Farting Aliens On Crank

Nature Astronomy, a peer-reviewed and respected scientific journal, have published their findings of an unusually high amount of phosphine gas in the atmosphere of Venus.  This molecule is almost exclusively associated with the metabolism of living things or as a byproduct of human technology.  For example, here on Earth, high concentrations of phosphine is found to be created by farts and meth labs.  While it's doubtful that the second planet from the sun is home to a society of flatulent Venusians tweakers, the presence of phosphine in the quantity that was discovered strongly suggests that Venus may be home to some form of life.

Add this to the ongoing list of inanity that has taken place in 2020.
