Researchers and astronomers deduce that the neighboring planet, Venus, has the same biological method in its atmosphere as the home planet Earth in a new study. Neil deGrasse Tyson was among the first to theorize this possibility in the StarTalk podcast and astrobiologist David Grinspoon and Paul Mecurio.
Venus is the second brightest object in the celestial heavens, next to the sun, but it is not the only "glimmering" trivia about the planet. Also, the second planet from the blazing ball of star, Venus presents evidence that it may be a habited planet in the early days.
Neil deGrasse Tyson initially theorized Venus' lifeforms on the StarTalk podcast focusing on astronomy's greatest questions and facts. Around the last weeks of September this year, DeGrasse Tyson engaged on a "comedic" discourse that tackled Venus' possibility of life.
Venus Lifeforms: Research shows Biological Method in Atmosphere same as Earth's
According to Sputnik International News, the researchers' study initially reported by Science Alert shows that lifeform basics were found on Venus' surface. The same "biological method" discovered by astronomers was said to be the most basic amino acids in human's genetic code.
Glycine is the amino acid found on Venus, highly-suggesting the imprint of lifeform on the Solar System's brightest planet. According to News Medical.net, Glycine is a non-essential amino acid naturally produced by the human body.
This evidence strongly points out the possibility of lifeforms in Venus. However, it only pertains to the past, particularly during the ancient cosmic times, because Venus' lifeforms are non-existent in the present. The biological method is the same as what Earth produces and shows, due to human beings' current existence.
Cornell University's arXiv recently published the journal entitled "Detection of simplest amino acid glycine in the atmosphere of the Venus," which shows the pieces of evidence. Venus' atmosphere shows the same biological component commonly found on animal proteins.
Neil deGrasse Tyson: Venus Lifeforms on StarTalk Podcast
One of the most recognized and respectable American astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, recently delved into the possibility of lifeforms on the planet named after the Roman deity of beauty, Venus. On deGrasse Tyson's StarTalk podcast, the group concentrated on phosphine gasses emitted by the planet.
The astrophysicist was accompanied by astrobiologist David Grinspoon, also known as Dr. Funky Spoon, centered on human-made emissions to be seen on the planet. Volcanoes were initially considered for this discovery, however, the natural cones cannot produce phosphine gas.
Venus' Lifeforms: Jupiter Eradicated Life During the Ancient Times
News is giving the public ideas that lifeforms or other sentient beings are present on other planets, particularly Venus. However, according to Science Alert, astrobiologist Stephen Kane said that Jupiter's migration brought harm to Venus's lifeforms in the Solar System's ancient days.
The discovery came from the study that compares Earth and Venus to be habitable planets, mainly focusing on why the human globe is the only current habitable planet in the entire Solar System. The study is currently only a Kane suggestion, with the research available in the Planetary Science Journal.
