Life spotted on Venus: Russian scientist
Moscow: Several objects resembling living beings were detected on photographs taken by a Russian landing probe in 1982 during a Venus mission, says an article published in the Solar System Research magazine.
Leonid Ksanfomaliti of the Space Research Institute of Russia`s Academy of Sciences published a research that analysed the photographs from the Venus mission made by a Soviet landing probe, Venus-13, in 1982.
The photographs feature several objects, which Ksanfomaliti said, resembled a "disk", a "black flap" and a "scorpion".
All of them "emerge, fluctuate and disappear", the scientist said, referring to their changing location on different photographs and traces on the ground.
"What if we forget about the current theories about the non-existence of life on Venus, let`s boldly suggest that the objects` morphological features would allow us to say that they are living," the magazine quoted Ksanfomaliti as saying.
No data proving the existence of life on Venus, where the ground temperature is 464 degrees Celsius, has ever been found.
