NASA-Funded Study Says There Could Be Alien Life On Venus

As noted by a recent report, extraterrestrial could inhabit our solar system, and they could be living within the acid clouds of Venus, notes a NASA-funded study, recently published in the Journal Astrobiology.

The study backed by NASA indicates that Aliens (although not fully developed aliens, but bacteria) could call the hazardous clouds on Venus their home.

Exerpts came to this conlcusion after using space probes to detect dark areas around the rust-colored body, which resemble the light-absorbing properties of bacteria here on Earth.

As noted by experts, these mysterious dark spots on Venus could be blooms of alien bacterial, similar to those found on Earth in lakes and ponds.

Because the clouds of Venus are composed of sulfuric acid, they reflect around 75 percent of the sunlight that hits them, causing them to appear nearly entirely opaque.

Venus has been dubbed as Earth’s Evil twin by a number of astrophysics and astronomers because of the hazardous, and inhospitable conditions reigning on its surface, where it rains Acid, and the temperature is around 462 degrees Celsius.


The research, suggesting tiny Venusian alien may inhabit the clouds of Venus, was recently published in the Journal Astrobiology, and it infers how alien microbes may survive by being blown around by extreme winds in the cooler cloud tops of Venus.

“On Earth, we know that life can thrive in very acidic conditions, can feed on carbon dioxide, and produce sulfuric acid,” says Rakesh Mogul, a professor of biological chemistry at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and a co-author on the new paper.

The researcher explains that the cloudy, highly reflective and acidic atmosphere of Venus is composed mostly of carbon dioxide and water droplets containing sulfuric acid.

However, this isn’t the first time someone has suggested there may be life on Venus.

In fact, the habitability of Venus’ clouds was first raised in 1967 by noted biophysicist Harold Morowitz and famed astronomer Carl Sagan. Following this theory, the idea that Venus’ clouds may bear alien life was expanded by planetary scientists David Grinspoon, Mark Bullock and their colleagues.

“Venus shows some episodic dark, sulfuric rich patches, with contrasts up to 30–40 percent in the ultraviolet and muted in longer wavelengths. These patches persist for days, changing their shape and contrasts continuously and appear to be scale dependent,” says Limaye.
