Do Russian Probe Pics from ’82 Prove Life on Venus?

by


This is a very interesting debate going on right now in the scientific community. A Russian scientist named Leonid Ksanfomaliti has checked out some images shot by a Russian probe sent to Venus in 1982 called Venera 13. The 79-year-old Russian scientist from the Space Research Institute in Moscow thinks that the crescent-shaped thing in the right side of the photo below is proof of life on Venus.

According to the Russian, the object is an organism with the body of a scorpion or a crab, a disc shape and a back flap that changed position from one shot to the next the probe took. Life on Venus is hard for most people to imagine, since the surface of the planet can reach temps of 464°C, and the gravity is nine times that of Earth.

A scientist that works with the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University doesn’t believe the Russian is seeing what he thinks. According to Jonathon Hill, who processes images NASA takes of Mars, what Prof. Ksanfomaliti sees is a piece of mechanical equipment which broke off on landing. He also thinks that the reason it looks like it changed positions is that the images were taken by two different cameras on the craft.

Hill also says that the same object shows up in photos taken by another probe called Venera 14 that landed nearby. Venera 14 and Venera 13 are identical, and likely both dropped the same bit of debris on the ground. What do you think from the blurry images here? I can certainly see something you might think are legs, but the mechanical equipment theory seems much more logical.

    Gravity on Venus is 90% of that of earth, not 9 times that of earth, and while I would love for them to find alien life, this does look like debris a lot, especially in the second picture.

    Crushed Soda can..;) Some alien must have been checkin out the probe and hucked his can at the thing.

  3. insane says:

    Without time stamps on the photos it would be impossible to say, it looks like a scorpion….. if your retarded!

  4. L says:

    it looks like a crab whic im not surprised this proves if an animal like a crab can exist on another planet something smarter can exist gods amazing isnt he?

    The theory that is is the same object in the same just from different angles is obviously wrong. The first top picture shows the crescent shaped object, its curve on the backside of it, it right infront of the traingular spikes coming out of the machine. On the second picture, the backside curve is not near ANY traingular spikes, the spikes are now on the right side of the crescent shaped object, so If this NASA guy can be so wrong this is troubling, maybe he is trying to play down a possible russian find before the US could find it. If it was a flat metallic debris, it obviously did move position, how would it move in that kind of manner? essentially slide up and then over to the right. So the US explanation makes less sense

    - I had to edit typos- The theory that it is the same object in both photos, just from different angles is obviously wrong. The first top picture shows the crescent shaped object, its curve on the backside of it, it right infront of the traingular spikes coming out of the machine. On the second picture, the backside curve is not near ANY traingular spikes, the spikes are now on the right side of the crescent shaped object, so If this NASA guy can be so wrong this is troubling, maybe he is trying to play down a possible russian find before the US could find it.
