Description

While Mars may be the planet that springs to mind when there are discussions of possible alien life in our Solar System, a publication on the discovery of a rare gas (phosphine) in Venus atmosphere may mean that there is more than one planet that possesses the potential for life.

Dr Emily Drabek-Maunder of the Royal Observatory Greenwich and Prof. Jane Greaves of Cardiff University chat about the unexpected detection of this gas in the upper clouds of Venus. They will also discuss what the team originally set out to do, what the next steps are for understanding Venus and its possibility for life, and the curious link between phosphine and penguins.
