Only a few days before, an international team of astronomer had found the trace of the molecular life on Venus. Yeah, on September 14, 2020, an international team of astronomers had announced the discovery of a rare molecule. They had discovered Phosphine on the cloud of Venus. This had led the way to the possible discovery of life in the Venus atmosphere. Aerial life on the cloud of the planet Venus. But, recently after the discovery, Russia had claimed Venus as a Russian Planet.
Why Russia Had Claimed Venus As The Russian Planet?
On Tuesday, the head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency had declared Venus a Russian Planet. He is saying that their country was the first and only one to land on the planet Venus after scientific study. Study which has found the sign of life on the planet atmosphere.
“ We believe that Venus is a Russian Planet, so we shouldn’t lag behind. Projects for the mission to Venus are included in a draft of the unified state program of space activities of Russia for the period 2021-2030,” said Dimitri Rogozin during a speech at the 2020 HeliRussia Exhibition.
He also said that the USSR was the only country that had launched a successful mission to the surface of Venus. He said, their spacecraft went there, gathered information about the planet.
In May, the space research institute of the Russian Academy of science had announced that a space program shall form in the near future. And now, the launch of Venera D had scheduled for the end of the year 2020. And as a part of the announcement, Roskosmos said that the Venera D mission would implement as an independent project. A national project without the broad involvement of international cooperation. Either what will happen will surely come at the end of the year 2020.
What We Know About The Life On Venus?
Russia claim to Venus as a Russian planet came when the International team including UK, US, and Japan estimated that the phosphine exists in Venus clouds at small concentration. About twenty molecules in every billion. The detection of Phosphine led to the idea of extraterrestrial life in the Venus atmosphere. An aerial life in the gaseous cloud above the Venus atmosphere.
Yeah, the planet which was known as the hell planet from starting is now after research is shown to supporting some form of life forms. However, the research is ongoing by the team and perfect answers will come after that.
