MOSCOW - A Russian probe found living beings on Venus!
This is actually the second time that a Russian probe has found life on Venus. In 1982, several objects resembling living beings were detected on photographs taken by a Russian landing probe on a Venus mission.
Leonid Ksanfomaliti of the Space Research Institute of Russia’s Academy of Sciences published a research that analysed the photographs from the Venus mission made by a Soviet landing probe, Venus-13, in 1982.
The photographs feature several objects, which Ksanfomaliti said, resembled a “disk”, a “black flap” and a “scorpion”.
All of them “emerge, fluctuate and disappear”, the scientist said, referring to their changing location on different photographs and traces on the ground.
“What if we forget about the current theories about the non-existence of life on Venus, let’s boldly suggest that the objects’ morphological features would allow us to say that they are living,” the magazine quoted Ksanfomaliti as saying.
Now, the Russians once again have proof of life on Venus, where the ground temperature is 464 degrees Celsius.
How is it possible for life to survived in that atmosphere?
“These are special beings that have adapted to their atmosphere. They are definitely alive, and thriving,” said Russian scientist Boris Zveneko.
A Russian rocket successfully launched the Venus Express spacecraft in 2011 for the European Space Agency, ESA, the first probe designed to study Venus in years.
Soyuz FG-Fregat booster, carrying the Venus-Express, blasted off on March 9, 2011, ain Baikonur Cosmodrome.
It reached Venus last week and… discovered life.
“We have once again proven that the Russian space program is far superior to the Americans, who no longer even care about space,” said Vladmir Putin. “Russians will conquer Venus, Mars and all the planets. Americans will conquer nothing. They are done in space.”
The Russians promise to release photos of the beings in the next three months after they have been “cleared” by Putin.
