Astronomers on Venus have found a second sign of life

Scientists have found the simplest amino acid glycine on Venus, which may indicate the presence of life on the planet. This is stated in an article by Arijita Manna of Midnapur College in West Bengal, published on the arXiv portal.

The element was found using the Atacama Large Antenna Array. The radio telescope has detected a characteristic glycine absorption line at a frequency of 261.87 GHz in the middle latitudes of the planet. The signal was most pronounced near the equator, it was not observed near the poles.

“In astrophysics, chemical physics and biophysics, methods for synthesizing the simplest amino acid glycine from simple molecules are of great importance for chemical evolution and the origin of life,” the author of the study said.

According to experts, the discovery may indicate the existence of early life forms in the atmosphere of Venus.

The question of studying the atmosphere of Venus became especially relevant after scientists from Massachusetts and Cardiff announced in September that they had found phosphine gas in the clouds of the planet, which may indicate the presence of life on the planet.
