With the Russian scientist who found life on Venus, U.S. experts have argued. Sensational statements of the Russian scientist that there is life on Venus, experts have refuted NASA. They explained the appearance of the photographs of the planet "endangered" sites chain of coincidences. And some of the young researchers at all ridiculed the hypothesis of a scientist.
Recently, the Institute of Space Research Leonid Ksanfomaliti published a discussion paper in which resulted in evidence of possible existence of life on Venus. Studying the photos taken by the Soviet probe 30 years ago, he drew attention to the fact that some of the objects in the pictures disappear and appear.
In particular, Ksanfomaliti noticed in the photos "disk" that changes its form, a "black flap", which appeared and then disappeared from the cone to measure the mechanical properties of the soil, and, finally, "scorpion", shaped like a terrestrial arachnids. He came around the 90th minute of filming, and after 26 minutes gone, leaving in its place a groove in the ground.
The scientist suggested that "the inhabitants of" Venus lander startled noise, some of them fell asleep dumped soil, and they are not immediately able to get out and leave the dangerous area. This explains the fact that some of the items appear to hour and a half delay.
But U.S. experts believe that the black "disk" — a camera lens cap and rolled away from the probe during landing. With regard to his movements in space, then it is only an illusion, according to NASA. In "Venus-13" had two cameras on both sides, so a piece of cover imprinted on some photos, but does not hit the shots taken from a different angle, results in The Daily Mail According to experts of the American space agency Ted Strick photographic materials. And the rest of the objects — it's just noise, "reinforced" by copying the image and increase its part, said his colleague Jonathan Hill.
Later, Venus repeatedly photographed probes NASA, but they have received images more detailed than the old Soviet, no signs of living creatures were found, highlighted by the agency. In addition, since 2006 for this planet observing apparatus of the European Space Agency's Venus Express, but he found no signs of life on the planet.
Scientists do not exclude that in the distant past on Venus can inhabit living organisms. However, its greenhouse effect warmed the atmosphere to a temperature of +464 ° C, which, by earthly standards, eliminates the possibility of life on the planet.
Young scientist Emilia Lakdavalla online non-profit organization The Planetary Society has published a devastating article highly critical findings of the Russian researcher. "I can not believe that such a respected scientist could publish something so senseless!" — She said. According to her, Ksanfomaliti always thought that if on the verge of reality, or crazy, because 30 years peered into the decrepit pictures, with no fresh data. But the most plausible version of it seemed "star disease". "I often see people, making sure his genius, all limits, thinking that any crazy assumption is true only because they are always right", — concluded Lakdavalla.
For a colleague stood up by Russian scientists. Thus, the head of the laboratory of the Institute of Geochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Bazilevskii reminded that any hypothesis has a right to exist as long as thoroughly disproved. "First of all, I would like to emphasize that Leonid Ksanfomaliti — a real, serious scientist who created the device for the same missions to Venus, has written several books on planetary science," — he said in an interview, "Moskovsky Komsomolets". He recalled that the organisms that live under a pressure of 100 atmospheres, only recently discovered on the ocean floor. However, survivors of the 500-degree heat is not found, said Bazilevskii.
