Phosphine, released by microbes in oxygen-starved environments, was present in quantities larger than expected Ian Sample Science editor @iansample Mon 14 Sep 2020 16.00 BSTLast modified on Mon 14 Sep 2020 16.01 BST  Life existing in Venus’s atmosphere is improbable as it includes clouds of 90% sulphuric acid. Photograph: ISAS/JAXA Traces of a pungent gas that waft through the clouds of Venus may be emanations from aerial organisms – microbial life, but not as we know it. Astronomers detected phosphine 30 miles up in the planet’s atmosphere and have failed to identify a process other than life that could account for its presence. The discovery raises the possibility that life gained a foothold on Earth’s inner neighbour and remnants clu...

The initial rollout is happening in areas with a greater concentration of elderly people, ...
