Life Might Exist in the Clouds of Venus 


The planet Venus is not usually what you’d think of as “habitable,” with its clouds of sulfuric acid and atmospheric pressure 92 times higher than Earth. The surface temperature is roughly 870 degrees Fahrenheit (465 degrees Celsius), which is hot enough to melt lead, so it’s safe to say life as we know it could not exist. However, a new study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the journal Astrobiology suggests there could be life on Venus. Well, not directly on it, but above the surface.
