Well, did you hear the big news? Life on Venus. Life… on... Venus. Now, where have we heard this before? Oh right, life on Mars. If you’ve been watching any of my videos or listening to Astronomy Cast, you’re cautiously optimistic. Skeptical, but hopeful.

That’s the right position to take, because buckle up, the internet’s about to run with this news. It’s going to be difficult to figure out what was really discovered, and what this means for the search for life in the Universe.
