MOSCOW, January 20 (RIA Novosti)
An article published in the Solar System Research magazine reported Several objects resembling living beings were detected on photos made by a Russian landing probe in 1982 during a Venus mission.
Leonid Ksanfomaliti of the Space Research Institute of Russia’s Academy of Sciences published research that analyzed the photos from the Venus mission made by a Soviet landing probe, Venus-13, in 1982.
The photos feature several objects, which Ksanfomaliti said, resembled “a disk,” “a black flap” and “a scorpion.” All of them “emerge, fluctuate and disappear,” the scientist said, referring to their changing location on different photos and traces on the ground.
"What if we forget about the current theories about the nonexistence of life on Venus, let’s boldly suggest that the objects’ morphological features would allow us to say that they are living,” Solar System Research quoted Ksanfomaliti as saying.
No data proving the existence of life on Venus, where the ground temperature is 464 degrees Celsius (867 degrees Fahrenheit), has ever been found.

- firstname.lastname@example.orgExtreme life forms on Venus are very possible17:41, 21/01/2012If scientists have learned anything about life on Earth, it is that life can exist anywhere that there is an energy source.
Venus is filled with energy to sustain life. Not life as we know it. But life none the less adapted to the conditions that exist on Venus.
It would be very interesing to find out more, if another Venus probe could be built to withstand the extreme pressure and heat on the planet.
A probe with the ability to last for several months and send visual data back to an orbiting communications rely ship.
- barkmannCaméra protection19:28, 21/01/2012Sorry but this object on the photography is just the protection shield of the "Venera13" probe ...
Here a link to a picture which show perfectly this "shield" before its separation from the probe once it became unuseful : http://www.myspacemuseum.com/v_venera13i_24.jpg
I'm personnaly sure that life exist outside of our world, but that "Disc" is definitely not. (sorry).
- ruquickcensored?23:10, 30/01/2012To not allow my last post suggests the writer of this article is censoring, with bias.
- ruquicksecond attempt23:26, 30/01/2012Allow this post and I'll retract my previous post.
The article does not reference the "shield" in the photo as the objects in question. To assume that
it is, is a little absurd, don't ya think? No scientist worth his pay would make the mistake of confusing a camera shield for something "that emerges, fluctuates and then disappears, leaving traces on the ground.....(sorry)

New ties between Russia and Japan would mark not only a breakthrough in their relations but also a significant shift in Northeast Asia’s political dynamic. Both are secondary players in a region overshadowed by an increasingly assertive China, which has not hesitated to push against the boundaries of its neighbors.
