What else will 2020 bring?

Well, at least phosphene in the Venus atmosphere.

Nice 3 min Youtube video explaining the finding.

[t.co]

Life on Venus is a hot topic right now.

Usually in this field, "hot topic" means research area with zero or near-zero empirical data, ripe for the speculation of a thousand experts, each describing the elephant from their perspective...

I remember when I was growing up, hearing or reading something about it being more likely to have had Venusian visitors to Earth than Martians.

The late Dr Carl Sagan lost his Harvard faculty position for suggesting life could be on Venus... From a science paper in 1967!

I hear that the working environment there is very high pressure.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Maybe that's what I'm remembering. I would have been about 13, and pretty impressionable. smiling smiley
