  • life on Venus

    I didn't expect to see an announcement like this in my lifetime. https://nyti.ms/35yYjmA

    The best shot at returning to our sister planet may come from New Zealand. Peter Beck, from Invercargill, may be the next Elon
    Musk.

    Very cool.

    I was watching NHK tv today, Japanese station. The short show was about the space craft Hayabusa2.. Expected to deliver its payload this year they said, dont know the age of the show.

    ION propulsion. Feels like Im living in the age of the Jetsons.

    The show is still playing on rerun. Very interesting. JR

      At your link the NY Times wants me to surrender personal information in order to read this. I won't. If they don't want people to read things, why do they put them on the internet? Don't bother answering, I know why.

          Alan, I get the same problem with the NY Times, different link notwithstanding.

            Mike, as a subscriber to the NYT I cannot see the problem. I have posted two short links now, does that help? If not I suggest googling "Life on Venus" and "Rocket Lab."

              Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
              In all of the directions it can whiz;
              As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
              Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
              So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
              How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
              And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
              'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!
              All of the gear, no idea...

                Often it's because you've visited the site and reached the free limit. Firefox (possibly others) has the container tabs, if you open the link in one, it resets the count and can read it

                  You can also delete the NYT cookie in the cookie management of your browser. Most sites that have a "limit" keep that in a cookie.

                    We can't even deal with a local virus and they want to import one from outer space?

                      So the upper atmosphere smells like rotting fish, and the only known way for that gas to develop is from life. Could very well be another yet to be discovered way for that to happen, or there is life.

                        Or... Life developed on some other planet has been using Venus as a compost heap. Let's cover all the bases here, eh?

                            That's pretty wild. If life dwells in the Venusian clouds, it will stay there. I can imagine a future robotic mission to gather a sample and perform test in situ. The presence of RNA or DNA might be a boost for a Panspermia Hypothesis.

                              I remember watching "Revenge of the Teenage Vixens from Outer Space".
