Life on Venus would prove there are aliens across the universe, expert insists

An alien expert has claimed discovering life on Venus would prove there is life all over the universe.

UFO investigator Nick Pope thinks it would be "the biggest and most significant scientific discovery in history" if it is proved there are living beings on the planet.

This week scientists revealed there could be living organisms floating in the atmosphere around Venus, raising hopes humans are not alone in the solar system.

Mr Pope, who once investigated UFOs for the Military of Defence, told the Daily Star Online: "This could be the biggest and most important scientific discovery in history.

"The implications are profound, because if lose arose not once but twice in our solar system, it suggests life isn't a cosmic accident or miracle, but something that happens naturally and frequently.

"This bombshell discovery suggests the universe is teeming with life. It's estimated there are 100 billion stars in our galaxy and 100 billion galaxies in the universe – and those are the lowball figures – so who knows what might be out there?"

Researchers have spotted phosphine, a rare and toxic gas, in the atmosphere of the planet closest to Earth, suggesting that it may be home to alien life.

Experts think the sheer quantity of the gas on Venus suggests that it is a sign of alien life in space.

The discovery is not a direct observation of life on another planet. But the sheer quantity of phosphine on Venus cannot be explained through any known process, leading researchers to suggest that it is a sign of alien life in our solar system.

The surface of the planet is very hot, making ground conditions very uncomfortable with temperatures reaching as high as a brain-melting 427C.

But the environment in its upper cloud deck is thought to be more hospitable. Despite this scientists had long thought the possibility of life on Venus as unlikely.

Mr Pope wants NASA to send a mission to the planet, but warned they will need to be careful about any samples they bring back to Earth.

He said: "This would have to be done under the strictest imaginable conditions.

"If people think Covid-19 is deadly, alien microbes could be truly apocalyptic. There would be no vaccine of cure for the Venus flu."

The UFO investigator thinks any intelligent lifeforms on Venus would be as wary of humans as the other way around.

Mr Pope added: "Venus is a hell planet. Any humans who landed would be instantly crushed by the immense atmospheric pressure. So any more complex life would be equally hellish – like something out of the Alien movies.

"What would they think of humans? Venusians would regard Earth as an inhospitable hell, and humans as monster.

"Maybe they'd have a point. To higher lifeforms, humanity would like like a primitive society whose primary activity is tribal warfare.

"If they're watching us now, in the grip of a pandemic, shuffling around in masks, they'd probably call us the plague planet."
