NASA scientist: Venus Is The Most Likely Alien Hideout

NASA scientist Dr. Michelle Thaller has proposed an intriguing theory that raises the possibility of extraterrestrial life on Venus. Venus is the most likely location for aliens to hide, according to Dr. Thaller, despite the planet’s harsh conditions, including temperatures that can reach 475°C (900°F) and a dense atmosphere that is acidic.

Dr. Michelle Thaller, a research scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in the US, has proposed a novel theory. She has spotted possible signs of life in Venus’s atmosphere, which is rich in carbon dioxide. She is confident in her claim and is certain that life exists elsewhere.

In an Interview, Dr. Thaller talked about their ongoing efforts to look for potential life signs in Venus’ atmosphere. It was a surprise to learn that Venus had not been the primary focus at first. They have discovered atmospheric elements, though, that strikingly resemble compounds that may have been created by bacterial processes.

Venus is often referred to as “Earth’s twin” because of its similar size and structure, but it has very different environmental characteristics. Venus is categorically declared by astronomers to be unsuitable for human habitation. The practical viability of Dr. Thaller’s ideas has been questioned, according to Professor Dominic Papineau of the University College London.

Professor Papineau said, “Liquid water is necessity for chemical reactions that are related to life. This means that finding sources of liquid water is the main objective of the search for extraterrestrial life. Similar to this, looking for sedimentary rocks that once had connections to liquid water is a necessary step in the search for extraterrestrial fossils, the professor told MailOnline. The extremely high surface temperatures of modern Venus make it difficult to consider whether life could exist there. While it is conceivable that Venus once had liquid water, the widespread volcanic activity that appears to have covered a significant portion of its surface over the last few hundred million years presents a significant barrier to the possibility of finding fossils on Venus.”

Nevertheless, Professor Papineau and Dr. Thaller agreed that our solar system’s icy moons provide favorable conditions for potential microbial life. According to NASA’s data, our solar system contains 290 “typical moons,” with an additional 462 smaller asteroids and minor planets that do not fit this description.

Professor Papineau asserted that it is more likely that fossils and extraterrestrial life will be discovered on Mars and in the icy moons of the outer solar system. “This is due to the presence of liquid water on these bodies, including ice at Mars’ southern pole. He continued, “Ice-covered moons and Mars both have geological histories that may have preserved fossils.
