

Discovering life beyond Earth may well start with a sniff, a whiff of some chemical that scientists struggle to explain without invoking a strange, shadowy microbe. That first step has happened on Mars and on a few distant moons, and now, scientists suggest, on Venus.

A team of astronomers announced today (Sept. 14) that it has spotted the chemical fingerprint of phosphine, which scientists have suggested may be tied to life, in the clouds of the second rock from the sun. The finding is no guarantee that life exists on Venus, but researchers say it's a tantalizing find that emphasizes the need for more missions to the hot, gassy planet next door.

"The interpretation that it's potentially due to life, I think, is probably not the first thing I would go for," Victoria Meadows, an astrobiologist at the University of Washington who was not involved in the new research, told Space.com.

So cool!

Thanks, I watched the press briefing on Space.com. Glad they put it up on YT for everyone else.

Someone wants a grant.

And? That's how it works. Research doesn't fund itself.


"Possible life on planet/moon/asteroid/comet X" is the science equivalent of clickbait.

You know how we're always worried about contaminating planets that could possibly have life of their own? Then imagine we finally discover independent life on another world and it ends up being a poisonous gas? Now imagine being a rat on a rockship on its way to Venus, I'd be afraid, very afraid.
