Life on Venus?
I'm a firm believer in denying most of the shit my government spews out. I'm not a conspiracy theorist or anything; I just examine everything very, very thoroughly. In the case of interplanetary discoveries, galaxy exploration and extraterrestrial findings, I'm 100% sure we are not the only form of life in this solar system. There's just no fucking way that is possible. To think otherwise is a mark of arrogance and ignorance because life comes in all shapes and sizes. Just because it isn't bug-eyed, laser shooting human-extermination squads come to rob us off our resources or wipe us out because we have gold doesn't mean it isn't out there.
I saw a cool story about a Russian scientist that claims to have discovered what he thinks are forms of life from photos relayed off a satellite they launched in 2005 to scan Venus for any signs of life or changes in the overall atmospheric surface of the planet. dailycaller.com/2012/01/22/russian-scientist-claims-signs-of-life-spotted-on-venus/
The Indo-Asian News Service reported Saturday that a Russian scientist has published what he claims is evidence of life on Venus, Earth’s nearest neighbor in the direction of the sun.
Leonid Ksanfomaliti, an astronomer based at the Space Research Institute of Russia’s Academy of Sciences, analyzed photographs taken by a Russian landing probe during a 1982 during a mission to explore the heavily acid-clouded planet.
Venus is roughly the same size as Earth, but it has a thick atmosphere dominated by carbon dioxide. With an atmospheric pressure 92 times Earth’s, a waterless and volcano-riddled surface and a surface temperature of 894 degrees, the planet has never been considered a serious target of research into the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
But in his article, published in the magazine Solar System Research, Ksanfomaliti says the Russian photographs depict objects resembling a “disk,” a “black flap” and a “scorpion.”
“What if we forget about the current theories about the non-existence of life on Venus?” he wrote. “Let’s boldly suggest that the objects’ morphological features would allow us to say that they are living.”
