Is there life on Venus? Teacher FAQ with researchers

As was reported heavily in the media, researchers from an international collaboration recently announced the discovery of the molecule phosphine (PH3) in the atmosphere of Venus. With no known explanations for where the molecules came from, the two explanations left are some unknown chemistry or biological processes – i.e. life. What’s the basis on which the researchers have claimed life, how did they come to this conclusion, and what are the next steps in the journey of scientific discovery? Cardiff University’s Dr Chris North will chair a session combining short summary talks from the researchers with a chance for teachers to ask their own questions – or those of their students!
