Unbelievable. Is the hottest planet in the Solar System showing signs of microbial life in its atmosphere?

She is not only helping drive this research through her world renowned expertise in studying exoplanet atmospheres, but is also planning to spearhead a mission to Venus in the very near future to answer, once and for all, whether we have indeed discovered life on the planet Venus.
