The announcement of the detection of a possible biomarker in the atmosphere of Venus has shook up the field of astrobiology and grabbed headlines across the globe. Today, we search why Venus should plausibly host life, how this detection was made, and whether it really means that we've finally found extraterrestrial life. Written and shown by Prof Kipping, featuring guest Dr Caleb Scharf.

"has shook up the field astrobiology." I was ready to hear some smart stats about Venus but I read the description and actually I'm leaving.
There is no life on venus
Humanity’s trouble is that it’s sinful, and therefore cannot go to Heaven. God saw our trouble and solved that trouble when He came to the very globe He created, in a body like ours, as Jesus. Jesus lived a great and sinless life on our behalf. He took all of our sins (past, present, and future) on Himself at the cross of Calvary. He took our punishment for them. He shed His blood and died on the cross, He was buried, and He rose on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He came to save all who would humble themselves and admit they’re lost and see their need to be saved by Him. If you simply claim God that you believe in His completed work on the cross and the blood He shed to wash away your sins, you will be saved. He is coming quick to take those who trust on Him!! :)
Anomalous and unexplained chemistry.... scp runs testing attention
Life? Only life out there is God with a large G... Period
This is a very intriguing concept. Even if it turns out that there is no life responsible for this phenomenon, the study of the chemical processes involved will only serve to increase our understanding of chemistry. Which is a victory in itself. Additionally, as you claimed, it will also increase our engineering expertise as a entire when it comes to the attempt to study it on-web. Nice video, and thank you for the news!
I came here from Apple news
I pray anyone who sees this live long and be successful in life.
Nice job youtube for now trending a nice video.
