Is there life floating in the clouds of Venus? It's an extraordinary possibility - but this is what astronomers are now considering after detecting a gas in the atmosphere they can't explain. That gas is phosphine - on Earth it's associated with life, with microbes living in the guts of animals like penguins, or in oxygen-poor environments such as swamps. Given everything we know about Venus and the conditions that exist there, no-one has yet been able to explain why phosphine has been detected. This means a life source deserves consideration.

"Through my whole career I have been interested in the search for life elsewhere in the Universe, so I'm just blown away that this is even possible," Prof Greaves said. "But, yes, we are genuinely encouraging other people to tell us what we might have missed. Our paper and data are open access; this is how science works." Tap the link in our bio to read more about what they have discovered, and what it could mean.
