Hypothetic Life Detected on the Planet Venus

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Discovery and characterizations of extrasolar planets suppose that some of them possess physical conditions close to those of Venus. Therefore, the planet Venus, with its dense and hot (735 K) oxygen-free atmosphere of CO2 (mostly), having a high pressure of 9.2 MPa at the surface can be a natural laboratory for this kind of studies. On October 22/25, 1975 and March 1/5, 1982, experiments in television photography instrumented by the landers Venera-9, -10, -13 and -14 [1], yielded in large number of panoramas of the Venus surface (or their fragments) at the landing site. Over the past 31 and 38 years, no similar missions have been sent to Venus. In connection with the interest in what kind of life is possible existing on some of the exoplanets, the VENERA panoramas fit for analysis were re-processed and re-examined. A few relatively large objects were found with size ranging from a decimeter to half meter and with unusual morphology. The objects were observed in some images, but were absent in the other or altered their shape. Some of them were reviewed in Ksanfomality, 2012. Important is a search of Venusian flora. The article presents some of the obtained results.
